The best ways to post photos to Instagram from a desktop computer browser

Most internet browsers have a method of allowing you alter the "Individual Agent"-- the thing 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 right into showing you the mobile website. That's just what we're going to do.


On Safari, it's simple. Go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Check the box at the very lower that says, "Show Develop menu in menu bar"

Currently open up a personal surfing window. Head to Develop > User Agent > Safari - iOS 10 - iPhone. Most likely to Instagram.com, log in as well as click the camera switch at the bottom of the screen to upload a picture from your desktop.


In Chrome, most likely to Instagram.com as well as log in. Currently right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet icon (top-left). The page must change to mobile view, where you'll find a camera switch at the end of the display, which lets you publish a photo from your desktop computer.

Lots of Instagrammers-- myself included-- fire images on a dSLR electronic camera and also modify them on their computer before submitting to Instagram. That means having to transfer the completed photo to a phone (via AirDrop or email), which is difficult, at finest.

This workaround cuts that march, making dSLR uploads simpler than ever.
