    Hi Joan,

    Thanks for the comment

    The original question here was from 2014 and was referring to the an option to copy an asset from Instagram directly. That option was removed in June 2020 after changes made to the Instagram API prevented unauthenticated access to the images.

    If you're using Instagram's API directly, you can copy the authenticated asset URLs and upload to Cloudinary, but the "instagram_name" delivery type can no longer be expected to work.

    Regards,

    Stephen

    When trying to fetch the referred image, Instagram returns a 403 error (Access forbidden), which is probably returned because of a privacy setting of the user. Can you please try this again with profile names instead of the users IDs?

    Please note that you can use default placeholder images to be shown for cases of broken / not-found images.

    For example:

    http://res.cloudinary.com/<your\_cloud\_name>/image/instagram/d_<default\_image>.jpg/38520574.jpg
