What are some websites like Instagram

Apps / software Upload Instagram photos from your PC - that's how it works


Instagram is primarily designed as a mobile application. You should actually upload content from your smartphone. But that doesn't work for everyone. You may want to edit your photos in a tool like Lightroom first. Or maybe you want to upload photos or videos that you didn't take with your smartphone camera. Or maybe you just don't like typing long captions on your smartphone and you would rather use a real keyboard. You can also post from your computer using the Chrome and Vivaldi browsers.

Post to Instagram using Google Chrome

When you open the Instagram website in your computer's web browser, you will get a simplified version of the website. It allows you to do a few things, like commenting on photos, but it doesn't include a way to post new ones. Some newer browsers, including Google Chrome, can display the Instagram website as if you were accessing it on a mobile device - which also makes the function for creating new posts available.
