Cheater’s Guide ~ How to Post Your Awesome DSLR Photos to Instagram

Cheater's Guide ~ How to Post Your Awesome DSLR Photos to Instagram By: NotSoIdleHands.com

Ok, so we all know how awesome Instagram is {case in point, Jess~ The Fun Instagram Mom}, but we also all know how frustrating it is that we can’t post the fantabulous pics we take with our super expensive DSLR cameras. What did we buy them for anyways, if we always end up taking pics of important events with our phones JUST so we can throw ‘em up onto Instagram later?

Well, there are apps you can install on your computer for that….but I found them super difficult to understand and to install. Then, I got mad and gave up halfway through…..so there are, like 6 separate programs, half installed on my laptop.

But, I’m here to teach you a Cheater’s way to quickly upload your great, non~blurry, non~badly lit photos to Instagram! This works for both my phone and tablet….but I have both Android devices, so hopefully it’s not too different for other brands.

Ready?

Start by shooting some first~rate shots of your kiddos {or dogs, or spouse, or creepy bunny staring at you through your basement window}.  Here’s a throwback shot of the kiddos taken by our awesome photographer Jen Gagliardi {whom we are sad to not be near anymore} It’s one of my favs of all 3 kiddos together, since that’s rare to get.

Save it to your computer {this one was already saved obviously} and then email it to yourself. *I have to attach mine as an “attachment” with the paperclip icon…..this doesn’t work for me if I just do the “insert photo” option. You don’t need to add anything in the “subject” line or compose an email….unless you have something important you need to say to yourself, or unless your email requires you to.

Use your phone or tablet to open the email and hit the menu button, then hit the “share” button.

Then the “Instagram” button.

There you have it! The super easy “Cheater” way to upload much, much, much better pics to your Instagram. Of course, your phone is still good for taking impromptu snap shots,  but now you can start bringing your awesome DSLR to the kids’ soccer games again.

Have fun!
