While Instagram is often accessed and used on mobile devices, there are times when users want to be able to edit videos and images more delicately – with the larger screen of a computer making this much easier.

But is it possible to upload an Instagram story using your computer?

The quickest answer is no – unfortunately Instagram does not support the sharing of stories via computer devices, instead relying on mobile devices for this kind of in-app activity.

However, there are things you can do to benefit from the large screen editing experience on a computer and still be able to post to your story. Keep reading for a few hacks from us!

How to Post a Story Via Scheduling Tools

The best way to post on your Instagram story using a computer is to access the app via one of the scheduling platforms like Hootsuite.

On these programmes, users can upload the content that they want to post onto a story and schedule it – meaning that the content comes directly from a computer, just via a different upload process.

Edit Your Post Then Save to a Mobile Device For Posting

An alternative that you can try is editing and creating your images and story posts using Canva and other computer tools, before saving and sending them to a mobile device ready for upload.

This gives you the best of both worlds, so that you can still create picture perfect images and updates, before uploading them as normal via your mobile device.

We hope this helps, giving you some ideas on how to perfect your images and then share them with ease.
