Updated: 5/8/2022. Photo: CarlFordWoodturner on Instagram 1I dual post on Pinterest and Instagram on a regular basis (almost daily). Same photos and text on both.

Over time, I have decided. I like Pinterest better than Instagram. Why? Groups on Pinterest make things easier to find! I host a big (over 300 items) Photo Gallery of my work on Pinterest with a user friendly (no logon) front end.

Updated: 11/30/2020. I am now using “BlueStacks 4” free Android emulator to post things on Instagram from my computer. Normally, I don’t like emulators. But, I like this one. It works pretty good.

With BlueStacks I can edit existing posts and create new posts with multiple photos. I could not do this thru the Chrome web browser back door.

I still prefer viewing (browsing) things on Instagram via Chrome web browser on my computer. My AdBlocker Ultimate chrome extension blocks a lot of crap. And, it just works better and faster. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.

Note: It takes along time to download and install BlueStacks. Starting up BlueStacks can also be slow. BlueStacks is primarily used for playing games. BlueStacks recognizes and uses the sort of high end Nvidia graphs card in my notebook PC.
