Oh yeah, everyone uses Instagram! 

I seriously don't think any of you will need an introduction to Instagram. But, for those who don't know, click here

What disappoints is that, Instagram does not allow it's users to download photos or videos. If you accidentally deleted your Instagram albums or just wants to download copies of your old photos you uploaded on Instagram or if you just love to download your favorite photos from your favorite users or other users for fun and admiration, it is a little tricky!

But, everything has a solution. And, I am here with a tutorial for the same. Let's get started!
1. Log on to you Instagram account. 

2. Click the photo you want to download. It can be yours or you favorite user's.

3. Right click the image and select 'Inspect Elements'.

4. When you click it, you will see a box like this (below). Search the "JPG" link for your image.

5. Click the link and the image will appear in the box (below).

6. Right click on the image and click 'Open image in new tab'

7. Image will open in a new tab. Right Click on the image and click "Save Image As". 

8. Your image will be downloaded. You can easily view the image right now! :) :)

For the videos, you just have to follow the same steps. Only difference is:

1. Search for the "MP4" link for the video in the box.

2. Click the link. The video will open in a new tab. Click "Save Video as".

3. Your Video will be downloaded and you can watch it whenever you want! :) :D 

I hope you guys found it easy. Do let me know you how you liked the tutorial on the comments below! Do you have another way to download the Instagram photos? Let me know about it too!

P.S: The tutorial  is not only for Instagram but for all Web Pages that don't provide the download image option.. ;-)
