How to upload images to Instagram from PC or Mac

How To Post Pictures and Video on Instagram from your PC

Instagram has been focusing much more on the APP side than the web browser side. Try logging in via your PC and see what you can do in a web browser, almost nothing.

That’s an issue because many of the images we upload and use are formatted and stored on our PC. When you have multiple clients, its tough to keep all the images ready on your phone, the PC is the natural place to store these images and video.

The issue is that Instagram does not want you to upload via a PC. They want you on your phone and they have made it nearly impossible to upload images via PC. The PC market belongs to Google and Microsoft and Facebook (who owns Instagram) is trying to lock everyone into their ecosystem. It makes business sense, but those of us that use Instagram all day long need to be able to use our computers to access, post and market for our clients.

Sorry for blabbering. Here is how you can upload your images to Instagram from your PC:

  1. Go to Instagram.com and logon.
  2. Hit F12 on your PC which opens some webmaster tools
  3. There is a little tablet button in the top left of the RIGHT side panel. Click that to make it blue.
  4. Then (and this is important) click F5 to refesh the page. This will send Instagram a request for the mobile version of the site. You should then see the camera icon on the left.

Hopefully this helps. Please keep 425 Media in mind for your restaurant, winery, coffee shop, brewery, pub, taco truck or really any small business marketing needs.
