While some want to delete or deactivate their Instagram account, others wanted to be able to post photos from their computer to Instagram. It is now officially possible.
Until now, you had to go through your smartphone or tweak on your PC. As of now, Instagram is rolling out a new option and if you go to your account from a computer, you will see a small message appear near the + symbol: “You can now create and share posts directly from your computer”.

By clicking on the famous symbol, you can then add the photo or video of your choice and follow the classic process of a publication on Instagram. Note that this only affects your feed and not your stories.
More practical for certain uses of Instagram
For experienced photographers using sophisticated cameras, this can be a great opportunity to share their creations more easily. If you are used to doing your photo editing on a computer rather than on a smartphone, this can also save you time when publishing your photos.
Small important detail: posted videos cannot exceed one minute. Beyond that, all you have to do is take advantage of this new Instagram option. But in its DNA, the platform owned by Facebook – if the name of the company does not change – remains very focused around use on smartphones.
