How do I get a link (URL) to a photo or video?

You can get a link to photos and videos that have been shared publicly. If an account is set to private, you won't be able to copy a link to any of their posts.

To get a link to a post in the iOS app:

  1. Tap above the post
  2. Tap Copy Link to save the link.

You can also get the link by viewing the post on the web. To get a URL from the web:

  1. Open your web browser.
  2. Go to For example, if the username is "johnsmith," type in as the URL.
  3. Click the post you want to save and copy the link at the top of your browser.
