Send images to your mobile device, share on Instagram from desktop.Get Started Now
Sharing to Instagram from your desktop is still tricky with most third-party software. But with Stencil, we've built an amazing workaround that's fast, simple and very effective. We get around this by letting you SMS (Short Message Service or text message) your image to your mobile device, so you can quickly share it via the Instagram app. Once it’s on your phone, it’s easy to share straight to Instagram.
With Stencil's live previews, you can see just how your image will look on Instagram before sharing. Toggle between "Desktop Preview" and "Mobile Preview" to see how it'll look on a desktop screen vs. a smaller mobile device.
Since the image is getting sent to you as a text message, there's no need to install any additional apps on your mobile device. This keeps the process fast, seamless with no additional steps to get setup. Simply send the finished image to your phone and it's ready to be shared on Instagram.
