Have you ever seen a photo on Instagram that you loved, and were so disappointed when you realized that the Instagram application does not let you download pictures? Well, now you can have this capability with Instagram Downloader, which is a program for Windows that will allow you to download pictures that are hosted on any Instagram account.
Instagram Downloader even includes its very own search engine, so you can find specific people on Instagram who’s photos you really enjoy. And do not worry if the privacy options for the account does not allow it, because Instagram Downloader then gives you links to all the photos that are hosed there as a work around solution. There are even ‘Photos of the Day’ and easy availability to all the most popular images on Instagram when you use Instagram Downloader.
Unfortunately, however, Instagram Downloader fibs a bit in its functionality claims. Although it has a very clean interface and is quite easy to use, the application does not actually allow you to download these pictures. Instead, it helps you to recover the photo’s link, then at that point you have to carry out a lot of manual copies and pastes in order to get the actual picture. Additionally, there is no preview function for the photos, and a large number of connection errors to certain accounts have been reported by users.
Instagram Downloader has potential, but it would be a much better program if it integrated its very own download manager, rather than just providing users with a list of links. The way they have it set up now just becomes way too confusing and cumbersome to use. But if you are patient, know a decent amount about managing downloads on your own, and really want to have the capability to download pictures from Instagram, then you still may enjoy this type of software. One other such program that is similar to Instagram Downloader but also manages the actual download process is jDownloader.
