How to download Instagram Photos?

Downloading Instagram photos is quite simpler than downloading videos. You don’t even need a tool/software to download photos from Instagram. This can be done by using your phone or computer’s feature. Please follow the below guide to download and save Instagram photos:

  • Open Instagram app or website on your computer or smartphone
  • View the desired photo you want to save
  • Take a screenshot on your smartphone and crop the picture. Make sure to crop the status bar and username
