Now about this python module:

If you have a instagram account then just log in into instagram developer website.
Then fill the issue about your website the phone mumber and what do you want to build for your application check your agreement with Instagram.
Now you need to use Register Your Application and finally on Register a New Client.
About Register Your Application you need to fill the with data for your application ( basic info: Description, Company Name, Website URL, Contact email).
Select the tab Security and disable the Disable implicit OAuth.

About the token authorizations:

Is given to you with this words:

basic – to read a user’s profile info and media

or needs additional permission:

public_content – to read any public profile info and media on a user’s behalf
follower_list – to read the list of followers and followed-by users
comments – to post and delete comments on a user’s behalf
relationships – to follow and unfollow accounts on a user’s behalf
likes – to like and unlike media on a user’s behalf
The next step is to get access token then you need to add http://localhost link into Security tag from Manage Client.
Use this url to get the access token by paste it into your web browser.[CLIENT_ID_HERE]&redirect_uri=http://localhost&response_type=token&scope=public_content
Into the browser you will see one page with one button for Authorizing access.
Press this button and into your browser address bar you will get the access token like:
A simple python script to test it.
from time import sleep
from instagram.client import InstagramAPI

redirect_uri= "http://xxxxx"

api = InstagramAPI(client_id=client_id, client_secret=client_secret)
print dir(api)
print api.api_name
To deal with python and instagram is not very easy for me.
The main reason come from errors and the instagram api development way.
Some simple tasks are very hard to do.
