How to import all Instagram photos into Google+

Now that you're on Google+, it's time to get all your carefully-edited photos on there, too. Follow this easy guide to importing your Instagram photos onto your profile.

Now that you're on  Google+ , the next step after settling in is to add some color to your profile--not in the over-indulgent Myspace kind of way--but with photos.

Although Google automatically adds Picasa albums to your profile, you might be wondering how to get other images, like Instagram photos, on there without downloading and re-uploading them one-by-one.

Enter Instaport, it's a free web service that swiftly exports all your Instagram photos into a ZIP folder on your hard drive.

Step 1: Go to Instaport.me and sign in with your Instagram account. You'll be asked to authorize the connection.

Step 2: Under "Choose export service", select "Download .zip file" and click "Start export". 

Step 3: A ZIP folder with your Instagram photos will be downloaded to your default downloads folder (this varies). Unzip (decompress) the folder and note its location.

Step 4: Sign into Google+ and head to your profile. Click the "Photos" tab and select "Upload new photos". In the pop-up window, select "Select photos from your computer" and locate the unzipped Instagram folder.
