How to save Instagram photos you’ve created to your phone
Instagram makes it very easy for you to save photos that you’ve captured, filtered, and edited in the Instagram app to your phone’s photo library.
Open the Instagram app, and head over to your profile by tapping the person-shaped icon at the bottom of your screen.
Once the menu appears as a pop-up, select to go into “Settings,” it’s the first option at the top of the list. Next tap on the “Account” option, then finally hit up the “Original Photos” option which will show if you’re using an iOS device. Android users will see the option for “Original Posts”.
The Instagram app now gives you the option to automatically save down your Instagram imagery. Hit the blue toggle to “Save Original Photos/Posts.”
Now that this option is turned on, every photo you post on Instagram will also be saved to your phone’s photo library.
