If necessity is the mother of invention, then that’s the reason behind the Uplet app. It’s a Mac app which uploads photos to Instagram. How can that be if Instagram prefers users to do all their photo uploading and sharing via the Instagram app? I’m not going to ask. But Uplet works.
Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
Pretty much all the basics to Instagram are included in Uplet and it works on your Mac using the keyboard. Share multiple photos with a click, including higher resolution images. Even captions can be added to a photo uploaded to Instagram. Right from your Mac.
How? Drag and drop works just fine. In fact, Uplet works much like the Instagram app on the iPhone.
Grab the photos you want to share online using Instagram, drop them onto the Uplet window, click Add Caption to type in your photo caption, and then click Share.
Uplet lets you upload photos that are not square (one thing I don’t like about Instagram is the square photo and square video), which means you can publish whatever size photo you have with aspect ratios between 1.91:1 or 4:5 (odd, no?).
One benefit to using Uplet to send photos to Instagram is the keyboard. It’s much easier and faster to type photo captions on the Mac’s keyboard than the iPhone’s keyboard.
Each photo can be cropped and edited so each photo can have a somewhat unique appearance that sets it apart from the standard Instagram fare. In fact, you can even crop photos, use the original size or square Instagram size. You can even use emojis and hashtags.
Bulk photo uploads to Instagram work much the same way. Grab a few photos, drop them onto Uplet, set the caption for each one, and you’re good to go.
How is that Uplet works while Instagram doesn’t even have a Mac app? I’m of the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ crowd. It just works.
