How to upload photos to Instagram from a desktop browser

Many internet browsers have a means of letting you change the "Customer Agent"-- the thing that tells a website what type of device you're on. So, even when you're on a laptop computer or desktop computer, you can trick a site like Instagram right into revealing you the mobile site. That's exactly what we're going to do.


On Safari, it's simple. Go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Check the box at the really lower that claims, "Show Develop menu in menu bar"

Currently open up a private searching window. Head to Develop > User Agent > Safari - iOS 10 - iPhone. Go to, log in and also click the camera button below the screen to upload a picture from your desktop.


In Chrome, go to as well as log in. Currently right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet symbol (top-left). The web page ought to switch to mobile view, where you'll find a camera button at the end of the display, which allows you publish an image from your desktop.

This workaround cuts that step out, making dSLR uploads simpler than ever.
