How to download your instagram photos

So you’d like to download your Instagram photos, but are not sure how it’s done. Well please read on, as we can help!

Whilst Instagram is great for creating and sharing photos, it’s a shame for them to sit on your computer. Now you can show them off in a stunning Forty Niner photo collage (see the example below). There is an easy way to take your photos off your phone so you can send them to us and you can also keep a backup. We have written a step by step guide for you below.

Your smartphone photo library is likely to contain your most recent uploaded Instagram photos.  However, older photos may have been uploaded on a previous phone so you no longer have access to the originals. If you want to go back to older photos, you’ll need to download them from your Instagram account.

There are a number of websites that can help in this area. The best one we’ve found so far is Instaport as it not only allows you to choose which of your Instagram photos you want to download, but it’s also very easy to use.

So, here are 3 simple steps on how to download your Instagram photos.

STEP 1: Visit the Instaport website and enter in the username or Instagram website address for your Instagram account (here we have used the Life Poster Instagram account).

STEP 2: You will be taken to the next page where your Instagram photos will be loaded onto the screen. Simply choose which photos to download by clicking on the image. A tick appears over the image to tell you that it’s been selected. Once you’ve chosen your photos, click the ‘Download Selected’ button to begin the download. Alternatively, you can click the ‘Download All Posts’ button to download your complete Instagram library in one go.
