Upload Pictures From Computer To Instagram
Ways to post pictures to Instagram from a desktop computer internet browser
Many web browsers have a way of allowing you change the "User Representative"-- things that tells a site what kind of device you get on. So, also when you're on a laptop or desktop, you could deceive a site like Instagram into revealing you the mobile website. That's just what we're going to do.
On Safari, it's very easy. Go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Check the box at the extremely bottom that states, "Show Develop menu in menu bar"
Currently open a personal browsing window. Go to Develop > User Agent > Safari - iOS 10 - iPhone. Most likely to Instagram.com, log in and click the camera switch at the end of the display to publish a photo from your desktop computer.
In Chrome, go to Instagram.com and log in. Now right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet icon (top-left). The web page should switch over to mobile view, where you'll find a camera switch below the screen, which lets you upload a photo from your desktop computer.
Numerous Instagrammers-- myself consisted of-- shoot pictures on a dSLR camera as well as edit them on their computer system before submitting to Instagram. That means needing to transfer the finished photo to a phone (via AirDrop or email), which is troublesome, at best.
This workaround reduces that march, making dSLR uploads easier than ever before.
