We all love Instagram and most of us have the app installed on our various iOS and Android devices for easy access. PC users have to use the mobile version of Instagram where you can do almost everything. Everything except uploading pictures to Instagram from your PC. So in this article, we will be helping understand how to upload pictures to Instagram from PC.
Unlike the Android and iOS that have an app on their respective stores to access Instagram. There is no dedicated Instagram app for MAC and Windows OS which I'm hoping Instagram would attend to in the nearest future. This has left PC users scrambling for other means to be able to post or upload their pictures and videos on the Instagram platform.
There are probably a lot of ways to upload photos and videos to Instagram. But one of the most popular and easiest ways is by using a software called BlueStacks App Player. The BlueStacks App is the app we will be using in this tutorial.
For those that do not know what the BlueStacks App Player is, I'll explain. BlueStacks App Player is a software that allows android app run on your PC. Futhermore, it allows all android app run seamlessly through it on your PC. With the BlueStacks App Player, you can download and run almost any android app, including the games.
Now that we know what it does, lets get down to how to download the app, install it and use it to upload pictures to Instagram from PC.
