Instagram Upload from a Mac Desktop

Instagram Upload Workaround

Are you frustrated trying to make an Instagram upload happen from your Mac desktop? After much frustration, I’ve finally figured it out.

Include your Android

Instagram was created with mobile devices in mind. People would take photos with their smartphone & share them on Instagram. As of this writing, Instagram does not have an app for uploading from a desktop.

Start by emailing your photo or animated GIF from your desktop to your, say, Gmail address. Open it on your smartphone.

Open Google Chrome & search for “instagram android apps google play”.


just email the photo you want to share on Instagram to yourself, then access that email on your mobile phone and fire up Instagram.
