If you are an Instagram user, you may have found yourself in a situation where you wanted to download some images or videos from your friend’s account. Maybe they are photos of something unique that you want to view again or share with friends, or perhaps it is content that was posted by someone else and shared on multiple accounts.
The problem is that when you tap on one of these images/videos, there is no option to save them anywhere in the Instagram application. You can only save items in your own feed. This means if somebody else uploads something cool, there isn’t any good way for you to save it outside of taking a screenshot (which doesn’t always produce high-quality copies). Fortunately, there are workarounds for this issue.
I’ve tried a few different apps to help me save Instagram content. I want to make sure you know about them and know their limitations (it’s important to understand the negatives when using something like this in order to avoid disappointment). Some work in certain scenarios, but not others depending on what type of content it is and how it was shared. Keep reading to learn more!
How Many Social Media Sites?
There are too many social media sites that one can share content such as images and videos. Instagram has become another addition that offers its users to upload pictures/videos by applying filters and effects. Though these pictures may vary depending upon the user’s choice yet sometimes we miss out on some good pictures because we could never view them again once we have closed our account. Other reasons could be that the image has not been shared and we want to see it and download it and then share it later on, but this is just a waste of time. For all such related problems we need an easy solution for this purpose and here we shall discuss some tools which can serve as Instagram video/photo downloaders for Mac OS X whether they are available as web-based or as software programs.
We shall first look upon the web online tools through which you will be able to access these websites from any device so long as you have an internet connection. This saves you from downloading unnecessary software’s on your computer system that may contain malware along with them since generally there are many free applications already present in the market that can serve the purpose.
We shall be looking at only four websites here which are capable of offering download services for your Instagram videos/photos. We will not include any paid site which may cost you some money so that we can offer you free information.
This is a small website with simple interface and can be used by anyone because it does not require any registration. You do not need to sign up for their service or give them your email address to use this site; we recommend this because many sites that allow free download usually ask for personal information and you may want no such thing occurring. This works easily like: you copy the link of the desired image/video and paste it in their website bar and hit enter, select URL type (instagram) from dropdown menu and press submit button; follow it up by clicking on download now tab which is present next to button.
