Surely you have noticed that, when you want to do Instagram giveaways with our app, we ask you to get the URL of the photo where the drawing will take place. It may happen that you don’t know how to do it, that’s why in this post, we show you step by step how to get the URL of an Instagram photo.

What is the URL and why do I need to get it?

The URL is the unique address that resources on the Internet have. These resources can be web pages, texts, videos and, of course, photos or images.

To be able to carry out the giveaway on a specific publication (for example a photo, image or post) we need to know what the precise address is and from there extract the comments. Then, you will be able to apply the filters and draw the prize among the participants.

It is really important that you copy the URL of the post where the giveaway is going to take place and paste it in the requested box, so we can upload the comments of that particular post.

You can get the URL you want from your computer or laptop or from your cell phone.

How to get the url from Instagram

  1. Go to in your browser and log into the Instagram account from which you will run the giveaway.
  2. Once in your profile, click on the selected photo (in the post where the drawing will be held).
  3. Right-click on the date of the post.
  4. Click where it says “copy link address“.
  5. Paste the URL in AppSorteos (AppSorteos: Free Instagram Comment Picker) where it says “enter a url”.
