How to post on Instagram from pc

Do you love posting pictures on social media? Can hear you. The voice is so loud. Who doesn’t love to post pictures? Pictures convey a message and with which your friends will get to know all your important events. Posting pictures have become easier and more common with mobiles. Posting pictures are compatible both with the mobiles and from desktops. Yes, you can post your pictures on all social media platforms through your desktops. But the one that is on hold in this process is Instagram. Instagram doesn’t have any special method to post pictures. It doesn’t allow you to post from your pc.

If you are social media marketer and it is very important to keep your social media pages updated. For a good quality picture, we prefer DSLR captures. This is such a hell of a ride again. You need to transfer your files from the camera to the pc. From pc to google drive. Finally, you need to download the desired image to your phone and then post on Instagram. Isn’t this a dehydrating process.

Every problem has a solution. Even though it doesn’t allow, many tech-savvy have found a way to still post through PC or Mac.
