As you may already know we like to make your life easier with digital tips and tricks. We bring you tools we discover from time to time. One of such is Gamblr. Gamblr is a desktop application that lets you upload photos to Instagram from your laptops, personal computers and Macbook.
(Caution: Ensure you read the conclusion at the end of the article)
Sometimes you have a photo or photos on your desktop computer which you would like to upload to your Instagram profile. You might not want to go through the stress of transferring it to your phone first. Perhaps you lost your phone or just have quite a number of photos that are not on your phone. Gamblr is a great application to do this. There are a couple of others e.g. Deskgram etc. You can log in to your account via the Instagram website on a desktop computer but can’t upload photos.
So let’s dive straight into the steps, ready? Here we go!
Gamblr Step 1: Download and Install the Application
This was obvious right? Yeah yeah! It was still worth mentioning. Go to the website and download which ever one applies to you. Next you will need to install the executable (.exe) file you have downloaded. To install double-click on the .exe file. Once it begins, take a short stroll or go get a glass of water.
Now that you are back, we can move on to the next step.
Gamblr Step 2: Load the application and sign-up
The application should either be in your Start menu list or on your Desktop environment. Double-click on any of them to load the application. The application will prompt you to sign-up.
You should see something like this:
Gamblr Step 3: Sign into the application and click Upload Now
By now you already have an account and have linked your Instagram profile. Simply sign into the application and you will see an environment with different buttons and links. Click on “Upload Now” on the right of the environment. See image below:
Gamblr Step 4: Click on the Drag and Drop Box
You will then need to click on the Drag and Drop image box to select the image you want to upload. The image for upload should be saved where you can easily access it. This makes it quicker to drag and drop the image on Gamblr.
Gamblr Step 5: Set the Properties for Your Image
The next steps of screens allow you set different properties for your image. You will be prompted to select the size you want, add filters or motions. If you are unsure what size to choose, just select 1:1 and click “Save”. The next page after you save size prompts you to filter your image or apply motions to it. If you would like your image to appear as is, click “Continue”. The next page to be displayed is the “Caption” page which leads us to Step 6.
See images below for guidance on Step 5:
Gamblr Step 6: Type in Caption and Tag People
Simply type in your caption in the page displayed after you have carried out Step 5. Here is where you enter all your hashtags etc. Right beneath your image you can tag whoever you want to tag. Just enter their Instagram username if you remember it.

Gamblr Step 7: Choose When To Post Image and Click Send/Schedule As The Case May Be
This is the final step! Gamblr lets you choose when to upload an image or video. You can send immediately or “some other time”. With “some other time”, you can schedule posts (See image below). Whatever you choose to do, clicking the send button publishes the post whether immediately or later. The con of scheduling posts with Gamblr is that you have to be online with the app at the scheduled time for it to publish the post.
It’s worth noting that nothing beats using the Instagram mobile app. Other apps are not as secure and great as the Instagram mobile app. Only use Gamblr and other apps when you absolutely need to. Apps like Gamblr will come in handy at such times. Do your best to avoid the free likes, gaining followers and coins. Ensure you have your anti-virus updated and working properly. Also read the Gamblr terms and conditions and be sure you are fine with them before downloading the app.
