How to Download All of Your Photos from Instagram

Every day, millions of pictures are published on Instagram. Maybe you follow a travel page and want to download its photos to make a travel inspiration album on your PC, or you want to save a copy of all photos you’ve ever shared on Instagram.

If you’ve ever tried downloading a particular Instagram photo from your feed, you’ll notice that it’s not even an option. This is because of copyright protection. However, most people only want to download photos for personal use. Maybe you have a folder on your computer where you save all images that could come in handy for your next project, or you like to keep cute jewelry ideas in one place.

There are several different ways to download Instagram photos, from using only your browser to third-party apps. This article will give you detailed steps to download all (or single or multiple) photos from Instagram onto your PC, Mac, Android, or iPhone.

Download Your Photos Using ByClick Downloader

Perhaps you want to download your Instagram photos using the easiest method possible. If so, you only need your Instagram account and the ByClick Downloader. With only a few clicks of a button, you can download your Instagram photos. Here’s how:

  1. Install the ByClick Downloader onto your PC.
  2. Click on Choose Folder and select your download’s destination.
  3. Click on Auto Detect.
  4. Ensure that the web browser you’re using is checked. Then, click Save.
  5. Open Instagram and navigate to the profile where you want to download photos. Then, click Download Photos and Videos in the pop-up that appears in the lower-left corner of your PC.

When the ByClick Downloader finishes working, your Instagram photos will be saved in the folder you selected in step 2.

How to Download All Your Instagram Photos via Browser

Maybe you want to delete your Instagram account, but you want to save your shared photos first. There’s a pretty straightforward way to do this. The steps below will show you how to save all Instagram photos, stories, or videos you’ve ever shared.

  1. Log in to your Instagram account on your PC.
  2. Click on your profile icon in the top-right Menu and head over to Settings. It’s the tiny gear icon.
  3. On the left-hand side of the Menu, you’ll see a Privacy and Security tab. Click on it.
  4. Scroll to the end of the page until you get to the Data Download section.
  5. Click on Request Download.
  6. Enter the email address you want your photos delivered to.
  7. Click Next. To proceed without an error message, you should have cookies enabled in your browser. Also, make sure you’re not browsing in private mode.
  8. Type your password and click on Request Download.

Instagram will email you once it finishes processing your request. This usually takes just a few minutes.

Method 2

To download specific photos from your, or any other, Instagram page, just follow these steps:

  1. Open the Instagram page you want to download all photos from. Scroll down to the end of the page so that all shared photos can load.
  2. Right-click on the white surface and select Save as.
  3. You want to save the link as the Web Page Complete type and then hit the Save button.

This will now download the given Instagram page’s content, including photos and an HTML file. Just remove the HTML file from the download folder, and you’ll be left with the photos only.

How to Download All Photos from Instagram on Mobile

Just follow these steps if you want to download all photos from your Instagram page onto an Android device. It’s the same steps we recommend for retrieving your data, including stories and videos as well.

  1. Launch Instagram on your Android device.
  2. Go to your page settings. You can get there by clicking on the three horizontal lines at the top right-hand side of your screen. You’ll then see a Settings button in the lower right-hand part of the side menu.
  3. Tap on Security from the Menu.
  4. Scroll to the Data and history section and tap on Download data.
  5. Enter your email address if it’s not already there, and tap Request Download.
  6. Enter your password and click Next.
  7. Tap Done to finish.

In a matter of minutes (or sometimes hours, depending on how much data you have), you’ll receive an email with all your Instagram photos, stories, and even videos.

Alternative Mobile Method

You can also use third-party software DownloadGram. However, this tool will only let you download Instagram photos individually.

  1. Find the picture you want to save on Instagram and tap on the three vertical dots to open the Menu.
  2. Choose the Copy link option.
  3. Open DownloadGram on your phone’s browser.
  4. Simply paste the link you copied and hit Download > Download Image.
  5. Now the photo will download in your default download folder.


Can I Automatically Save Photos I Post on Instagram?

It’s fairly easy to save photos you are posting to Instagram automatically. Enabling this setting will only take a few seconds. Just follow these steps:

  1. Open Instagram on your device and tap on the three horizontal lines to open the Menu.
  2. Go to Settings (small gear icon).
  3. Tap on Account> Original Photos.
  4. Once there, just toggle the button so that it’s enabled. This will save all of the photos you post on Instagram on your camera roll.

Why Doesn’t Instagram Have an Easier Way to Save Photos?

The platform is strict about copyright rules. They simply don’t allow bulk downloading of photos to “protect their users’ content.”
