How to Upload images on your PC to Instagram 10

Image sharing has grown in popularity with places like Pinterest appearing out of nowhere. 

Another image sharing social network is Instagram.  If you own an Android or Apple device, chances are you may even have the Instagram App installed.

The idea is simple.  You snap an image with your smartphone or tablet, and upload it to your Instagram account for your followers to see.

As a marketer, the built in tools are a little limited.  You can apply a filter to your image, but for better results you might like to edit the image on your PC or Mac first.  The problem then becomes how do you transfer it from your computer to Instagram. 

If you have a PC, there is a beta product that can help.  It’s an Android emulator for the PC.  You install it, then browse the Android marketplace for any apps you want to run, right there on your PC.  You can install Instagram and then directly upload photos from your PC to Instagram – at least in theory.  It doesn’t seem to work for me as the following video shows.  However, also in the video I ‘ll mention how I upload photos from my PC to Instagram.  If you have a Mac, this system will also work for you.
