Now you can post Instagram updates right from your PC. The below methods would help you out to use Instagram as the way you want. There wouldn’t be any restrictions that you can only upload photos or videos from your Mobile App only.
You can only upload photos to Instagram from your smartphone only, alt-east officially it is true. But There are certain ways by which you can post your favorite photos or videos from your PC. Sometimes it happens that the photo taken out of your smartphone is not up to the mark that you want to photoshop it and then upload it or you have taken photos from your DSLR and it is easier to upload it from your computer. Maybe you are a smartphone guy and you don’t feel the pain but at least that is not the case for me. So I have searched and tried out different methods to upload photos or videos from my pc but failed until I got this two methods. This is really easy and quite fun too. Check them out:
Using Websta for Instagram. It is actually a chrome extension that you can download and use it on your Google Chrome browser. You just need to go to Chrome web store and search for Websta for Instagram or you can click on the below given link and install it. If you are using Opera browser, you can still use this extension.
Check out my post about how to install chrome extensions to Opera if you don’t know how to do that?
Now after you install the extension just click on it and sign in using your Instagram login credentials. After you sign in, you will see the typical mobile Instagram homepage on your browser and at the bottom of the page, there is a camera icon to upload your favorite photos to Instagram like the mobile app you see. and that’s it and you’re good to go.
Using Buffer or Crowdfire. If you don’t know I just like to let you know that Buffer and Crowdfire are the two most popular social media account management app that can help you out to schedule all your social media activities and get more audience/ leads to your story or business.
Now to use Buffer or Crowdfire first, you need to install the Buffer or Crowdfire App on your smartphone and sign in using your login details. Then open buffer.com or crowdfire.com from your browser and sign in. Open the dashboard and create a new post for Instagram. Upload the photo and schedule it or click on the publish now button. Whenever you click or publish the post, a quick notification from the Buffer or Crowdfire App would come to your smartphone and just click on the notification and voila your Instagram post on its way to go.
