Instagram Pictures – How To Save Or Download Them?
There is no direct method of saving photos from social media platform Instagram not like other sites similar to Tweeter and Facebook. This is done intentionally for the site to protect copyright on pictures posted on the said platform. Instagram or IG isn’t allowing their users to save photo of other people from their app. For some people, it may cause some problems but once again, this is implemented in IG’s policy in order to protect its users from having their work stolen by others.
If you wish to download photos from such, I suggest that you keep reading as I have provided some simple steps on how to make it happen.
Step number 1. Login on Instagram – while majority of the IG users are accessing photos right from their smart phone, Instagram lets users as well to access the photos from a computer, which makes it a lot easier to save pictures. You however must have an IG account on the app before you can login from your computer.

Step number 2. Find the photo you wish to save – IG is only displaying photos from your friends and doesn’t let you to explore other photos. And of course once again, this is done to protect copyrights of other photographers in the platform. What you may do instead is, navigate on photos that you like to download from specific page. Click on the grey ellipses (…), which is normally under the right corner of the photo or right part of the comment section.

Step number 3. Firefox – say that you’re using Firefox, isolate the photo with “View Background Image” and then, right click on the photo and choose the option “View Background Image”. Once you are done in such, it will open a new page that’ll show the photo.
Step number 4. Chrome – on the other hand, you may make use of “Inspect Element” if you are browsing on chrome. While such appears complicated, it’s actually easier than what you think. Just right click on the image and select “Inspect Element” which will then bring up sidebar with the HTML code for that said site. Normally, you will find a small section highlighted in blue which is typically in random string in parenthesis starting with https:// and ending with a .jpg extension. Once you see it, simply copy the highlighted code and paste it on your browser then, delete everything except the image code and do include https:// and .jpg then press enter to save the photo.
The image will go to your My Photos or Photo Library and named a random string of letters and numbers by default.
