To work with Creator Studio, you need to switch your Instagram account to professional (author's profile or business account). To do this, go to the Instagram Mobile Application Settings, select Account → "Switch to Professional Account" and follow the prompts. The procedure will take you a couple of minutes. If you don't like something, you can return to the usual type of account at any time.

3. How to add a photo or video in Instagram from a computer using an Android emulator for PC
Emulators are special programs that allow you to work with any Android applications directly on your computer. By running the Instagram's official mobile client, you can easily publish Stories and posts. Android device for this will not need.
Install any free emulator from the selection of Lifehaker for Windows, Linux and MacOS. In the example in the screenshot you can see the window with the NoxPlayer interface.
Run the emulator and log in to the Google Play application store by clicking on the appropriate icon. Connect your old or create a new Google account to be able to download Android programs.
Right in the emulator, download Instagram from Google Play and log in to your profile. After that, you can publish video and pictures from the computer as if you use social network on your smartphone.
Share a photo in Instagram through a smartphone - 5 seconds. Share content through a computer - an unreal task. But it would be convenient: I processed a snapshot or video and immediately from the computer uploaded to the application. It turns out that downloading photos and video in Instagram from the computer has long been possible. We tell how.
Instagram was created as a mobile application, but gradually introduced on Wednesday desktop solutions. There is already an official application that we can find in Microsoft Store. It copies the browser application, it is possible to add a video through "IGTV", but the photo is not added. Also in the app store you can find separate programs to add a photo, but they are paid and not always stable. We have a better decision.
Modern browsers have a great functionality, allowing you to easily and simply place publications without resorting to third-party services.
For those who are used to working in multitasking mode, there is a very convenient option. We will need a Vivaldi browser with its panel adding tool.
Click on the "Add webpacker" icon and insert the link to the Instagram site. After entering the account in the panel column there will be a familiar application icon, as well as a download button.
Thanks to this interface, you can view the event tape, add photos and work in parallel with multiple open tabs.
For this method, we will need to go to the browser and go to the Instagram site. We enter your account by clicking right-clicking on any free page area, select the drop-down menu " View code "
On the right side of the screen, a window with the source code of our page will appear. It can also be called a CRTL + SHIFT + I key combination. Next, click on the tablet / smartphone icon and select the device's usual interface for us. We update the page. At the bottom of the screen will appear a button to add a file.
This method is relevant not only for the considered Google Chrome, but also for Microsoft EDGE, Opera and Yandex.
To download the video, we need to log in to the account using the browser, the standard way without emulation. Next, by clicking on the Profile tab, we will see the "IGTV" button.
Click on the "Download" button and perform the necessary steps to publish.
Extension for browser
A similar variant described above, but with a little different by execution. We will need to set the expansion into the Chrome browser.
After installation, activate the expansion and enter the account.
Our application will be displayed in a separate window, simulating the mobile device screen.
Using emulators applications
To add photo / video, you can use the individual applying emulator. The meaning of his work in creating a copy of the equipment and its program code, which allows you to run mobile applications on a personal computer.
NOX App Player.
Download and install the program, we need a Gmail account. You can download Instagram using a separate file APK by adding it a special button with the right pane. Or go to the App Center page and add an application from Google Play.
After installing Instagram, an application icon will appear. Go to your account. The interface familiar to the mobile device.
The next step we need to configure the path to add files. To do this, click on the gear icon in the main window, in the settings tab, we put a tick at the Ruth item.
The application will request a reboot, after restarting, we can only drag the desired files in the gallery window.
This emulator can be installed both on Windows and on the Mac OS system.
BlueStacks - another popular Android emulator for Windows and Mac OS. The principle of operation is similar to the NOx emulator discussed earlier. By installing the program, we need to download Instagram from Google Play, after which the application icon will appear in the main window.
Select files for download and drag them into the gallery window, then perform steps to publish.
Using SMM services
We will not bypass the party and business owners associated with the business. Whether it is a blogger or shop, posting posts is important at certain intervals when subscribers are most high. This will help us online services with the possibility of postponed posting photos / video.
