How do I save Instagram photos to my phone?

You can save photos that you've filtered and edited on Instagram to your phone. To save your photos to your phone:

  1. Go to your profile and tap .
  2. Tap Settings > Account > Original Photos (iOS) or Original Posts (Android).
  3. Tap next to Save Original Photos (iOS) or Save Original Posts (Android) to turn it on.

When you have Save Original Photos or Save Original Posts turned on, every photo you post on Instagram will also be saved to your phone's library.

Note: People using Instagram on Android may see a delay in photos appearing in their phone’s Instagram photo album.
