Upload Instagram Photo From Computer
How to post images to Instagram from a desktop internet browser
A lot of browsers have a way of allowing you transform the "User Agent"-- the thing that informs a web site what kind of gadget you're on. So, even when you're on a laptop computer or desktop computer, you can trick a web site like Instagram right into revealing you the mobile site. That's what we're going to do.
On Safari, it's simple. Go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Check the box at the very bottom that claims, "Show Develop menu in menu bar"
Currently open up an exclusive surfing home window. Visit Develop > User Agent > Safari - iOS 10 - iPhone. Go to Instagram.com, sign in as well as click the camera switch at the end of the screen to publish an image from your desktop.
In Chrome, go to Instagram.com as well as sign in. Currently right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet icon (top-left). The page must switch over to mobile view, where you'll locate a camera switch at the bottom of the screen, which lets you publish an image from your desktop.
Lots of Instagrammers-- myself included-- shoot images on a dSLR video camera and modify them on their computer system before submitting to Instagram. That means having to move the finished image to a phone (through AirDrop or email), which is cumbersome, at finest.
This workaround cuts that march, making dSLR uploads much easier than ever.
