Instagram: post photo via computer

Instagram hasn’t listened to the platform’s tens of millions of users for years. Posting a photo or video was never possible via a computer. This is now possible and it works easily and quickly via the Instagram website.

Here’s how to post an Instagram photo via your desktop:

  1. Surf to Instagram and log in with your details:
  2. Tap the plus icon at the top right;
  3. Drop or select the photos and/or videos you want to post;
  4. Select the size or crop the material;

    Tap ‘next’ in the top right

  5. Apply a filter and use the sliders for additional effects;

    Tap ‘next’ in the top right

  6. Format your post, including emoji and hashtags and tag who you want;
  7. Finally, tap ‘Share’ at the top right.

During the process you can always go back a step if you still want to edit something. Everything is remembered, so you don’t have to work with filters or new text again. It is true that you have fewer options via the computer than via the Instagram app in terms of editing. For example, the number of filters that can be selected is slightly more limited than via your telephone.

On some points, the way of posting via the desktop is nicer. For example, if you post a video, you can choose a cover photo, something that cannot be done via the app. All in all, it is therefore a matter of figuring out which way you prefer to post.
