How to Post Images to Instagram from a Computer

It’s crazy—Instagram has no provisions for posting images from a computer, only from a smart phone or similar.

Since my workflow always involve raw format with my regular cameras that’s a non-starter. As for my iPhone, I want to embed my copyright and so on, and tweak the image to my liking. So that means downloading and then deleting the images from the phone—so a phone for use with Instagram is useless to me.

I am sure there are other workarounds, like Lightroom plugins. But there are so many cases of having an existing image and being on a regular computer, that this approach is ideal, and very simple to do.

Update: reader Andrew H recommends Flume.

How to use Instagram from a computer

1. Enable the Develop menu in Safari as shown.

2. Fool into thinking your computer is an iOS device.

1. Create a new private window (File => New Private Window).

2. Change the User Agent to iOS (Develop => User Agent => Safari—iOS...)

3. Go to and login.

4. Click the plus symbol at page bottom. A file open dialog will appear; choose the image and proceed.
