How To Download Instagram Photos to Your PC

October 2017


This tutorial will teach you how to download Instagram photos to your computer. While the social network doesn't offer the ability to download photos, there's a simple workaround that uses Google Chrome's DevTools to retrieve full-size images from the social network.

Download Instagram Photos with Google Chrome

Open Google Chrome, sign in to Instagram, and browse for the desired photo(s). Once found, click the Customize and Control Google Chrome menu (small button with three horizontal stripes) and select More Tools > Developer Tools.

Next, go to Resources > Frames > Instagram.com > Images and search for the photo(s) you want to download:


Right-click on the photo and select Open in a new tab. The selected photo will open in a new browser tab. Right-click on the photo and select Save As to download it to your computer.

Download Instagram Photos with DCinsta

In addition to Google Chrome, you may also use DCinsta to download your Instagram photos to your PC. First access the DCinsta page, enter the URL of the photo you would like to download, and select Go.



The photo will then load on a new page. Select the Download button that appears at the bottom of the image to download it to your PC.
