Auto post wordpress image to Instagram plugin

Hi everybody!
Yesterday, my customer from Freelancer.com asked me to create a plugin that allow auto post image from wordpress to Instagram. Whenever he posts a new post with featured image set, it will auto post to Instagram.
I searched on Internet and saw Instagram api doesn't support this. There is no api to post an image via PHP.
Then i searched and got this topic: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18844706/how-to-post-pictures-to-instagram-using-api and then http://lancenewman.me/posting-a-photo-to-instagram-without-a-phone/ but not work.
I try to search more and get this: https://github.com/mgp25/Instagram-API and it work very well. Then i integrate it to my wordpress plugin.
You can download it!
If you need advanced feaure pls ping me.

Happy using!



ChangeLog:
1.0 first version
1.1 fix image ratio issue.

Hello!
I bit modified your plugin to display not only the title, but also excerpt and link:

// caption and strip tags from title for modern themes
$caption = wp_strip_all_tags(get_the_title($ID));
$exrpt = apply_filters('the_excerpt', get_post_field('post_excerpt', $ID));
$caption .= $exrpt;
$caption .= get_permalink($ID);

Hi,

How can i include description or price? (Posting woocommerce product)

Or make each post follow a specific template?
Like
"%Title
-SPACE-
%Description
-SPACE-
%Price - With Free Shipping!"

Great plugin!
