Upload to Instagram from your browser – step by step guide from Tivamoo

Friday~~ (actually it’s Thu when I am writing this blog but I can already feel my excitement for the weekend😅❤️)

Today I want to talk about a small trick I just learned – upload picture onto your Instagram from your Mac… (➡️ go to my Instagram here). If you are using your camera to take pictures, I am sure you know what I am talking about here! Look at my screenshot below; there is no No NO button to add a photo!

Now of course you can export the picture onto your phone and load it from there. But it’s a bit hassle to juggle with 2 devices. Alternative, what you can do is…

  1. Go to Safari on your Mac.
  2. Go to Safari -> Preference -> Advanced -> Tick the last box ‘Show Develop menu in menu bar’
  3. Check the menu bar and you should be able to see the option ‘Develop’


Now you are half way through.😆 Then what you need to do is to open a private window. The reason why you want to open private window is that you might not want the setting to be kept/ applied to other websites by default.


So from there, go to Develop (the menu we just added) -> User Agent -> Safari iOS.🙃 So basically you want to use the browser as if it’s an iPhone.


Then you are all set! Your Instagram should be able to upload photos now from browser~ see the icon coming up compared to the first screenshot.



 Happy uploading!😉
