You can easily upload to Instagram from a desktop computer by using
either Chrome or Opera and switching into Developer Mode. (I use Opera
and the menu access is Menu > Developer > Developer Tools, then pick a
phone to emulate.)

The trick is to format your images to one of the three accepted sizes:
square 1080px x 1080px, panoramic 1080px x 608px, or 8x10 1080px x
