Instagram has been around since 2010 and both its website and application(s) have seen major changes since then. Not to mention that it was bought by Facebook in 2012. Although it can be argued that Facebook has more features than Instagram, having and owning both platforms is a little superfluous. What makes Instagram so appealing is its simplicity and ease of use.
You have less of a chance to get distracted on Instagram because it specializes in two main features – the ability to share pictures and the ability to share videos in a sandbox-like environment. The text and captions are secondary. Because Instagram embeds their pictures and videos, they make it nearly impossible to download them. Most users just take screenshots and record their screens. There are more efficient ways of downloading Instagram videos and photos. In this list, we’ll cover online tools because most of them are platform independent.
Savefromweb has a beautiful and slick design. It has a truly welcoming website design. The controls are well placed. You can use it to download videos, entire Instagram albums, a specific photo, profile pictures or stories. Each option is separated by a section of the website that can be accessed by the headers on the main page. For instance, if you would like to download Instagram photos, just click on the Photo header and you’ll be taken to that part of the website.
All you need in order to download a picture or video is a link to those items, paste them in the bar and click on the download button. The website will handle the rest for you.
