The feature Geo-tagging enables you to add geographical information to your photos and videos. You have to enable this feature in your Instagram account. If it is enabled, only then you would be able to add location to your photos.
If you are using an iPhone, that would be more convenient because you just need to enable this feature and whenever you capture pictures, it will automatically add location to them. Once you enable it, you do not need to add a location manually in every photo or video you are going to share on Instagram. For iPhone, you should go to “Settings”. Here you will find a category “Privacy” where you will see an option “Location Services”. Turn this option “ON” to enjoy Geo-tagging feature.
