How To Download Instagram Images and Videos?

Instagram Downloader is a simple and light-weight Chrome extension. Users can use it to save images and videos from Instagram.com.

Install it from Chrome Web Store, and open any Instagram page in a new tab. You would notice that extension’s icon turns active on all Instagram pages. Click on this icon, and within few seconds, you would be prompted to save the current image or video.

Note that the download works only on the pages showing a single image or video. Don’t expect it to work on user profile pages etc.

Update: Recent version of Chrome has totally messed up extension icons. That’s why the icon of this extension now appears on the browser toolbar, and not inside the address bar, as shown in the above screenshot.

This extension doesn’t depend upon any third-party service, and connects directly to Instagram. If you like this extension, please rate it 5⭐ on the Chrome Web Store. Facing any problem or have any feedback? Leave a comment below, or email us at browsernative.apps[@]gmail.com.

    I TRIED IT SO MANY TIME IT COMES UP FOR A SECOND AND DOESNT COME BACK

    @Mari: It works only on the individual photo or video pages, and not on user profiles and other types of pages. For example, visit: https://instagram.com/p/mGJC_BgMKo/ and hit the button in the address bar – it should download the photo.

    Works brilliantly for downloading videos and images from Instagram.

    Just wanted to report a recent issue. All my Chrome extension icons are now showing up on browser toolbar. This is true for this extension as well. Not a major problem though.

    Thanks for creating this.
