Note: Make sure to install the Instagram app first otherwise EasyDownloader won’t save your instagram pics.

  1. Install Instagram App
  2. Download EasyDownloader
  3. Open EasyDownloader and from the settings enable “download mode”
  4. From the app select the top-right icon to open Instagram.
  5. On the Instagram app, you should see three-dots right under the photo or video, press it and it will give you some options. Select “Copy Share URL”

After Copying the URL, the EasyDownloader app will also start downloading the Instagram image or video. You should see the download process on your notification bar and the pictures will be saved in sdcard/Pictures and videos in sdcard/Movies folder.
