Also, if you are a fan of the selfie trend that is becoming such a craze these days, then this is definitely the app to get you to join in. Just take a picture, post it on your account, and interact with friends online.
But there is a Problem
There has been a problem, though, in that Instagram has been purely an app for mobile devices. The free Instagram app was originally designed for taking, editing and sharing images on mobile phones, rather than desktop machines. Now, so many people have expressed interest in knowing how to use the app on their personal computers (PC), so they can upload photos to Instagram from them as well. As much as solutions to this problem have been sought, there has not been Instagram for PC app available. It would make it easy to upload photos and use the app’s filters on your PC and a lot of people who enjoy Instagram would be able to use a full-featured version on their laptops or desktop computers.
Nevertheless, some very tech savvy individuals have come up with a number of ways aimed at solving this problem.
Fortunately, there also is a Solution
You could install a special software program designed to simulate a mobile phone Operating System (OS) known as a phone emulator on your computer. This will provide you with a way to run mobile apps. Once the software is installed and running, search for ‘Instagram’ by use of the app’s search interface, then install it on your PC.
If you use Windows as your Operating System, you could use Gramblr, another app that offers a simpler to install and use up-loader that uploads photos from a desktop computer to Instagram. It is a free program that allows you to plug-in your Instagram account info and upload photos there and then. This means that you must have an Instagram account to be able to use Gramblr, hence Instagram for your PC. You will be needed to first edit your photos to size 650px by 650px, which is the required size for Gramblr. After this, you can add tags and maybe descriptions to the image(s). After the app uploads your photo(s), it provides you with links to share them.
