It appears that as of the latest update to the Instagram app (at least on Android) the export from Dropbox ability has been removed. This took place on or about May 7th 2018. Only way to export to Instagram now is to save the image to your device from within the Dropbox app and then upload the image to Instagram from within the Instagram app. Extra steps I know.

You can tap on the three ...'s on the iOS version and 'export' to instagram if you have it installed.

You cannot do it via the website, however.

What device are you using and are you doing that within the Dropbox official apps?
