Is it possible to directly share pictures and videos to Instagram from PC? Well, the short answer is, Yes. In this step-by-step guide, you will learn how to easily upload pictures and videos from PC to Instagram.
Previously, it was only possible to quickly share images and clips on Instagram through the help of third-party applications. Although they perform the intended task but not without the danger of compromising the security of your device.
Many such apps by unknown developers quietly harvest user data, login credentials, and require permission to access the device’s features. Sharing your sensitive information with app developers should be avoided as much as possible.
Moreover, pictures taken from DSLR have to be compressed and edited through software like Photoshop on your PC. Also, when the editing is complete, you are required to share the final image to your device for uploading it to Instagram. All these extra steps can waste a lot of time, especially when you have multiple photos to share.
Therefore, to cut through all the unnecessary steps, follow this simple tutorial to share photos and videos to Instagram straight from your computer. There is no need for any app or software. But before starting, why not check out how to share panorama pictures on Instagram.
