Where To Start with Pictures and More

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 intentionally done for the website in order 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. And while this may stir some problems to others, this is implemented into their policy in an effort 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 a number of the IG users are using their smart phones to access photos, IG permits users as well to access it using a computer, which makes it simpler 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 only displays photo from your friends and does not allow you to explore other photos. Once again, this is 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 – if you’re browsing on Chrome on the other hand, isolate the photo by using “Inspect Element”. 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. When you see it, copy the highlighted code and paste it on your web browser, delete everything except the image code and do include https:// and .jpg then press enter to save the photo.

And by default, it’ll be saved to your My Photos or Photo Library and named a random string of letters and numbers.
