Tag Instagram Photos and Reels Directly From Your Calendar!

Increase the reach of your content through photo tagging available for images and reels!

Updated over a week ago

Use HeyOrca’s Instagram Photo and Reel Tagging to save you time when scheduling your content, and to credit Instagram accounts tagged in your photos!

Before we get started, here are a few things to keep in mind when using this feature:

  • Photo Tagging is only available for single-image posts and reels Multi-photo, carousel, stories, or Reels posts are not supported at this time.

  • You can only tag public Instagram accounts due to Instagram API limitations. Private accounts cannot be tagged.

Tagging Image Posts

Here’s how to start tagging accounts in Instagram Posts in HeyOrca!

Step 1: In your Content Calendar, create a new Instagram post, or click on an existing Instagram post. You’ll want to make sure that a photo is added to your post, too!

Step 2: Click on the Photo Tagging Icon on the bottom left corner of your image.

Step 3: Click “Tag Account” and start typing the account name that you’d like to tag.

Step 4: Next, you’ll need to place your tag on the image. Click anywhere on the photo to select your tag placement. This is where your tag will appear once published to Instagram.

Step 5: Click “Add Account Tag” to confirm your placement and tag, and click “Save” on the bottom right corner of the window to save your changes. You can edit your current tags or add new ones at any time by using the pencil icon or clicking “Add Another Tag”.

Tagging Reels

It's easy to tag your Instagram Reels right from your HeyOrca calendar!

Tagging IG Reels has a very similar workflow to tagging a user for a photo! To tag your Reel, select the user icon located next on the bottom of your Reel video.

Once you've pressed that button, you'll be greeted with the Reel tagging page where you can search for the user you'd like to tag.

Note: Similar to tagging images, we can only tag publicly available profiles.

Once your post has been tagged with your desired account(s), you can press 'Save' to finalize your post.

You can also hover over the user tagging icon located on your reel, to see who has been tagged.
