Windowed: The Easiest Way to Post to Instagram from Your Computer

Windowed: The Easiest Way to Post to Instagram from Your Computer

The-Digital-Picture_com
For those Instagram users who utilize DSLRs and typically edit images on a desktop/laptop computer, publishing post processed images to instagram has always been... a pain. Because Instagram was designed for mobile devices, those who prefer to use dedicated photo equipment had to jump through hoops to get their imagery on the popular photo sharing social platform.
 
Finally, there's a really simple way for us to post to Instagram – Windowed.
 
The open source application, available for Windows and Macintosh, is a stripped-down browser for desktop operating systems which emulates a mobile browser. As such, Instagram is more than happy to accept uploads from Windowed.
 
From the Windowed website:
How does it work?
 
Simple! Instagram already provides the functionality to upload photos through a web browser, but sadly this feature is locked to mobile web browsers only. Windowed overcomes this issue by pretending to be a mobile browser, allowing you to visit the Instgram mobile website directly from your Mac or Windows PC.
 
*All of your interactions including login are done directly with Instagram, Windowed is simply a tool that lets you access the Instagram mobile website. We don't have access to your account so you don't have to worry about giving a 3rd party your account information.
*We are not associated with Instagram and do not claim to be. Windowed is a web browser.
I installed the software yesterday and quickly realized it was the best method for uploading to Instagram that I've come across; it's simple and efficient. The newest photo on my Instagram feed (seen above) was posted using Windowed. You can learn more about the program here. Be sure to send the developer a few dollars (through the Donate button) if you find the software helpful. [Sean]
