Maybe a bit off-topic (although it involves photography), but I need this in a place where I can find it if I forget it. There's no denying that Instagram is a world-wide success. I created an account many years ago, but never really used it, because the powers behind it limited its use to smartphones and tablets. I do have a tablet, but I found the process of sending pictures from my laptop by email to my tablet in order to be able to post them to Instagram far too tedious. This week I came across a simple elegant solution to this first world problem: on Chrome, load the Instagram page and sign in. Then right click anywhere, click inspect, and on the top of the inspect insert, select the second symbol (toggle device toolbar). Presto: you have now fooled Instagram into believing you're working from a smartphone and can upload pictures from your laptop (you may have to hit the refresh button first). When you're done, click the same symbol again to toggle back to laptop mode and close the inspect part.
About me: Dutchman, married to a beautiful and highly talented artist from Shanghai. Although my education (PhD chemistry) is very much associated with the left side of the brain, I like to use my right side for my hobbies: music, art, photography.
About this blog: I started this blog in August 2006, just wanting to share what I considered interesting pieces of visual art and music. I suffered from blogging blues for most of 2008, but making a fresh start in October of that year has done wonders for my inspiration. In case you did not notice, most posts end with a small symbol... just click that for the relevant link. All pictures in my blog are hosted on blogger - if some do not show up (the red cross syndrome) it is a blogger hiccup. Right click and selecting "show picture" should do the trick.
About the reconstruction:
End March 2017 I converted thousands of posts to draft, in order to sort out potential copyright issues. Many of these have been restored in the course of the year.
