I understand that Instagram is simply going to degrade my image quality no matter what. However, that is the easiest place to display my photos to all my friends and family. I can't figure out an effective way to get pictures from my d7100 to instagram without them looking like total crap. At this point I feel like I've looked everywhere and tried everything. I know it is possible because I've seen other people upload fairly high quality pictures with the same camera. Any help is extremely appreciated.
Just incase it helps, I've tried e-mailing the pictures to my phone and using dropbox. I have also tried different sized Jpegs ranging from 500px all the way to full size.
