    Instagram has a "post notification" feature which notifies users on a specific user's new posts. These notifications show the image preview in expanded notification view in notification panel. The problem I come across is when I click the notification, sometimes I see that the image was removed from the user's profile. However, I was still able to see the preview in the notification panel. Where are these preview images stored in android system? How can I copy them in order to see?

    The images are stored in data/data/com.instagram.android/cache/images, but in order to access this folder you need root access. And keep in mind that the image you want won't be there for long. To open the .CLEAN files, just use any image viewer or rename the file extension to .jpg.
