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.

    I heard this can lead to issues on your Instagram account such as the disabling of the hashtag feature, so that photos don’t show up on pages. Has anyone experienced this issue?

      @8c8a98d40826187037da9244e9bf8030:disqus, this shouldn’t cause issues. It’s tying in to Instagram through their API.

      Yes, this happened to me. I don’t know how to get my hash tags to work anymore!

    Best way to upload from pc to instagram is through google drive. Take pictures wit your camera, put them on pc, upload them to google drive, view them on the drive app for your mobile then share them to instagram. The only downside is that the transfer from camera to instagram can take a while if you have a ton of photos. Your google drive storage limit is on 15 gb too so that could cause problems.
