Now that Instagram has been officially made available for Android, you might as well know some neat and decent tricks that will help you manage your filtered photos. Of course, the photo editing app does allow you to save your images to your desktop or laptop but you have to go through a series of steps like opening your phone’s gallery as you transfer your files via Bluetooth connection. But in this post, we will teach you how to export your Instagram photos to your computer without the need for you to go through all these troubles. You just have to keep your focus on.
Option 1 – Instaport
Instaport is an online tool that will allow you to copy or transfer your Instagram photos to your computer’s local hard drive. It defines its service as ‘a simple way to export or backup all your Instagram photos in a single zip file’. To use this tool, simply open your web browser and go to instaport.me. Just connect your Instagram account to Instaport and voila! You’re all set to export your photos in a zip file. There’s no need for you to select your images from file to file. Moreover, you can avail this unique service for free. In the near future, the tool promises to provide you with options to export your Instagram photos to Facebook and Flicker.
Option 2 – InstaBackup
Just like Instaport, InstaBackup gives you the ability to download and backup your Instagram photos to your Mac. There’s no need for you to supply your personal information. This tool will only ask for your password. To be able to use this tool, you need to download the app and have it installed on your Mac. You can get the app from here but do keep in mind that this will only work if your Mac is currently running on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion or 10.6 Snow Leopard. Those with Mountain Lion will need to authenticate the app using Firefox or Chrome. Also, do not forget to give your credits to David Smith for providing you with a free application.
Option 3 – Copygram
Last but not the least is Copygram. No, it’s not Moneygram – it’s ‘Copygram’. What’s even more amazing with this service is that you don’t need to have an Instagram account to be able to view your favorite Instagram profiles. Just key in their profile username and you will be able to take a peek of their beautiful and inspiring photos. But what highlights this service apart from others is that you can easily backup your Instagram photos by simply clicking a few buttons. First of all, you will need to go to this link. Provide your Instagram name and email then select the number of photos that you want to download. After that, press the ‘Backup Now’ button and you’re good to go!
It’s a good thing to know that such services exist to help you export and backup your Instagram photos. Through this, you will be able to view your images offline without the need to access the app on your phone.
