If you are moving around too much and find yourself in the situation where you have to capture a scene around, then Instagram is the best application for both taking the picture and sharing it over the web.
It not only works as a photo-taking application, but also as a photo customization tool and photo sharing social platform. The popularity of Instagram is way beyond any other smartphone based picture sharing social network.
It is extremely easy to use which helps the user to inch towards addictiveness with the application. A picture can either be snapped and customised or you can directly snap a picture which is customised at the same moment.
Before sharing it over the platform, you can add dozens of filters to make it look further unique. Most of the filters available are retro inspired, but you will also find a lot of unique ones too. All I can say is that you start using it and from the very first picture you share, you will become an active member.
Creation of a new account is pretty simple. You can either do that using the Facebook account or also via an email address. After that, it’s actively working ahead of you. You can follow profiles of other people and photography channels.
Almost every brand or service which is related to pictures is now available over the Instagram and it clearly helps everyone in staying updated with the latest trends.
Sounds awesome, huh? Why don’t you begin using it?
For starters, I recommend you to have an Android or iPhone smartphone which is having the rear camera with at least 8MP lens. Anything short or old will make your pictures look dull because of poor image quality.

Benefits of using Instagram on computer
As I cleared in the introduction itself, the native Instagram website allows users to see the material which is only available as public. You can go through profiles and the pictures they shared, but can’t do anything else. You can’t even login with your account to comment or like anything.
To get all these benefits on the computer, you need to install Instagram on laptop or computer. This will ensure that you get every feature running which is indeed running on a compatible smartphone.
Because a PC has a mouse and fully physical keyboard, you will be able to easily navigate through the application and also participate in a discussion at a very high speed.
This is the single and all of the benefits of going through this method to use this photo sharing platform. Not to mention, this platform got millions of users and most importantly, they are actively sharing pictures and video loops. So, are you interested in doing the same right from your desktop or laptop?
This is the section where you will check the system you own, whether or not it is compatible to run Instagram on it. So, start the matchmaking process as I have explained below.
The first thing to ensure is the performance wellbeing. Make sure the system holds at least 4GB RAM and 5-10GB of free storage in the root folder (C Drive in Windows). It will ensure that the system never gets slow down. Also, the processor should have dual cores with a clock speed of 1.4GHz or higher.
Next requirement is at the graphics level and your system should be running on updated graphic driver. The driver should also be compatible with HD standard of visuals and animations. So does the display monitor of the system, i.e., it should have HD or higher standard resolution.

Steps to Download Instagram for PC
This is the part where you will find those step by step instructions to go through in order to get Instagram installed on PC or laptop. I have tested this on both Windows and Mac platforms, and I didn’t find many differences in the individual processes. That’s why, I am adding both of them together.
Note – I am hoping that you are already aware of the process of how an app or software gets installed on Windows or Mac system you own. If you want detailed guide over the installation, then I will link it up within that particular step.
Step 1 – The first thing to do is to grab the installer package. This is going to be the online installer (not the offline one) and I always recommend you to choose this. Because, it promises to install newly available, updated and stable (also better performing) software. Do I have to name the software? (Hint – Its the number one Android App Player).
Step 2 – Once you downloaded the package, you can begin with its installation. As promised above, here is the section covering BlueStacks app player installation in details. You can select the platform and see the details mentioned over there.
After the software is installed, begin using it. For the first time, it may take some time to start up but once it does, you will not face any downtime or slow performance.
Step 3 – Its time to use the search tool you see at the top left corner. You have to click on the same and enter ‘Instagram’ as the search term within. It will act quickly and you will see a clickable link under the search results saying ‘No results’.
Step 4 – At the very next screen, the app player will ask you to login into the system in order to setup the synchronisation feature. It will only take a Google account because it’s the Android system we are using and it requires an authentication.
Step 5 – After the login part is done and you gain access to Android’s ecosystem, the search tool will take you to the Google play store. Now again, you will see a search results out of which you need to click on ‘Instagram’ application.
Step 6 – Finally it’s listing will open and you will see an ‘install’ button to click on. Once you click it, the Instagram app will begin downloading and then it will be installed on its own.
The process is completed without any issues now! Your job is to wait till app gets installed and once it does, you will see a notification at the desktop screen.
