Your go-to solution will be to just install the app, let RiteTag serve up hashtags by notification after you upload photos to Instagram

The steps:

  1. Install the RiteTag app for iOS or Android 
  2. Open the app and go to Hashtags for Instagram tool via menu in the top left corner
  3. Tap on Sign in with Facebook and approve all dialogs shown by Facebook (there will be several of them). This will give RiteTag permissions to load and post comments on photos from all your Instagram Business Profiles. Be sure to toggle to "on" the "manage your pages" option when authorizing RiteTag through in the Facebook authorization process.
  4. When you post a new photo to Instagram (natively or via any app), RiteTag generates hashtags and sends you a push notification when they are ready.
  5. Tap on the notification to select the hashtags you like and post them all as a comment to your Instagram photo in just one tap!

NOTE: your Instagram account will need to be Business, not Personal, to use this solution. Here's why and how to switch your Instagram account to Business.
