Download Instagram Photos – Due to its excellent photo sharing feature, Instagram is one of the best Social Networking platforms in the world today. People on the Instagram are mostly online, because of those wonderful images shared by millions of other users.

Unfortunately, unlike any other social networking platforms, Photos from Instagram can’t be downloaded or saved directly. Whether you are on Smartphone or Computer, there is no option provided for downloading photos from Instagram.

Struggling for Instagram Save?

I have seen many of my friends struggling to save or download Instagram photos. Most of them use to take a screenshot of the Instagram photos, crop them, and finally, Instagram save.

But, this process is not the convenient one. It takes a lot of effort and does not provide any good resolution to the Instagram images.

For Smartphone users, there are dozens of Instagram photo saver apps available. But, what if you need to download Instagram Photos from your Windows computer or Mac?

How to Save or Download Instagram Photos in Windows PC or Mac?

Generally, when we are on a computer, we used to save image files from any website just by right-clicking on the image and then clicking on the “Save Image As” option.

As you can see in the screenshot sighted above, there is no “Save Image As” option in case of  Instagram save. This means no usual way to download Instagram photos or images.

However, the options that show after clicking right mouse button on the image holds the key for Instagram save.

The only thing you need to do is playing with the codes and applying a simple trick. Don’t you just stretch your eyebrows when I tell about codes?

Applying the trick is as smooth as a piece of cake! Shall we?

Step By Step Method for Instagram Save:

Step 1: Navigate to the Instagram Account from which you desire to save photos. i.e.,


Sunny Leone Instagram


Step 2: Select your desired photo that you want to Instagram save and click on it.

Step 3: Once the image is opened, hit Right Click on the picture.

Step 4: Now, select and click the “View Page Source” option.

Step 5: Here you will see a messy looking codes which won’t make any sense to you. You have nothing to do with these codes.

Step 6: Now, just press “Ctrl+F” if using Windows, or “Command+F” if on your Mac. This will enable a search box at the top right corner of the computer screen.

Step 7: Next, type “JPG” in that search box. This action will highlight the context of jpg (The format of Instagram Image). This way the source code of the image will be traceable.

Step 8: Now, you will need to highlight the entire link of the images that consist of the “JPG” text.

Step 9: Next, right click on the highlighted link and then click on “Go to https://…..” option.

Alternatively, copy the link and then Paste the copied link in a new tab. Hit “Enter” key.
