Instagram is mainly used on smartphones, but it can also use it in a desktop browser on Windows or Mac. For years that meant just looking at your feed and posts, but it can also be used to upload photos.
In October 2021, Instagram added the long-awaited ability to post to Instagram from the website. You also get almost all of the same filters and editing tools that you can find in the app for iPhone and Android . We’ll see.
First, go to Instagram.com in a web browser like Google Chrome or Safari. Sign in with your Instagram account if you are not already signed in.
Then click the + icon in the upper right corner.
The first thing to do is click “Select from computer” and choose a photo from the file manager.
Here are a couple of options. You can adjust the aspect ratio , zoom in on the photo, or add more photos to create a slideshow. Click “Next” when the photo is ready.
Now you can choose a filter or make other adjustments to the photo, just as you would in the mobile app. Click “Next” when the photo looks good.
Finally, type a title in the text box, add a location if you like, and click “Share.”
That’s all about it! Now you can post photos to your Instagram feed directly from your Windows, Mac, Linux, or Chrome OS computer. This is especially useful for upload photos that you have transferred to your computer, such as from a digital camera.
