How to Post Images From Your Computer to Instagram


I was searching for months how to directly upload my (thousands) of photos to Instagram.
It seemed to be impossible. No one knew how to do it, all the "experts" said there is no way - you have to use your smartphone... Until I found an article last week in 
Many thanks to the author! He wrote:

"Posting on Instagram from your phone or computer? If you're using Safari on a Mac, or Google Chrome on a Mac or PC, posting on Instagram from a computer isn't complicated.

On a Mac Computer Using Safari

1. Open the Safari browser, then click the word "Safari" from the taskbar at the top of the screen.

2. Select "Preferences" from the dropdown menu, then hit the "Advanced" tab on the popup window.

Select "Preferences" under "Safari."

3. At the bottom of the Advanced window, click the box beside the words "Show Develop menu in the menu bar."

Make sure you check the bottom option. 

4. Open a new Safari window, and then hit the word "Develop" from the taskbar at the screen's top.

5. On the dropdown menu, hover over "User Agent," then select "Safari – iOS – iPhone." It'll also include the current Safari version number.

Select the "iPhone" option. 

You are now viewing Safari as if you're on a mobile device, and you can upload images or other media right from your computer.

Go to the Instagram website, and you'll see the "+" button at the bottom of the page, which you can click to post. 

However, note that uploading from a computer does have some constraints — you can't post videos or multiple pictures and have limited editing tools. 


On a Mac or PC Using Google Chrome

1. Go to the Instagram website and log into your account.

2. Right-click anywhere on the page, and then click "Inspect" in the right-click menu.

You can open Chrome's Inspection menu by right-clicking. 

3. On the right side of the screen, a window filled with code will appear. At the top of this menu, click "Toggle Device Toolbar" icon — it looks a phone in front of a tablet. Make sure the toolbar at the top of the page says "Responsive."

The icon to change your browser format is small and will be highlighted blue when it's on. 

4. Refresh the page.

5. Close the Inspection window.

Like above, you're now viewing Instagram as if you're on a mobile device. Once you close the Inspection menu, you'll see a "+" button at the bottom of the page,  click on it to post pictures. However, you can't post videos or multiple pictures, or those in .png and you will have limited editing tools. 


From Your Smartphone:

1. Log into your account on the Instagram mobile app.

2. Tap the square at the bottom of the screen with a "+" (plus) symbol inside.

3. Select the photo (or video, or GIF) you wish to post from your phone's library or snap a new image with your smartphone camera. To make a multi-image post – you can use up to 10 pictures in one post – tap the gray circle with an image of layered squares and then tap the images you'd like to use.

4. Hit "Next" at the top of the screen, then select your filter if you wish to use one, and hit "Edit" to make other changes to the way the image's crop, brightness, saturation, and more.

5. Hit "Next" to add text and location, tag people, and pair other platforms – like Facebook or Twitter – to syndicate your post there, too.

6. Hit "Share" to make your post live on Instagram."