This service allows you to download posts into several accounts at the same time, lay out posts with a specified time and has a convenient tool. By registering on the service page, we need to tie an instagram account. To do this, click on the "Account" button on the left side of the screen and in the opening tab you connect it.
Next, go to the "Posts - Plan Schedule" tab and add the necessary file from the repository.
We specify all the parameters you need for publications and click "OK".
In this way, you can publish a video / photo in several of your social networks without spending a lot of time. This service has a free trial period, and a lot of effort will be needed to quickly understand the interface.
We register on the page and add an account. The interface is minimalistic, for beginners there is a small trial period.
After completing these steps, a window with a profile appears before us. The number of buttons is minimal, it is possible to view the subscription tape and its publications.
You can add several publications at once, as well as edit the displayed post area. At the final stage, it is possible to task the publication, descriptions and geolocation time.
Also on the service page, you can find the "Direct" tabs for communication and "analyst", which in turn allows you to monitor the activity and growth of subscribers, saving a lot of time.
Update: September 3, 2020
A long time ago Instagram decided to give users the opportunity to upload and publish photos from a PC. Then the news quickly separated over the network, but at the same time the cherished button with the image of the camera from most did not appear. And the reason for the truth is not clear, many say that the update will appear in us after a while.
We decided not to wait and share several ways to upload photos in instagram from a computer. Download options for both third-party programs and without programs are available.
Method 1: Manual method through a browser
Here is the instruction for the Google Chrome browser, in other browsers everything is done in the same way.
- Log in in the desktop version of Instagram.
- Press F12.
- Next, click on the Toggle Device Toolbar - the button located at the top of the panel (seen in the screenshot). The Instagram page will go into your usual mobile viewing mode, and the button (Toggle Device Toolbar) itself will be highlighted in blue.
- If you are all done correctly, but the cherished button download photo does not appear, just reboot the page by clicking on the F5 key.
- Click on the icon and choose for download any photo from PC. It remains only to choose a photo and post it.
To use all Instagram functions unfortunately will not work. In the PC version there is no possibility to edit the photo, adjust the filters, plus, you can not download the video. Otherwise, everything works exactly as in the mobile version.
Method 2: Services for promotion Instagram accounts
Most of the modern services to promote instagram allows you to download content, watch messages in Direct and make many other activities. All of them are paid, but you kill two hares in one dollar: and promote the account and post the content :)
Popular Tooligram 2.0 is one of the most functional services. Here is the possibility of publishing posts, Stories by timer, with filters.
In addition, the service can collect the target audience. To fulfill mass subscriptions, unsubsions and huskies, receive comments from live accounts. In response, users subscribe, growing the number of activities in your profile.
Method 3: Publication Planning via SMMPLANNER
This method is very convenient for regular installation instagram and allows you to upload posts, stories and video from a computer. 100 publications per month can be done free! Cloud service, nothing needs to be installed. We register and start working. Of course, you will spend 10-20 minutes to familiarize yourself with the functionality, but this time will reappear.
In smmplanner you can:
- Edit and apply filters on the photo when loading
- At the same time, post the content in several social networks or accounts
- Set the schedule and schedule posts for many days ahead
- Set the timer to remove content (suitable for promotional posts)
You need to register with the SMMPLANNER service, attach your Instagram account and add publications through the "Posts" section. Detailed instructions and promotion is located in this SMMPLANNER review.
P.S. In my opinion this is the only way to upload Stories in instagram from a computer.
Method 4: Special Services
On the wave of problems with the lack of ability to add photos from a computer in Instagram, several specialized programs and services appeared. I recommend method 2 with SMMPLANNER, as the menu items are functional and convenient to work.
Instmsk - Russian-language online service. We register and you can work. Very unpleasant interface, service has not been updated for a long time. Of the advantages: you can massively upload photos, video.
Gramblr. (stopped his work) - A program that is installed on your computer (is on Mac and Windows) and allows you to download photos in instagram. Version in english. Available editing and overlay filters, no more special features.
An interesting option is the extension "Desktop for Instagram", which is added to Google Chrome.
