Instagram - How do I save a picture

  wee eddie 12:12 05 Mar 2019

It's been bugging me for years but I have never really wanted to save one that much. Now I do.

I can Right click and it allows me to print it. but I can't find a "Save" anywhere

wee eddie,

I am not an Instagram user, but as you have a print option off the Right Click, would Print to PDF be a possible solution to your problem?

If you're viewing on your phone or tablet there are apps available that can download the photos.

I've used iSave Pro in the past. I cannot fully vouch for the free version which appears functionally the same but with ads. It will get the photos but the ads might be annoying.

Peter thanks - Tried that, not an Option available

Get the url of the pic from the 'markup' then use 'save as'. Full instructions click here

Mind focused. I've found a Work Around

Select All > Copy > open Word > Paste > select the desired picture > select Save As. The Word document is large but as you do not plan to save it, that's no matter

Why not save in Paint?

How would I get it from Instagram to Paint. Paint appears to have no way of importing other than "paste"

If there was any way of Copying it, in Instagram, I wouldn't have the problem
