It sounds obvious, but in some circumstances, Instagram may not have the legal right to sell your pictures so long as they are posted within this Terms of Service or Content Usage Agreement.
Can Instagram remove my pictures?
Instagram may remove photos you post, if any, from Instagram if:
a) your posting is in breach of the Terms of Service, or it is reported to us from a legal source that you are in breach; b) your posting is libelous, defamatory, threatening, or pornographic, and if we can’t find another way of getting it posted.; c) we have reason to suspect that the user’s photograph or description is offensive or dangerous. (For example, if that user is in possession of a knife, knife is more likely to be offensive than a bicycle.) (Or if you have been convicted of a crime such as domestic violence or sexual assault involving a knife, or if your description indicates such possession of the product.) or d) you’ve already removed photos from a particular Instagram account for copyright infringement.
