Title: Question: However, no answer as yet re: downloading images to Insta
Post by: raymond bleesz on March 23, 2018, 11:44:55 am
I may be in the wrong site, however, I may get an answer to my question which has been ongoing.

Re: Instagram and uploading images to such.  I am seeking "how" one downloads images from one's computer to Instagram---not using the iPhone. I am not using my iPhone to download images. My intention is to download images from my computer to Instagram. How is that done?

Simple question but I have not gotten an answer to this question.

A nerd here---thank you. Raymond

Soloban,

Thank you for your response. Next question: It is my understanding that one could download images from the computer to the iPhone---if that is correct, then how is that done.  Raymond

Very easy...email to yourself.

My computer is iMac and I have an iPhone, so, in addition to emailing it to myself, I can simply use the AirDrop (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204144) feature on both, if close to each other (Bluetooth range).

There is an app by the name of "Grids" by Think Time Creations if I'm not mistaken. Don't know if they have a Windows version but they do have a Mac version and you can upload pictures to Instagram right from your Mac desktop. I use it and there are no issues with it.

@bwalker: Use LRInstagram.  It's a shareware plugin (just Google it) that runs as a Publish service.  Has worked flawlessly for me for 3+ years.  A bonus is that it adds two metadata fields you can use to populate your caption and hashtags.  Add a metadata template to that and your hashtag druggery days are over.
