@pixelfed Thank you for making a step/guide which make it easier for user.

@ahmd_amsyr No problem, based on feedback, users will be able to upload the full instagram zip and we will only store the photos and media.json captions. There will be an easy automatic option and a manual option where you perform the actions like on the screenshot.

@pixelfed that really nice man, I cant wait for the beta next week. :blobaww:

@pixelfed oh my fucking god!!!! I did not think that this was an actual thing... I'm so hyped!!!

@pixelfed Oh, I have been waiting for a federated Instagram-killer for years!

@pixelfed Hi!
Will the instagram account import function work the same way if it is done from the account or from the exported archive?

I want to delete my account, but first I'd like to import everything to PixelFed.

When importing, are the photos published with their original date?

@pixelfed Wow that's awesome ! Can we hope for a connect feature which duplicates the pictures on Instagram on real-time ?

Some people doesn't want yet to delete instagram, but to test something else.

@phileas I believe that would violate IG terms of service. You have to do an IG data export and then upload that to our service.

Facebook is stopping postings via buffer for the simple accounts. Will work for "pages" only: Facebook will block any import/export in future. They what people think, Facebook is the internet. #deletefacebook

@pixelfed are there updates on this? 😆

I've created an account at pixelfed.social and instagram imports are flagged as "coming soon". I don't know if it's under development, if it was released in a different version than pixelfed.social uses or whatnot. Also couldn't find a dedicated issue, but if there is one, I can try to help :)

@pixelfed is this available for public use at all, in a dev release or something?

I've been waiting forever. I need this.

@pixelfed hey, did this ever land, or is this still an upcoming feature?
