Instagram is a different type of social network where people simply share pictures and videos with their friends. It could be just holiday pictures, wedding photos, and party or get together pictures. It could be old photos from the archives, whatever type of photo it is, someone somewhere may want to save a copy for themselves.
As you may have noticed there are no direct methods of saving photos or videos from Instagram. While going through your friends photos on Instagram there are moments you wished you could just save some photos to your smartphone or PC.
Unfortunately, there is no traditional way to save Instagram photos and videos. Of course there are screenshots, but doesn’t that seem dumb that we just can’t save a photo to our device?
