Tip Tuesday #16: How to post a picture on Instagram directly from your computer using Google Chrome

How to post a picture on Instagram directly from your computer using Google Chrome. Takes 2 seconds

Hello and welcome! I love editing pictures in Photoshop and find this simple lifehack very useful. It takes literally two seconds!

Open Instagram in Google Chrome, go to the ‘Settings‘ menu (top right corner, button that looks like three dots), then click ‘More Tools‘ and ‘Developer Tools

OR simply press Ctrl+Shift+I

Reload the page and the following screen will appear:

Voilà! You now can view Instagram on your computer the way you view it on a smartphone. Once you press the ‘+’ button, you’ll be able to browse your computer and upload it on Instagram.

The circled button is ‘Toggle device toolbar‘ – it’ll allow you to switch between smartphone and computer view OR simply press Ctrl + Shift + M to toggle between them.

Alternative method:

open a new tab in Google Chrome and go to Instagram, press F12 (it’ll take you straight to the Developer Tools page) and then F5 (to reload the page).

I hope you enjoyed this week’s #TipTuesday!

See you in my next post,
