How you can upload photos to Instagram from a desktop web browser

Most browsers have a means of allowing you alter the "Individual Agent"-- the important things that tells a web site what sort of gadget you get on. So, even when you get on a laptop or desktop, you could fool a web site like Instagram into revealing you the mobile website. That's exactly what we're going to do.


On Safari, it's easy. Most likely to Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Check the box at the very lower that claims, "Show Develop menu in menu bar"

Now open a personal searching window. Go to Develop > User Agent > Safari - iOS 10 - iPhone. Most likely to, log in and also click the camera button below the screen to post a picture from your desktop.


In Chrome, most likely to and also log in. Now right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet symbol (top-left). The web page should change to mobile view, where you'll locate a camera button at the bottom of the screen, which lets you post an image from your desktop computer.

Many Instagrammers-- myself included-- shoot images on a dSLR camera and also modify them on their computer system before posting to Instagram. That means needing to move the completed picture to a phone (via AirDrop or email), which is troublesome, at best.
