How to Run Instagram on Your PC

How many times have you found yourself uploading photos to Google Drive or to your cell phone so you can share them with Instagram? Isn’t it a royal pain? I love using Instagram with cell phone pics, but I’m also into sharing images that I create or have saved on my pc. Uploading them to the phone is kind of a pain for me so I had to find a workaround.

I tried the emulator with Pokimenu, but it didn’t allow me to run a real Instagram session. I had to run it through a different app and I couldn’t upload or take pics with this app.

I then tried Bluestacks. This is totally amazing. It doesn’t seem to have a huge memory footprint and I haven’t crashed because of Bluestacks as of yet. I am able to actually run Instagram and upload photos from my machine.

I couldn’t get it to upload and publish pics from the webcam. I’m not sure why this is. Perhaps the photo is just to big for Instagram to process? Also, when doing a video session on cam, the sound was distorted and also never completed the upload.

I think I will just probably use it to upload images I have modified through Fireworks or immediate uploads from social sites while working on the PC. I will continue to use my phone for images and videos of all the fun activities in my life.

If you try and it and you are able to figure out why it doesn’t upload the webcam pics and vidz then please comment here. I think it is just because of the file or pixel size.
