How To Add Pictures On Instagram From PC [Upload pictures from pc to instagram]

Since instagram is the new thing in the social network sites but restricts its users on full control of functions unless users are on the Android phones or ios Iphone. It is to this restrictions, that makes heads roll as it compels you to move to one of the devices being it iphone or android phones in order to use it. Some of the main functions of instagram is to upload pictures on ur TL just like how titter works but this time through pictures, users can also link their instagram accounts to their facebook accounts in other for the benefit of automatic upload of pictures to facebook when uploaded to instagram. So in this situation, we are going to install instagram on our pc through an android os emulator on the pc called bluestacks. [how-to-install-whatsapp-on-pc]


Well, after the install, users started facing difficulties on how to upload pictures to instagram directly from the pc they are using, so this is what this post is about.
Firstly, move all pictures you want to upload to instagram from the pc to the default windows pictures folder. NB: for best results, create folders in the directory and move the pictures there.
Now search for the application ''Es file explorer'' in your app search button on the bluestacks home.
after you search and download, it is supposed to show like it is in the picture below

After successfully passing this step, we now click on the ES file explorer to search if the pictures we want appears in them, after clicking, you should find something similar to what is in the below picture and click on the ''bstfolder''
After clicking you will find folders which include ''Bstsharedfolder, pictures'' you can use the Bstsharedfolder in place of the windows default pictures i earlier explained, and this is how to access that in windows explorer c:\ProgramData\BlueStacks\UserData\SharedFolder\ (make sure show hidden files is enabled for your folders)
So in my case, i will be using the pictures folder instead of the Bstsharedfolder. After opening the pictures folder, u will see all pictures u moved to the directory showing including the folders you created inside the pictures directory, the below image makes its clearer to understand in my case i named my pictures i put in the folder ''pix''
After confirming your pictures are showing, 
 you come back to the Bluestacks application and click on the instagram icon. (make sure you log in, or create an account first) now u click on the camera button like indicated in the image below.
 After that you will see a similar thing as shown in the image below, now click on the right button(where my arrow is showing in the image below)

 Now this is the most important part you should take note of, after clicking on that, a window will pop up for you to either choose image from the gallery or  ES file explorer to upload on instagram, now, you should pick the ES file explorer NOT GALLERY!

After clicking on that, the ES file explorer will open the folder and you should navigate to where the images are (IT WILL BE EXACTLY WHERE WE CONFIRMED TO SEE PREVIOUSLY WHERE THEY WERE) now select image and all steps taken well, you should be able to upload the pictures into you instagram account successfully.
All questions should be directed to the comment box, and a thank you will be appreciated.

  3. Is there a way to get full fullscreen? The Picture i want to upload (after crop) takes upp all the screen and there is no way for me to be able to press upload or choose filter...

    This is the same even if I don't use fullscreen mode.

    Thanks for your help!

  10. I have the same problem as pangga, I hit the last arrow to upload, but it just goes back to the home screen or whatever I was looking at before trying to upload the image. Any ideas why? Because I have successfully uploaded a few pics this way until recently.

  11. you have to update your graphic card drivers or .Net frame work, if this does not work, uninstall the Bluestacks and look for the older version
