What Research About Media Can Teach You

Downloading Instagram Pictures Is Never Hard Actually

Not like Facebook and Tweeter, there’s no direct method of saving photos from social media platform Instagram. In order to protect copyright on pictures posted on the said platform, this is intentionally done. Instagram or IG isn’t allowing their users to save photo of other people from their app. For some people, it may cause some problems but once again, this is implemented in IG’s policy in order to protect its users from having their work stolen by others.

I have provided simple steps on how to make it possible to save photos from such so if you want to know how, better keep on reading.

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. However, you should 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. And of course once again, this is done to protect copyrights of other photographers in the platform. What you can do here is, navigate on photos that you would like to download from specific page. Just click on grey ellipses (…), which is often under the right corner of the photo or on 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”. It’s going to open a new page that’ll exclusively show the photo after doing such.

Step number 4. Chrome – on the other hand, you may make use of “Inspect Element” if you are browsing on chrome. And while such thing may seem so complex, it is way easier than what you think. All you need to do is click on the image and choose “Inspect Element” which brings up a sidebar with HTML code for that particular section. There will be a small section highlighted in blue which is usually 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.
