How to Post Images to Instagram from a Computer

We all know Instagram is great for sharing your photography. But does it have to be so inconvenient to post photos NOT taken with your phone? Not anymore! In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to post images to Instagram from a computer. No longer will you have to email the photos to yourself, upload them to cloud storage, or use an extra app to make it happen!

    Does it matter what kind of computer you have on this instagram tutorial. I have an iMac and I don’t have google chrome, so I didn’t see any of the things you pointed out. I hate to download google chrome because I did it on a previous computer and it messed everything up. So I wonder if it’s necessary for this. Thanks.

      Great question! I use Google Chrome on my iMac, but if you prefer Safari you can do it with that as well. Here’s how:

      At the top of your browser, go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced and then check the box that says “Show Develop Menu in Menu Bar”. You should now be able to see the “Develop” option at the top of your screen. Select Develop > User Agent > Safari iOS 11.0 – iPhone.

      Once you do this, you should then see the little plus sign at the bottom of your browser window where you can upload your photos. 🙂 I hope that helps!
