    How to save Instagram photos on Android and PC, via this simple guide. While Instagram doesn't officially allow it, there are some ways to save Instagram photos on your Android device and on your PC. Instagram has been in our lives for six years and the number of people using it is ever increasing.


    Instagram's Android app has seen a lot of changes, improvements, and new features in recent times.



    But the most important feature is still missing, saving Instagram photos on your Android phone and on your computer. Up to now it is only allowed to share posts with images in messages and emails. The obvious reason is that Instagram makes user privacy prevail. Only time will tell if Instagram eventually adds such a feature.

    This feature is really very important, because all users want to download photos from Instagram. Of their favorite actor, singer, footballer etc., for this reason we believe it is important to give users the possibility to download photos from Instagram.


    Or let the user decide which photos to allow download and which not. Below we show you how to save Instagram photos. We will also see how to do this even from a computer.

    4. Now all you have to do is open Instagram and browse the image you want to save. Then tap the 3-dot overflow button at the top right of the post window and select “Copy URL for sharing”.
    5. As soon as you are done, the image will be automatically downloaded via the Regram application and is ready for sharing or resetting.