Bonus way: Content Manager
You can instruct all the work on how to fill your instagram account of the Content Manager. It will pick up photos, combine a single style ribbon and write posts. Previously, it can be coordinated to the technical task and discuss all the nuances.
Where to find a content manager to publish posts?
- Gocontent - Special service to work with content managers.
- Freelance.ru, such as freelance.ru or fl.ru. Potter
- Search among REDSMM graduates is a school that is engaged in training administrators Instagram. You can start here, at the end of the site there are contact telegrams to search for an admin.
It is worth remembering that instagram is first of all this application for photos. The social network policy in this is that it is possible to place content and only you need from mobile devices. In order to make publications on a computer, you need to "make thinking" instagram that our computer is a mobile gadget, this will be discussed in the article.
Mobile device emulation in the browser
Add photo to instagram from a computer or laptop, attach Stories and unloaded the created video in the tape allowing web browsers: Yandex.Browser, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera. For some, it is enough to download the extension, while others are allowed to use special widgets and buttons to call the development menu.
About how to install instagram on a computer read in the article
Upload photos to instagram using Vivaldi browser
While competitors offer to choose extensions and plugins and experiment with the "View code" tool call to access Instagram, Vivaldi browser developers diligently develop the "side panel" decorated in the form of a widget occupying the left part of the interface.
Messengers and translators, social networking ribbons and frequently visited resources are added there. Instagram in the side panel is fully fully: allows you to add a video, lay out a photo, look into the Direct or in the "recommended", and write a couple of new comments under the posts of friends in the ribbon.
No settings and additional actions: just call the panel, and after (left) click on the Instagram icon.
Services for quick dialing subscribers
LIKEINSTA - the service allows you to quickly turn live subscribers for a small fee.
ZenGram is a powerful tool for promoting an instagram account, puts like, watching Storsis, sends welcome messages. Promocode Instaservis_Zeng.
Jesica Bot - Try a secure innovative application to promote instagram account
F12 key in browsers
The developer mode in browsers (Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Opera, Mozilla Firefox) allows you to emulate a mobile device in the browser and display buttons for downloading photos. By default, the developer mode is called using the F12 key or through the "View Code" key in the context menu when clicking on the right mouse page.
Regardless of the selected action scenario in the interface that appears, you must immediately contact the quick access panel from above.
The page design will be changed (to adjust the width and height of the interface will help special templates adapted to Apple and Samsung technique), but add a new Instagram publication will not be allowed. First you need to click on F5 to update the social network state.
After rebooting at the bottom of the web page there will be a quick access panel with a search, a plus card icon and a section with likes, and at the same time with the results of recent activity.
Now to download the video to or publish the photo Instagram, you can use the usual buttons.
Extension for the USER-Agent Switcher for Chrome browser
Specialists from Google diligently support beginner developers, testers and enthusiasts. And the User-Agent Switcher plugin is superfluous: after adding a new tool in Chrome, access to the emulation of the Android operating system will appear and the ability to launch mobile exclusives directly in the browser.
Instagram is also supported, but only partially: publish the photo expansion will be allowed, but with the rest there will be problems - the same Stories will not be published due to problems with "incorrectly selected screen orientation." And it is impossible to choose the appropriate option for unknown reasons.
Plugins for browsers
Post photos and videos in the ribbon in browsers allow even the developer panel. But due to the confusing procedure, sometimes it is sometimes faster to use special plugins that add the ability to interact with Instagram in full-length mode and almost without restrictions.
Extension Web Instagram
Notorly plugin for Google Chrome Web Instagram, activating a tab with a web version of the Instagram Social Network in the browser. Offers posting posts, download Stories, communicate with subscribers in Direct, exchange comments and follow the activity of friends. Compared to versions for iOS and Android offers a number of innovations, like a dark theme and buttons to load content from the network to the hard disk.
The only lack of expansion is a periodically arising message about the problems with the support of equipment. It is solved by the standard CHROME reboot.
Instagram PC Lite.
The instagram PC Lite extension is designed specifically for the Mozilla Firefox browser and is largely like a competitor - "Web Instagram". The functionality is the same - to upload photos or videos, to watch the tape, leave comments, use the built-in editor to publish IGTV-content and Stories.
