Instagram oddities

Is it normal that a photo on my mobile duplicates when I post it on Instagram?

Upon logging in to Instagram on my phone, I select the icon to add a picture, then select the picture from my photo album that I want to upload. When checking my photo album afterwards, the photo is in it twice: once with the original time and date the picture was made, and once with the time and date of the moment it was published on Instagram.

Also, in the margins of that issue: when I swipe right the button to also publish the picture and story on FB, the FB app on my phone opens and upon logging in I get the question whether I want to allow Instagram connecting with my Facebook. I give permission for that, but then I get a small popup saying Instagram has stopped. This means that I have to return to the Instagram app, re-choose the picture to upload + type the "story", and usually it publishes (on Instagram and FB if I select that option) upon that second attempt. Why it doesn't work at first attempt is a mystery to me.

As to the first question I am guessing you have your phone set to save your Instagram photos to your phone like this: https://help.instagram.com/462167363826150

Interesting. Thanks for the link. I can definitely say though I didn't set my phone to anything when it comes to Instagram, I installed the app and started experimenting but I never deliberately chose to save or not save pictures a second time on my mobile. If this is the cause, then it must be a setting that was default after installing the app.

It would make sense if you could make pics directly through Instagram, in that case it'd make sense to also have them saved in your mobile's photo album. But I don't know if you can make pics directly through the app. So far I photographed first, then signed in to Instagram and selected to upload the picture from the photo album (upon which the pic is saved in the album a second time)
