This tutorial explains how to upload photos to Instagram from desktop.
Gramblr is a free software that lets you upload photos to your Instagram account right from the desktop. You can upload jpg and jpeg format images using this software. It lets you post one photo at a time, but still it is useful when you are working on your PC, and need to update your Instagram account with a new picture.
As you know that using the web app of Instagram only lets you view your Instagram profile and photos, but you can’t upload photos to your account. Even Instagram desktop clients don’t support feature to upload images to Instagram. So, the only choice left with you is to use mobile app of Instagram for uploading the photos. In that case, you can use this handy software to upload photos directly from the desktop to Instagram.
