How to Download Pictures and Videos on Instagram

So you’re tired of taking screenshots all the time and you want to know how to download pictures and videos on Instagram instead?

Sure, there are apps out there that can record your phone’s screen, some phones even come with that feature as well and sure, you will be able to save videos this way, but we like things easy, don’t we?

Today I’ll be showing you how to download videos and Images on Instagram so, if you’re ready, let’s get to it.

Using Instant Save to Download Pictures on Instagram

The app we’ll be using to download on Instagram is called Instant Save. It’s easy to use and it’s free, but it contains ads but they’re not too heavy (from my usage so far) so that’s good.

To get it, go to your Google Play Store and search for “Instant Save” without the quotes. Or just go here to download.

Using Instant Save to Download Videos on Instagram

Downloading videos with Instant Save is done using the same method as downloading pictures.

All you have to do is look for the video of interest and hit the “Copy Link” and Instant Save will do the rest.

You should keep in mind though, some Instagram accounts do not allow copying links on their posts so, no, don’t think Instant Save is broken when this happens.Instagram account without copy link
