User-friendly and Functional Instagram Uploader for PC 2019
September 2, 2019 5:19 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for a Instagram uploader for PC that would be easy to use and offer full features such as scheduling posts, editing captions and uploading multiple photos.

I edit photos of my art extensively using Photoshop before uploading so I would prefer to upload my photos from my PC rather from my phone. I tried Gramblr briefly but it seems to be no longer supported/working.

I'm using Firefox and failing that, Chrome. I am not terribly familiar with Instagram and am not technically inclined so complicated workarounds will not do.

I would really like to gain a wider audience for my art via instagram so would appreciate your help.

I used the "LR/Instagram" plugin for Lightroom for a while. It doesn't support scheduling, but might be worth a look if you already have Lightroom with your Adobe subscription.

mortimore: Unfortunately, I don't have a CC subscription. I'm using an obsolete version of Photoshop.

Hmmm...the other thing I can think of is "Ramme". I use that at the moment, but I only post a single picture every few days. It's an open-source clone of the Instagram phone client. I don't think it's still in development, and it shows an error message at start and shut-down but otherwhise works. Still no scheduling (I thing Instagram/Facebook really hates that idea and they really really don't want you to post pictures from your PC). If you manage to find anything else that works and is free please let me know...I've been looking for something like that as well :)

mortimore: I'm currently experimenting with running Instagram on BlueStacks, an Android emulator. It works but it's slooow and a bit finicky. Of course, no scheduling.
