How to Post to Instagram From Your PC or Mac!


Today I’m going to show you how to upload
photos to Instagram from your computer and you can do this on a laptop or a desktop or
PC or a Mac and you don’t have to upload your photos or airdrop them to your phone – you
can do it right there from your computer. Let’s get to it! So what you want to do is go to your Google
Chrome browser and I’m starting off by just going to the Google homepage. And then, what you want to do, to go into
Mobile View, is go up to your View menu, Developer, Developer Tools. And this is typically used by web developers
and web designers to look at the coding of the page, to look at the style sheets. I used it a lot in the past when I used to
do a lot of web design work. So, what you can do then is go up to this
icon right here, and this is the Toggle Device toolbar which will show you the mobile view
of the page. So, I’m going to go here and you can see now
that we have the mobile view of the Google homepage. So then I’m going to go to my Instagram page
here at @TomWindeknecht. And here you can see it looks just like as
if I was on my phone. I can add a photo, I can search, I can comment,
I can like, I can do all of the things, pretty much all of the things that I can do on my
mobile device – on my phone. So, to go ahead and add a photo, I would just
go ahead and, like I normally would, click the plus sign here. I can choose a photo. So, I’m just going to choose my profile photo
just for this example (chuckles). I can size it and crop it, just like I normally
would. I can even rotate it. Go next. I can write my caption. “Hey guys!” And, go ahead and Share. And there it is. Just like that. Super easy! Alright, so that’s it. It’s really easy to do to upload photos to
Instagram from your computer. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram at
@TomWindeknecht. You can also subscribe to my channel and turn
on the little bell to get notifications of my next post and video that’s coming up. I can’t wait to do it! Talk to you guys soon. Thanks!

  1. This did not work for me. I was able to toggle to the device screen but I did not get the camera at the bottom. BOO!!!

  2. Brilliant thank you. I've been trying to find a way to do this for ages! Now all I have to do is make sure all my photos are jpeg instead png.

  3. Is there any way to post to a "business" account attached to your personal account, and can you post multiple photos?

  4. Hi, firstly thank you for this. It worked perfectly the first time but now won't allow me to add a description Have you ever had this problem and if so, how did you remedy it?

  5. Why if I want to edit my Instagram posts by adding a new hashtag. There's no 'edit' feature whenever I click the three dots.

  6. Awesome. Thank you! very helpful and I don't have to pay for another app to be able to upload photos on Instagram.
