Hey!! I was able to post directly to instagram from my desktop computer without having to pretend it was my phone!!

I've had that option for about 6 months or more (they rolled it out to business accounts first) but don't find it too useful . Even though in theory you can load an original size image the web app crops it when loading Portrait orientation images. The other crops sizes they offer are 1:1, 4:5 and 16:9.

I've had some weird looking images in my feed when I've loaded from the computer (they look fine on the computer) and real challenges with uploading more than one image. I don't post much to IG anyway these days so it's not really a problem.

You can have some of mine. I've got 27 followers and I've never posted anything there. The only reason I ever joined Instagram was because I came across some photographers I wanted to follow, but I hardly ever look at the site. Maybe now that one can post from the computer I'll try posting there.


OO just looked at it and I have 146 followers LOL

I posted some photos, but mostly used it for liking my sister in laws new farm flower business in England and my brothers classic car interior company. I got all excited yesterday and went to post something then got distracted by a cat video lol

If that is true, then that is a game changer. I get bored after the 4th hashtag thingy.