There are few problems with extension, but the interface is too "wide" and hardly placed in the browser interface due to which it is often necessary to move on the quick access panel from top to bottom and right to left.
Although the developers have transferred the Opera browser on the Blink engine used in Chrome and the same Microsoft Edge, with support for thematic extensions from the Owner's official store, problems still have - half tools do not start, and the second turns interaction with Instagram in torture due to the strange interface.
But in Opera, like Vivaldi, allowing to circumvent restrictions and use the sidebar. Instagram functionality will remain complete, and the interface is adapted to the mobile OS, and so to post a photo in instagram through the computer using the operator's browser, even get used to the additional buttons.
Download the opera browser, install it on your laptop or computer and start making publications, and even upload stories with music.
Upload video to instagram through the computer allow plugins for the browser and the developers panel. But not everywhere else is the full functionality Instagram, and sometimes there are problems with the performance and display of some buttons. An alternative to browsers - emulators that are enough to download on a computer and place photos in instagram can be as on the usual smartphone.
The productive emulator of the Android operating system, focused mainly on providing access to mobile exclusives and blockbusters.
The LDPlayer emulator is performed, it provides the ability to choose an Android version for emulation, supports multi-solo mode and authorization via Google account (a pair of moments and information is automatically synchronized).

There will be no problem with the preparation of new materials, nor with the addition of description, hashtegov and the addition of labels on friends or subscribers. The problem of BlueStacks is only a strong load on the PC: a powerful central processor and a lot of RAM will be required.
NOX App Player - a universal tool for those who will not wait to look into the world of the mobile gaming industry, and at the same time to appreciate the contribution of developers to customers of social networks (including Instagram) and graphic editors.

The social network officially does not support postponed posting technology and does not propose in the settings, nor in the news feed distribute Content for days and hours. Enhance Instagram features to be used using thematic planners, like SMMPLANNER or Creator Studio from Facebook. After the authorization has passed, a chance will have a chance to choose when and in what format add photos and videos, what tags attach and whether to limit the viewing optional privacy parameters. Listed functions for the most part are available even without issuing subscriptions and make payments.
How many photos can be added to instagram per day
Instagram's social network rules formally do not limit the creative portions of users and do not prohibit publish hundreds of photos and videos daily. But from the point of view of promotion and expanding information coverage, excessive activity will only bring harm.
The problems will arise with a loyal audience, hardly able to withstand the continuous stream of content, and with the social network algorithms: Instagram will try to protect the news feed and hobs extra publications from potential spectators, and therefore the forces spent will remain unnoticed (the famous "shadow bank").
Rare case - program restrictions imposed on access to some functions. When trying to put a record of social activity sometimes a message appears: "The action is blocked, try later."
Therefore, experts (and bloggers) recommend not exceeding a reasonable bar at 5-10 posts per hour and at 30-50 per day. Increasing additional volumes is recommended only if the statistics of the products, likes and comments change in a positive side, and not standing still.

Return sources The original size is easy: it suffices to use a special button located on the quick access panel of the embedded graphic editor. Photos will be pulled out and appear in the ribbon in its original form.
Total: Briefly about the main
Despite the restrictions put forward by Instagram developers to users visiting the social network not from mobile operating systems, and from the computer, to lead the ribbon, view the Direct and communicate in the comments are quite real and without smartphones with tablets at hand.
It is necessary to deal with what social tool to use.
- Emulators - are flexibly configured, productive and offer similar to mobile operating systems. User experience, but strongly load the system and sometimes it is not free to load on netbooks due to high system requirements;
- Plugins - the browser plugins sometimes incorrectly display the content and "travel" throughout the web page, which accounts for a long time to search for suitable buttons on the screen;
- Planners - Scheduler services, if not to take into Creator Studio, costs too expensive - subscription for 450, 600 or even 1000 rubles hardly need to unload a couple of photos to the network for the week;
- Programs - The programs are sometimes not supported by some versions of operating systems, but do not require unnecessary settings - it is enough to log in enough.

