    This guide will allow you to upload photos from your Windows Phone without any third-party apps. This guide requires a PC.

    Connect your Windows Phone to your PC and copy "Camera Roll" to my Pictures

    You will need BlueStacks which can be obtain from here: Run Mobile Apps on Windows PC or Mac with BlueStacks | Android App Player

    You'll need to now install Instagram.

    Now, install ES File Explorer

    {upload error}

    Now, both Instagram and ES File Explorer should be installed.

    Launch Instagram. Log in to Instagram. If you don't have an Instagram account, you may create one.

    Follow the blue arrow, then the red arrow.

    jeez if people are going to take my idea, at least do it right. download instafit free and an email program. bluestacks has a difficult time identifying new pictures so emailing the picture is the fastest way. outlook.com app in android sucks but its effective. open with the standard gallery, then share to instafit free, then share to instagram. no stupid cropping needed.

    been doing this since the windows 8 release preview...

    and i still bought instagraph and tagged my upload with #2instawithlove. support hard working devs

    Good guide. I usually just take my pictures and then go download them through skydrive on my iPad, and upload from there.

    I'm using BlueStacks too. But I use my SkyDrive to upload my photos from my Lumia 920 to my computer. And I turn on the auto upload. It's very simple and easy to use it.

    Great acritle, but how is it related to WP? It's a PC solution... not for WP.

    The thread is fine. It's posted in the Off-Topic forum, which says that it is not related to Windows Phone.

    I installed this and it works fine for the most part. However, sometimes after I apply a filter to a photo and go to proceed to the next step to upload, it just says "Processing" and doesn't do anything and goes back to the home page. Anyone else have the same issue?

    TempestuousNewt I had the same problem and I solved it by going in the Bluestacks settings and chanching the "mobile version for Instagram used" to "tablet version"

    Sort of kills the 'Insta' part of the equation.
