How To Upload Photos To Instagram From A Computer
Very often, the photo that we want to put on Instagram is on the hard drive of your computer. In this case, sharing it with instances is a little more difficult than just making a card using your fashionable smartphone. However, it is still quite possible.
If you have Instagram installed on your smartphone, then the whole task boils down to how to transfer a photo to your phone. This task is quite trivial and lies outside the scope of this article. The case when you do not have a smartphone and use Instagram via BlueStacks from a regular computer (we already have articles on how to register on Instagram and use it from a computer) seems much more interesting to us.
So, the initial data is the following. you already have BlueStacks installed under Windows and it has the coveted Instagram. You have already registered an account and now you want to upload pictures from your computer there.
The procedure will now be as follows:
1. Copy all the photos you are interested in to the folder C: \ ProgramData \ BlueStacks \ UserData \ SharedFolder (if you have a Mac, then you have a different folder. Which one I don’t know. I assume, however, that if you have a Mac, then you and iPhone have. And in this case, you do not need this instruction!)
2.! Important! The C: \ ProgramData folder is hidden by default, so enable hidden folders first
3. Launch BlueStacks
4. Through the Android Market (Google Play) or downloading the APK from any site from under Windows, install a program called ES File Manager
5. Launch ES File Manager and enter the bstFolder folder and then BstSharedFolder. If you don’t see these folders, search for “bstfolder” (without quotes). Next, go to the search results in the BstSharedFolder folder
6. In the above folder, you will find all the files that were uploaded there under Windows. Select the necessary ones and copy them to the clipboard (long press to select the file, then select “Copy” or “Copy” in the context menu)
7. Next, in the ES File Manager application you are currently in, click the Up icon button. This will send you to the main menu, i.e. to the SD card. If for some reason this option does not suit you, it is not forbidden to switch to the SD card in any other way that does not violate the law, for example, through the quick access panel, as in the screenshot =)
8. Insert your photos onto the virtual SD card in the DCIM folder (Menu. Operation. Paste or the quick “Insert” button at the bottom of the screen)
9. Well, now everything is simple. Launch Instagram, go to the Gallery section and there you will find your precious photos
10. Done! You can process photos to your liking and share them with friends!
