Post to Instagram from your PC or Mac

  1. Click on “Create Post” button in the upper left-hand corner. Then choose to post to the Instagram feed or to IGTV.
    • IGTV video is an app that can be used alone or in tandem with Instagram. It’s essentially Instagram’s answer to YouTube in that it’s designed for the mobile-optimized viewing of long-form videos. Any user can set up their own channel and share video content that’s up to an hour-long.
  2. Now add all the details you would like for your post.  You can add a caption, location, photo, and tag someone. 
  3. Then choose to publish right away, schedule or save as a draft.
