The social network Instagram has made it possible to create and upload posts directly from the desktop web version. It is the first time that the social network offers this alternative. Until recently, publishing from a computer was only possible using a few tricks.
What is new is that it will now not be necessary to develop strategies since the company has locally integrated this alternative. So posts can be done in two steps just as they can be done from a cell phone.
How to publish
- Enter from the computer to Instagram, log in if this is not done yet, then press the top margin on the square icon with the plus sign in the middle, the same as for the version of posts in the mobile version.
- The new feature is highlighted with text that says: “You can now create and share posts directly from your computer.”
- Once this is done, the following image will appear which says “New Post” and then you must select the image or video that you want to include in the platform. It should be noted that you can choose more than one multimedia content, and filters can also be added as well as a phrase to accompany the post.
There is also the option to crop the image to the original size, square (1:1), portrait (4:5), or landscape (16:9). It is also possible to adjust brightness, saturation, and other elements that edit photos. All functions are also available in the mobile version.
Share tweets on Instagram on iOS
Another novelty that has arrived on the platform, this time from the hand of Twitter is that the microblogging network now allows you to share tweets in the Stories section of Instagram. This avoids the need to take screenshots of a tweet to share through an image on the social network owned by Facebook.
The widget appears when you press the Share button at the bottom of the Tweet. Among the options we see one that says Instagram Stories. At the moment, this option is only available for iOS devices, Apple’s mobile operating system.
