how to use Instagram from Android open on certain user and add caption to uploaded image

Instagram for Android is very limited, from what I have seen so far. My scenario is simple: allow the user to edit a picture and when he presses on Send:

Intent share = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);

Then with queryIntentActivities() I search to see if Instagram is installed. If it is I send the path of my image to be uploaded:

 share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_STREAM, Uri.parse("file:///" + path to myfile.png"));
 share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "Sample subject");
 share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TEXT, "Sample text");
 share.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_TITLE, "Sample title");

The result: the image is uploaded using Instagram app (of course if I am logged in), but I can't add an Caption to it. None of the putExtra has any effect. So, is there any way to add a caption as intent parameter ?

And the other question, is it possible to open Instagram app with a certain user name filled in ?
