Instagram is popular but very closed social network. Unlike Facebook, which is created to use either through desktop or mobile phone, Instagram is developed with a sole purpose to visit in mobile phones and that too from the Instagram app. So, we only have those features of Instagram which are provided by Instagram developers.
Instagram developers didn’t provide the feature to download photos or videos appearing in your Instagram feed. Neither you can zoom out the profile picture of any user. These features are not available even if you browse Instagram through Instagram.com on PC.
But, we find a lot of interesting stuff on social networks and we are habitual to save them to browse/watch offline and share with our friends through WhatsApp or any other methods. As Instagram is mainly about multimedia, you might find lots of interesting Instagram videos or photos that you want to download.
So, even if Instagram didn’t officially provide support to download Instagram videos or photos directly, here I am telling you 5 easy methods to download Instagram photos or videos using your mobile phone or PC.
1. Download Instagram Photos/Videos using Chrome

5. Download Instagram Profile Photo (DP) in HD
If you browse Instagram through web browser, you will see Instagram DP for a user in a bit larger resolution. If you want to view it in very large, HD resolution and save it in your PC, here’s a simple hack.
Through your desktop web browser, right-click on the Instagram user’s DP and select “Open Image in New Tab”. When the image opens in new tab, in its URL, you’ll see a string or characters: s320x320 change the 320×320 in it to your desired resolution like 600×600 or 1080×1080 pixels.
For example, changing s320x320 in this Instagram user’s URL:
results in the Instagram user’s profile pic appearing in 1080 x 1080 pixels large image resolution.
Now, you can save the DP of Instagram’s user in large resolution by right-clicking and choose “Save Image As” location in your PC.
