I think it’s safe to say everyone uses Instagram. Well almost everyone. Anyways while it is easy to upload photos and videos to Instagram on our mobile phones the same cannot be said for the desktop.
Instagram Mac – Uploading easily right from your Mac
Instagram makes it hard to upload photos directly from your desktop. There’s no way to do it using the Instagram website or the official app for Windows 10. Silly right, given that Instagram is all about sharing and one would think it will be as easy as swiping left or right on the phone. To make matters worse there’s no Instagram app for MacOS either.
This is very annoying especially if you want to post photos you’ve taken with a DSLR camera rather than a smartphone, or maybe you want to edit your photos and videos using a desktop software like photoshop before uploading them.
Thankfully there’s a handy way to get around it and upload photos to Instagram directly from your Mac. All you need is a third party software like Uplet. This app lifts the restrictions imposed by Instagram by allowing you to upload pictures and videos directly from your Mac through drag and drop. You can download uplet for a personal license that will cost $19.95the software requires at least OS X 10.9 to run. Basically, the app is very intuitive and works similar to what you will find on a phone. You can share multiple photos with one click.
As for an Instagram video uploader, you can get it at on getuplet.com.
Now you might be wondering if using such an app will compromise your account. Let me put it this way. As long as you follow these rules then you have nothing to worry about.
At the moment Instagram allows posting a maximum of 100 photos in 24 hours. If you exceed this limit, the photos will upload, but you will not see them posted to your feed. Once you reach the limit, you will have to wait till the next day, to continue posting. Besides, posting a hundred photos in 24 hours. Who does that?
Other rules include; no posting of photos that do not belong to you, contain nudity, violence, incite racial or religious intolerance. If you post photos with other people, do not forget to tag them. Make sure your pictures are unique, do not copy-paste the same comment under dozens of pictures.
However, this is still a new app and features are being added per each upgrade.
Like integrating MacOS spell checking ability into Uplet.
The app supports multiple Instagram accounts, so avoiding multiple re-logging, you can save your time.
Considering how limited the choices are, this is one app you should definitely give a try.
