What it does
Instagram Ingenuity is a web app which allows users to upload their next potential photo for Instagram. It analyzes the photo and returns several variables: the contrast, the black-and-white level; theme (landscape, selfie, portrait, and other); the “Instagram Popularity Quotient” (IPQ); which ranks the photos’ potential popularity on a 1-5 scale based on the most popular images from Instagram. The IPQ helps you determine which photo would be most marketable for your feed.
