Post To Instagram From Your Web Browser

Instagram claims that their website is "... designed to help people have a fuller experience on Instagram no matter what device or network they are on". That said, you still can't post by default from a browser. If you're a dSLR photographer, or you have PC-hosted images you would like to share, you'll have to (until now, anyhow) email or transfer photos to your mobile phone before posting them.

Update: Posting from a web browser is now core functionality. This hack is entirely redundant.

No Longer Needed: Instagram has introduced its own method of sharing via your browser. This method is no longer required. Preserved because of the reference made in various articles.

Following is a method you may use to post from your desktop - an almost essential method for most businesses. While there's an option for most browsers, we'll deal with just Chrome.

  1. Navigate to Instagram.com.
  2. Right clicks and select "Inspect".
Post To Instagram From Your Web Browser
  1. Click the mobile icon in the developer console.
    Post To Instagram From Your Web Browser

  2. Your browser will now emulate a mobile phone and you will have post options available. You'll have to refresh the page before the mobile buttons (upload etc) will show.

The result:

Post To Instagram From Your Web Browser

Unless you have a touch-screen PC your ability to scale and/or resize images is limited.

There are plenty of tools that emulate the behaviour described above. However, this method doesn't require the installation of plugins or software.
