How to save photos or videos from Instagram
Have you ever had a desire to download a photo or video from Instagram to your phone (or tablet)? Someone, for example, made a good shot, where you are and you really want to keep this photo, without straining a person with requests to throw him in the mail? Or did you just like some photo and you want to add it to your collection of ideas? You can, of course, take a screenshot of the screen, but unnecessary details spoil the whole look of the photo …
In this article I will share with you links to applications with which you can very easily save any photos or videos to the gallery of your mobile device on Android and iOS. If you save the photo or video yourself, you can use it at your discretion: you can make a repost, mentioning the author of the photo in the description (do not forget to do this, otherwise you can violate the copyright!) Or use the photo for your personal purposes. For example, I save photos to the gallery and organize them into albums like moneybox of ideas, inspiration, a wish card, etc.
Mini retreat: Friends, many asked about the repost from Instagram to other soc. network, so add this information here. For crossposting from Instagram to other soc. networks, including Facebook groups and pages, VK groups and Odnoklassniki, you can try the Onemorepost service, which does this automatically and saves a lot of time.
IMPORTANT! You can NOT download photos and videos from posts, carousels, as they have only one link to the entire post. We described in detail in this article how to download a media file from a closed profile: How to download a photo or video from a closed profile to Instagram.
How to save photos or videos from Instagram on Android
Fast Save for Instagram
This is probably the most popular application (more than 10 million downloads) for saving photos and videos from Instagram.
With this free application you can download (one by one or immediately in bulk) any photos and videos on your phone, as well as make reposts.
Quick Save for Instagram (D Studio)
Another popular application that allows you to quickly and easily save photos or videos from Instagram to your phone gallery.
To download a photo, follow these three steps:
1. open the Quick Save application;
2. go to Instagram and click on the save link (“Copy Share URL” if you have an English version of Instagram) on the photo or video you want to save;
3. Go back to Quick Save and click on the download icon.
Insta Download – Video & Photo (ZN Studio)
This program works without logging in to Instagram! You just need to copy the link of the photo you like on Instagram and paste it into Insta Download. After this, the application will automatically download the file to itself, and then you will only have to save it to the gallery of your phone or tablet. Alternatively, you can immediately share a photo (or video) on your Instagram profile (i.e., make a repost) or in one of the social networks. networks, for example, Facebook or Twitter.
Regrann (The Jared Company)
Regrann is more a repost app, but it can and save. This application is interesting because it works in the background (you do not need a login!) And you do not need to leave Instagram to make a repost. All you need to do is click on copy the link to Instagram when you view the photo, Regrann is activated and offer you one of the following options:
make a repost;
save for repost at another time;
save photo or video to the mobile device gallery;
share in one of the proposed social. networks.
What else do I like about this application? It is an opportunity to make a repost without a watermark. The program automatically inserts the name of the author in the description of the photo. I think it is very convenient and does not spoil the photo itself, plus it does not violate the copyright!
I do not have a device on Android, but, based on the functionality, it seems to me that this is the most successful application of all listed, as you continue to use Instagram and you don’t need to go into any inconvenient applications or, even worse, search for Instagram photos, you want to copy.
How to save photos or videos from Instagram on iOS

Dear readers, I have repeatedly changed the links to applications in this article. For reasons I do not understand, applications for downloading photos and videos on iOS appear and disappear in Appstor with enviable regularity, but on Android so far everything is stable. It can be seen that in Appstore such applications are easier to ban, that’s why they disappear so quickly.
ATTENTION! In view of the fact that Appstor constantly removes such applications, I recommend to all owners of iPhones and iPads not to use applications, but websites for downloading photos and videos from Instagram. See the section below for details on how to do this.
Below I will share with you a couple of applications that, like (for now at least), save photos and videos to your phone. Below I will tell you about another way to save photos through a special website. You can do this on any mobile devices, tablets, and also on a computer – the essence is the same. Compared with the constantly disappearing applications, this method has been working for many years, so I recommend to take it on a note.