Two points to the note:

Method 3: Android emulator
Android emulator - This is a program for a computer (laptop) that simulates the work of the smartphone. In fact, you get a phone with the Android system on your PC and can use all applications and games.
This means that you can install a full version of Instagram and use it as well as on the phone. Including add photos from a computer.
How to add a photo in instagram from a computer via emulator
To enjoy it in the emulator, you first need to install the NoxPlayer on the computer. Then open it and add an Instagram application inside. Well, after that you can use social network just like on the phone. Including download photos and video without loss of quality.
Now I will show how to do it. Start from installing and setting the emulator. This procedure must be performed only once.
How to install and configure emulator:
1. Go to RU.Bignox.com and download the emulator.
2. Open the file received and install the program.
Usually the downloaded file is located in the "Download" folder. Installation Standard: Click "Set" and wait for the end of the process.

6. Select a photo and publish it.
In this way, you can add photos from a computer to Instagram. In addition, this method allows you to use all the functions of the application - in the same way as on the usual mobile phone.
On a note . In this article, I showed how to use the NoxPlayer emulator. This is not the only program of this kind - there are still bluestacks. But in the latest version of BlueStacks there are no shared folders with a computer. And, it means, to download photos you will have to use third-party expansion, which is not very convenient.
Method 4: Online Services
Online services - These are special sites that help publish entagram records. You go to such a website, enter your login / password from the insta and get a more advanced functionality for posting posts.
Important to remember ! Online service is an third-party resource, this is not an instagram. And when you enter the username and password of the user, then actually pass your data to the login is unknown to whom. It may be unsafe!
Here are the three most popular services, with which you can publish a photo in Instagram:
- Instmsk - free service. Everything is simple and intuitive, but it works with interruptions.
- SMMPLANNER-free, but with restrictions. The service is designed to postpone posting posts in social networks.
- Instaplus - five days for free, then 400 rubles per month. The service is designed to automatically promote the page in the inst.
I will not stop in detail, because everything is simple and intuitive: register, add an account and publish posts with photos. But remember that the services you use at your own risk!
Method 5: Windows programs
Instagram for a computer allows you to use the social network not through a browser, but through a separate application. It is convenient, but such a program requires the initial installation / setup.
In 2019, there are two main programs for working with social network:
- Official app for Windows 10
- GRAMBLR program
About the official app I will tell you quite a bit, as it knows how to do almost everything, except for downloading files from a computer. But about Gramblr talk more - you can easily download photos and videos through it.
App for Windows 10
In Windows 10 there are special applications to work with instagram. It is called - Instagram.
You can install it from Microsoft Store:
- Open Microsoft Store.

- Print in the Instagram string and select the application from the list
- Press the "Get" button and wait for the installation. You can open the application from start.
The Istagram program for Windows 10 has almost all the social network functions (even direct). But add photos from the computer via the application is impossible!
But this program can upload photos and is suitable for all versions of Windows (XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10).
How to download:
1. Go to the official site gramblr.com and click on the "Download Now for Windows" button.
2. Unpack the downloaded file archive - usually it is in the "Download" folder.
On a note . To unpack the archive, right-click on it and select "Extract to the current folder". If there is no such item, it means you need to install the archiver to the computer. For example, a free 7-zip.
3. The program file will appear. It is through it that we will run Gramblr and upload a photo in instagram. Therefore, it is better to transfer this file (copy / paste) to a more convenient place, for example, on the desktop.
4. We launch Gramblr and register:
- Indicate your mail
- We assign a password to enter Gramblr
- Enter login to Instagram
- We enter the password from it and click "Register"
If you can not register (the program does not allow further), try to change the mail in the account settings.
With successful registration, the program window will appear.
How to publish photo:
1. Click inside the program - where it is written "Drag and release an image or video ...".
2. In the window that appears, open the desired file - click on it twice the left mouse button.

That's all: the snapshot is published on your page in inst!
There are five ways to lay out a photo from a computer in Instagram:
The fastest way to add a photo to instagram from the computer is to download it through the developer mode. But it is not very convenient - the expansion in this regard is better. But the developer mode and the extension is suitable only for posting posts. Other social network functions in them do not work (for example, direct). The only way all is available and everything works - Android emulator. But he is the most time consuming.
