Tools to View Instagram Photo in Full Size

There are many tools or web pages that offer to download Instagram profile photos, but the truth is that most do not allow downloading the profile photos in full size. Even if you try manually, the photo that will be downloaded will be a thumbnail, not full size.

Now, I will show you some of the best websites that let you see the profile Instagram photos at full size and downloaded them.

The websites that I’m going to show below work in much the same way and are straightforward to use. To download any Instagram profile photo of some of your friends, followers or users of the social network, the first thing you will have to know is the URL of the profile photo or post from Instagram.

Instagram Profile Downloader

  1. I’m looking at a post with 3 images (you can click the arrow on the picture to cycle through them). When you click the date, and then past this into the url, it only opens the 1st of the 3 pics in full size and there is no option to see the other 2 pics… Any workaround for this? The url is the same for all 3 pictures since they all belong to the same post.

  2. only way I know how is to do the same process, add code

    then go into the “Inpect element” of the page and change the parameters of the pages to make the image larger

  3. I can’t see the parameters of the other images to amend view at large size. Can someone explain or have another method to view the other images at full size?
