Instagram is pretty easy-to-use on iOS devices; however, sometimes you prefer to post a photo as quickly as possible without having to use this app. Aside from sending an image from other iPhone apps through Instagram’s Share sheet extension, Instagram now allows you to upload images via Safari.
How to post images to Instagram in Safari
Step 1: Initially, you need to access instagram.com in Safari on your iOS devices and log into Facebook or your Instagram account
Step 2: Next up, you need to tap the Camera button at the bottom
Step 3: Then, a menu will appear. Not only can you take a new photo or choose an existing image from your Photos library, but you also can upload one from a cloud-storage service. In reality, you are offered with two available options.
- If you choose Take Photo, you can take a photo with your iPhone’s camera. As soon as you snap an image, you can tap Use Photo to create a new Instagram post or hit Retake to delete the image and take a new one.
- If you choose Photo Library, you can select a photo from photo library. Some local and online storage services like Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive can appear in the menu if they are installed on your devices and support iOS’s Document Provider extension point. If you would like to choose a cloud service, you tap More. After that, enable or disable individual services and tap Done to save the changes.
Step 4: Next, you need to tap Next to continue

Moreover, you can switch between landscape and portrait orientation by hitting the icon in the lower-left corner. Or if you do not want to create a new Instagram post, you can tap the “x” in the upper-left corner.
