One of the frustrating things about using Instagram is being confined to using a mobile device to upload Instagram photos. Fortunately, there’s a way to upload instagram photos from computers that are not mobile devices or tablets such as from a desktop or a laptop.
While you’ve probably been relying on Dropbox to move photos to your mobile device from your computer, if you take a lot of photos, you’ll need enough storage to store all of your photos within Dropbox.
The great thing is that while Instagram is primarily used from mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, you can upload Instagram photos from computers if you like.
To upload Instagram photos from your computer is really easy, just follow the instructions listed below.
Note: you can only upload one photo at a time using these instructions.