P.S. You can also throw a photo directly: Connect the phone to the computer via the USB wire, pour the desired pictures to the DCIM folder and place them in instagram through the phone application (as usual).
Instagram is an initially completely mobile application. The functionality was designed for smartphones and tablets without the possibility of using fixed computers. So why do some users need to go to instagram or publish photos through a PC?
- One of the reasons is the lack of a mobile device on the IOS or Android platform.
- Create photos with a full-fledged camera. After processing images, they are easier and faster immediately lay out in instagram from the computer.
- The working need for some SMM and content managers, which are provided only by a computer or a non-tutor.
If you feel about one of the above categories, or just want to know how to work with Instagram through a computer, we will tell some useful secrets.
We enter the personal office of instagram through a computer
Instagram has an instagram.com web version with partial application functionality. With the link you can view any profile in the browser. You can also easily create a new page when filling out standard registration fields: Mobile phone / email, name / surname, username and password. If you enter your data and enter your personal account, you will get access to such functions:
- View news ribbons, likes and comments;
- Changes in personal data of the profile;
- commenting and linking publications;
- View storage;
- Subscription, prompt or add to Ban.
As we said earlier, Instagram is designed for mobile devices, so most important options are not available in the web version of this platform. Through the browser, you cannot publish new posts, shoot and lay out Instastories and watch private messages in Direct.
If you, nevertheless, you need to post a post in instagram using a stationary computer or laptop, follow a few simple actions:
- Go to Instagram.com's official website through any convenient browser: Google Chrome, Opera or Yandex browser. Then enter your credentials and access your personal account.
- Open the Additional window - the developer console - using the Ctrl + Shift + i combination (for the Google Chrome browser) or by pressing the right mouse button and selecting the "View code" option.
- In the new window you need to go from the usual mode to "Mobile". This can be done by pressing the smartphone and tablet icon in the upper left corner of the developer console.
- Now you can select the desired device from the drop-down list in the top line, as well as set a convenient scale and resolution.
- After turning on the mode at the bottom of the instagram tape, the camera icon will appear. Click on it and select the desired image for the new publication. If suddenly the icon does not appear, we advise you to update the page.
Also, to post a photo in Instagram from the computer, you can use the SMMPLANNER online service. It is possible to schedule the release of the post with photos, video or in Storsith. Read more - in the article "How to post a photo in Instagram from a computer online" in the SMMPlanner blog (https://smmmplanner.com/blog/kak-vylozhit-foto-v-instagram-s-kompyuteram-s-kompyutera-onlajn/.).
How to download Instagram on a computer: Official app for Windows ten
For users who have the Windows 10 operating system installed on the computer, there is another way to use the official application. To do this, go to the Microsoft Store virtual store and download the FREE program to the stationary device. When starting, you need to enter your data, as in the mobile version, and go to your personal Instagram profile.
But here the developers have limited the functionality of the application in order not to move accents from portable devices. In the dexte version you can view the posts and storm of other users, subscribe and unsubscribe, edit the profile and leave comments. You will even get to write down and lay out your instastories using the front camera on a laptop. But the main function of publishing posts still remains unavailable for computer applications Instagram.
Create publication in instagram from a computer using a mobile application
As we see from previous recommendations, instagram is actively fighting using your application on stationary devices. Limited functionality, complex setup schemes and an uncomfortable interface do not allow to work fully in the dextop or web version of Instagram. Therefore, today, the optimal solution is to install additional Android emulators on your laptop or computer.
To download such software, use Google search or read the overview of the best Android emulators for Windows (or the OS that is installed on your device). Some of the most popular programs - NOX App Player and Bloustacks. Both of these emulators you can download free on the official sites of developers, and then use to create a new post in instagram.
The principle of operation of such programs is almost identical. Only some steps can be different when gaining access to the profile or action during image loading. For example, BlueStacks requires mandatory Google account data entry. Without them, you will not be able to install the mobile version of Instagram on your computer. Nox App Player starts easier, however, to publish a photo you will need to transfer the desired images into the internal emulator memory.
