In this post, we will talk about how to post on Instagram from PC or Mac with Instagram Web. Since the time, I started using Instagram, I always thought what if I can do Instagram post from PC. But, unfortunately this feature was not there on the Instagram Desktop APp or Instagram Web. So, later on many third-party services came into the rescue like SproutSocial, Buffer, etc. which allowed us to schedule and post on Instagram without using our phone. However, just like me I think every user of Instagram might have felt this craving of being able to upload photo and videos to Instagram from there PC. This can be because of various reasons like photos and videos might be more easily accessible via desktop, large interface screen, and so on.
Earlier the Instagram Web version allowed you to send and receive messages, like and comment on posts, etc. But, it didn’t had the option to post on Instagram from PC. But the wait is over now, Instagram Web now has the option to post photos and videos from Instagram Web. That means you can now upload to Instagram from your Windows PC or Mac.

Some people might find this feature okay, but to be honest I am very excited by seeing this feature. Most of the time, I use my laptop for storing photos and videos, and transferring them multiple times for posting on Instagram was quite irritating. Not anymore, as I can now easily post on Instagram from PC or Mac.
