Dedicated to all Instagram users!!!
You’re using your smartphone, taking pictures of yourself, your pet, your travel experience, food you’re eating. But smartphone has run out of storage and you’ve copied many great images to your PC. Or you are a DSLR/mirrorless camera shooter and sending all the gigs of images to your smartphone is not comfortable for you? Is there an easy way to upload photos to your Instagram page using your computer / PC?
And the answer is… YES, you can do it.
Originally, Instagram was designed as a mobile only app, with the only possibility for PC users to view images, but with no upload. But there is a small lifehack allowing you to upload your beloved photos from PC directly to your Instagram page.
No software installation or other methods are needed. Just a browser, with some Developer tools options.
I’ll use Google Chrome browser, but it also will work on other browsers with Dev options.
Open your browser and type in your Insta url.
Open Settings menu of your browser and find Developer tools option. Press it.
Afterwards go to Toggle device toolbar (top left corner of a console window) and press it.
A panel will appear with different screen sized (but we won’t need them).
Reload the page and enjoy the upload!
Does the interface look familiar?
The only limitation this method has, is the unavailability to upload videos. It works only for photos.
If you know any other methods how we can upload images or videos to Instagram from a PC, please tell us about them in comments.
