Post to Instagram from Computer

Posted on Jun 23, 2017

A question came up in the SVSLearn Forum (Forum.SVSLearn.com) about uploading to Instagram via a computer. I always thought it was only possible via a mobile device, but after a quick search to confirm (“post to instagram from pc”), it appears that this can actually be done via a computer (at least for now). I haven’t tried to post from a computer, but clicking the camera does open a window for me to choose something to upload, so I’m supposing it works. Just not sure if you can add descriptions, tags, etc…

Here’s a screenshot:

I found this trick from:

How to upload photos to Instagram from a desktop browser

Most browsers have a way of letting you change the “User Agent” — the thing that tells a website what kind of device you’re on. So, even when you’re on a laptop or desktop, you can trick a website like Instagram into showing you the mobile site. That’s what we’re going to do.

Safari
On Safari, it’s easy. Go to Safari > Preferences > Advanced. Check the box at the very bottom that says, “Show Develop menu in menu bar.”

Now open a private browsing window. Head to Develop > User Agent > Safari — iOS 10 — iPhone. Go to Instagram.com, sign in and click the camera button at the bottom of the screen to upload a photo from your desktop.

Chrome
In Chrome, go to Instagram.com and sign in. Now right-click the page > Inspect > click the Tablet icon (top-left). The page should switch to mobile view, where you’ll find a camera button at the bottom of the screen, which lets you upload a photo from your desktop.

Editor’s note: This post was originally published on May 8 and has since been updated. Initial instructions for Chrome were not working for everyone, so we’ve updated the process.

Printer Recommendations

Posted on Dec 14, 2016

On Jake Parker’s site at mrjakeparker.com/tools, he lists the Epson R2000 Printer which he says:

“This is the best printer ever. I use it for making fine art prints that I sell at conventions. The color is stellar. It’s a work horse too. Any normal printer problems I’ve had with it were easily dealt with. I think every serious artist needs one. It’s also great for printing on smooth bristol or cardstock. I do my pencils in Photoshop, print them out, then ink over it. Win!”

I think that these are newer versions of that printer:

Epson Stylus Photo R2880 Wide-Format Color Inkjet Printer (C11CA16201)

Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Color Inkjet Printer (CA61201-VM)

Epson’s site shows a Stylus Pro 4900

epson-4900_300wx300h

Lee White says:

“I use the epson 4900 and it’s been amazing. It can print on board up to 1/4″ thick. It can print big and the color and resolution are amazing. Some people complain of print heads clogging up which is typically due to not using it enough. These printers need to run at least every other day, even if you just print something small to keep that from happening.”

Regarding paper for selling prints, Lee says:

“I use Epson bright white watercolor paper on roll for my prints that I sell. This is an amazing paper. Better than any other paper I have found.”

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/757230-REG/Epson_S045242_Glossy_Exhibition_Canvas_17.html

Of course, these printers aren’t exactly cheap… Also, they may be overkill if one only wants to print sketches onto watercolor paper and aren’t planning on using it for prints & such. I’m guessing that there are probably less expensive printers that will allow one to get started for something like that; though, 1/4″ thick… that’s nice!

I think there are a few things that one would need to look for in a printer for printing onto watercolor paper:

  1. Can it handle heavy paper? If it has a feeder, like the Epsons above, then it is likely to handle such.
  2. Can it handle the size of paper you are doing your watercolors at? If you just work at letter-size, then your options are wide, but if you work big, then you’ll have to go wide-format like the Epsons above; though, that only gets you up to maybe 13″ wide.
  3. Are the printed graphics water resistant? The Epson R2000 that Jake listed says that the inks are, I’m not sure about the other two, but I’m guessing they are too.

While I don’t have personal experience here since most all of my work has been digital for awhile, being able to print a light, refined sketch onto the paper being used would be so beneficial.
