Hi guys!
I've just started using Instagram. Can I use links back to the photos on my website? I've read varying answers to this but can't find anywhere to paste links.

Is it advisable to use watermarks? All my website photos are watermarked but I've read they are not advised for Instagram.

I think the plethora of replies that you have had would signify that no-one uses it. I belong but only to see what my grandkids are posting!

Ok! Thanks guys! Are there particular reasons why it's not used by people here much?

I use FB too. What other sites/services are good for driving traffic to your own site?

I use it every few days.

There's no evidence if that's true or not. Angie thinks because people didn't answer you tech query that it signifies it's not used by epz members. I think that's a big conclusion to jump to. I'm on the fence about it.

It doesn't really compete with epz, I'll see if I can start a topic on it.

Take no notice. It's the young-ish making some sort of point. Mistakenly so, I might add.

i used it when it first appeared and was, for the main, used by photographers. As it was discovered by the social yoof, i left it alone.
