    By scrolling through the Instagram feed, did you find a post containing a photo that you particularly liked and would like to save it so that you always have an eye on it? If so, know that you can use the "Save to collection" function present on the social network.

    If, on the other hand, you intend to save photos from Instagram locally (therefore in the Gallery of your smartphone and not in the "Saved items" section of your Instagram account), you can do it by doing one screenshot of the content of your interest.

    First, then, log into your Instagram account via the official app for Android or iOS (in case you haven't done so yet), locate the photo of your interest and make a screen capture of the content in question by following the instructions you find below.

    To use this service, all you have to do is connect to its main page, paste the URL of the photo you want to download (which you can get by starting the Instagram app, pressing the button ... placed in correspondence with the content of your interest and selecting the item Copy link from the menu that opens) in the appropriate text field and press the button download for free per due turn consecutive.
