feed me Instagram! (in RSS form)

Instagram to RSS. Are there any reliable options? Yes, I'm willing to pay.

I really don't like Instagram as an app (I find that it's becoming as ethically loathsome as its parent company facebook). But I love art, and that's where artists are posting these days, so I like to keep track of wayyyyyyyyyy too many Instagram feeds. I was using rss.app to convert my Instagram feeds to RSS feeds, and it was a bit wonky but functional until a few days ago when it stopped working entirely. I've been trying trying to look around for a more serious long-term solution, but haven't yet found anything that's not out of date and/or questionably functional. Does it exist? Are there any RSS readers that have Instagram integration? (I currently use Feed Wrangler and like it, but I'd be willing to switch.)

Further considerations: I am absolutely willing to pay for this, whether it's a service on its own, or a new RSS reader.

No, getting my stream of art from from non-Instagram sources isn't viable for me, if only because it has the largest breadth by far, and lots of the artists I care about use it as their primary (or only) platform.

Because I’m looking at art, any solution that provides low-res or thumbnail images, or requires me to click through to see each post, is not workable. I want a stream of reasonably high-res images from Instagram integrated into my RSS feeds.

Do I have any options?

I was able to get a functional RSS feed from https://queryfeed.net .. but my RSS reader (Inoreader) only provides links the images. Your reader may be better. Either way, it's a start?

I just tried it in feedly, and rss.app's Instagram feed generator thing seems to do what you want.

If you are comfortable with selfhosting then RSS Bridge or RSSBox work perfectly for Instagram - if you are not comfortable with it there are public instances of both services
