How to Download Instagram Photos on Windows, Mac, Android and iOS

We know that when you have been browsing the Instagram stories, or the accounts of your friends, or maybe some girl or boy that you like, you have probably wanted to download a photo that you have seen that they have and you don’t know the way of how to download Instagram photos.

Unfortunately, Instagram does not give you the ease that many other platforms have, such as Pinterest for example, to easily download an image. Not even to copy and paste it, or to right-click on it and choose to save it. No. They preferred to keep their platform exclusive.

But since we know that you are tired of skipping from one strange program to another, both from your PC and from your smartphone, we have brought you the solution to that problem. You no longer have to capture the screen or use the crop tool on your PC, better download the images you want! Yes, here and now. Also in a very easy way, that even the oldest of the house will be able to do it. It is not “Rocket Science”.

How to download Instagram photos on Windows and Mac OS

If you want to download many photos at once, you can do it more easily with the following web tools.

4K Stogram

Let’s start with an option that directs us to download an application. Since you are already an expert downloading app from the previous tutorials, this should not be a problem for you. Just follow these steps:

  • Enter the 4K Stogram website and download the application for your Windows or Mac or Ubuntu PC. It has a free version, so you can use it. But to download content unlimitedly, the license costs about $10 and works on 3 different computers.

  • Attention, on the main page you will discover several types of apps, just click where it says 4K Stogram. This should direct you to the download page according to the specific OS on your PC.

  • If you are Mac, it will take you to the download for Mac. The same applies to Windows. If not, you can click where it says “View all Platforms” and there you will find the one you need.

  • Install the app and open it. Here you can write in the top bar the Instagram username you want to search for. Just like a place or a hashtag.

  • To the right of the bar where you wrote the data, you will see a button that says “Subscribe”, click on it. You can ask the program to download the photos of a certain hashtag or person.

Now, what happens is that the program will download all the photos you want, and every time you open it again, it will update and save all the new photos you are subscribed to.

It is a very powerful app, and it allows you to download photos in a loop with very good quality. If you need to download many photos, this is the app that I recommend.


This option is even easier since it does not require you to download any app. So if you prefer to use a web page, this is your solution.

  • Go to the Instagram website and log in with your account.

  • Find the image you want to download and click on the top corner of it, where it tells you how long it has been uploaded to the web.

  • Copy the URL above in the address bar.

  • Go to the IgVideoDownloader website.

  • Paste the URL in the box that appears on that page and clicks where it says “Download”.

How to Download Photos from Instagram on iOS

If you thought Android was our only preference, then no. We know that iOS can be even more restrictive with many features than Android or Windows Phone devices. So there are also tutorials for Jailbreak, for example.
