Instagram, considered one of the most popular social networks, provides not only an excellent opportunity to publish your own photos, sharing them with friends, but also allows you to admire the works of other authors, sometimes representing real masterpieces. Very often, users have a desire to save a particular photo, but not everyone knows how to do this.
Why save photos on Instagram
The news feed of not even the most active Instagram user is updated so quickly that sometimes it is not just difficult to find a photo seen yesterday or the day before yesterday, but almost impossible. Many users really miss the "Save" button in order to copy the picture they like, so they have to look for workarounds.
Save photos to your phone
The easiest way to save another user's photo is to use the Share function built into the standard iPhone or Android smartphone app. In this case, the photo will appear in your own feed and will be saved in the same folder in which the rest of the photos processed by Instagram are folded. The disadvantage of this method is obvious. Namely - the photo will not only be saved, but will also become part of your feed, and not everyone wants this.
Of course, you can take a regular screenshot of the screen and crop it later in any mobile graphics editor to fit the picture. But not everyone knows how this very screenshot is taken. Most often, this is achieved by simultaneously pressing a certain combination of telephone buttons, and the method that works on one phone model may turn out to be completely inoperative for another. And the resolution of such a picture will be rather mediocre.
To get a more or less high-quality photo, you will have to use a third-party application. For these purposes, users of iPhones and iPeds can install the Gramory program, which will not only allow you to save photos, but in fact is itself a full-fledged Instagram client with a lot of additional features. For those who have a device on the Android platform, it is better to pay attention to the InstаSave application. This program allows you to download all photos marked with likes while watching the feed, after which the likes can be simply deleted.
Save photos to computer
If all of the above methods seem too complicated, or you just need to save photos directly to your computer, you can use the free InstagramDownloader 2.0 program. To do this, you will need to launch the application, enter the name of the user who posted the desired photo in the search bar. After clicking on the arrow in the program folder, direct links to the desired photo are saved as a text file.
It's easier, all the same can be done using the instagrabbr.com service. In this case, you do not have to install anything. It is enough to follow the link, also enter the username, open the photo and save it in the standard way: by right-clicking and selecting the appropriate item in the drop-down menu, or simply by clicking on the Save image button.
