The first one is great for casual users, as it allows you to download images from Instagram one by one without the need to install software on your device. The second method requires an Android/Windows app and is a better choice if you plan on downloading lots of images.

How to download images from Instagram — Android

Method one: DownloadGram

Find the Instagram image you want to download on your Android device, tap the icon above the picture (three vertical dots), and select “Copy Link”. The next step is to visit DownloadGram’s website, paste the link into the text box (long press and tap “Paste”), and tap “Download” followed by “Download image”. Once the download is completed, the image will show up in your gallery.

You can see all your downloads within the app by selecting “My Downloads” or in your phone’s gallery.

The website used to download images from Instagram to an Android device can also be used for your PC. The process is equally simple: Find the image you want to download, click the “…” icon (three horizontal dots) that will bring up a few options, and select “Go to post”. Once that’s done, copy the URL of the page and paste it into the text box on DownloadGram’s website. All there’s left to do is to click “Download” followed by “Download image”, and wait for your PC to do its magic.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Visit Instagram’s website and find the image you want to download.
  2. Click the “…” icon (three horizontal dots), which will bring up a few options.
  3. Select the “Go to post” option and then copy the URL of the page.

Method two: Save-o-gram

Save-o-gram is the way to go if you want to download multiple images from Instagram at the same time. To get started, download the software from the official website and open it once it’s ready. Then just enter a username, hashtag, or a link into the text box above, select the images you want to download, and click “Download selected photos” or “Download as ZIP file”. You can also select all images at once to save time or print them.

However, you can only use the software free for seven days. After that, you’ll have to dish out a one-time fee of $9, which is a good deal for those who download images from Instagram regularly.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Download Save-o-gram at www.save-o-gram.com and open it when installed.
  2. Enter a username, hashtag, or link into the text box on top to see Instagram images.
  3. Select the images you want to download.
  4. Click “Download selected photos” or “Download as ZIP file”.

Alternative: Bookmark images on Instagram

If all you want to do is save images to view them later, you don’t need to download them to your device — you can just bookmark the ones you like.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Launch Instagram on your device and find the image you want to download.
  2. Tap the bookmark button below the image to save it.
  3. To see all the saved images, open your profile and select the bookmark icon (app) or click “Saved” (PC).
