How you can upload pictures to Instagram from a desktop computer web browser

A lot of internet browsers have a means of allowing you change the "User Agent"-- the important things that tells an internet site what kind of gadget you're on. So, even when you get on a laptop computer or desktop computer, you can deceive a website like Instagram right into showing you the mobile website. That's just what we're going to do.


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

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


In Chrome, go to Instagram.com and sign in. Currently right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet symbol (top-left). The page must switch over to mobile view, where you'll discover a camera button below the screen, which allows you post an image from your desktop.

Several Instagrammers-- myself included-- shoot images on a dSLR electronic camera as well as modify them on their computer prior to posting to Instagram. That means having to move the finished picture to a phone (via AirDrop or email), which is cumbersome, at ideal.

This workaround cuts that march, making dSLR uploads much easier than ever before.
