Smartphone users who stumble across this article might wonder why it matters. 

With Instagram largely considered to be a mobile device app which is accessed and used on-the-go, you might be wondering why you would need to upload a post from a PC. 

But the fact is, sometimes images are easier to edit, and footage is easier to pull together, on a PC. 

Not only do you benefit from a larger screen, but the addition of a mouse and keyboard can make posting nice and easy. 

Here’s how to post on Instagram using a PC or laptop. 

6 Steps to Share a Post On Instagram Using a PC

  • Before you get started with creating and sharing a post on your PC, it’s important to make sure that all the content that you want to post is saved on the device you’re using
  1. Open Instagram on your PC and make sure that you are logged in
  2. Down the left hand side of your screen, you will see a series of options. Click on ‘Create’
  3. This will open a pop up message, inviting you to start selecting the photos and videos that you want to upload 
  4. Find and select the images that you want to share in your new post
  5. Move through the editing screens, adding any filters to your image, cropping it, and adding a caption 
  6. Click on ‘Share’ when you’re ready for the post to be sent to your feed

And there you have it, a post that has been shared via your PC device!

What Are The Benefits Of Posting On a PC?

Before we leave you to experiment and start comparing the posting process on a smartphone versus that on a PC, a few key points.

When you share on a PC, you have access to a bigger screen with more control over your editing. The zoom and crop function is a useful feature in the PC upload process, and the adjustments screen is much easier to control.

If you’ve tried both options, posting on a mobile device and a PC, we’d love to know which one you found easier!
