  • (2022-04-30) Jason Yap: very good! it can download 1440x1800px high-resolution pictures
  • (2022-04-21) Erol Miral: Brilliant! This worked for me.
  • (2022-04-21) Alpha Monitor: MSTTTTTTTTT
  • (2022-04-14) Heather Bicknell: Its a nifty little tool. My only problem is if I want to download more than one thing I have to close my browser in between downloads because the download button won't show up otherwise. It will show up for the first download but it won't show up again if I click on another thing unless I close the browser completely then re open it
  • (2022-04-11) MauriFD 92: dont work
  • (2022-03-23) Chairman Meow: Best one out there, easy to use.
  • (2022-03-03) Prashant Negi: Profile names not added in front of the downloaded file. Example: Instead of nasa_275108528_488110749511285_8980363712912510045_n we get just 275108528_488110749511285_8980363712912510045_n Instagram story images are of highest quality. Instagram post images are also of highest quality. But, Instagram story videos are of lower quality. [It is the same quality as every other extension on the chrome web store, so people wont know the difference. But there used to be an extension which is no longer available on the store and it still somehow gives better quality Instagram story videos. Instagram story images are of the highest quality, same as that removed extension] [Note to other reviewers: Don't ask me the name of that removed extension. I wont tell for its own safety. I have already mailed it to the developer. So just hope the developer looks into the source code and updates his extension.]
  • (2022-02-23) dabo: Maybe it's just me, but recently it's been failing. Especially the download box that doesn't appear in the Stories.
  • (2022-02-17) J Brown: Ability to download videos suddenly went away (download option doesn't pop up, still does with photos though) Tried redownloading but no luck. Still, this extension is pretty awesome and considering it's free, I'm not complaining.
  • (2022-02-15) fatih: its dosent work
  • (2022-01-31) Dario Barbosa: PAROU DE FUNCIONAR =(

  • (2021-12-04) 김똘추: the image quality is not the highest as other downloaders i could download higher resolution with other downloader
  • (2021-11-11) Nour El Din: the highest quality ever
  • (2021-09-27) Adrian Valera Peral: Actualmente es el único que realmente descarga las stories y post de todo tipo. Aunque me gustaría que no hubiese que hacer clic para que muestre el botón de descarga.
  • (2021-09-23) D A: AMAZING
  • (2021-09-17) Антон Бережной: simple and easy work 👍
  • (2021-09-14) Brian Fulda: As a social media manager, this app saves me SO MUCH TIME. I love that it can download the full-res version. In the old days, I used to dig through the source code just to find the full 1080x1350 full size image. This is so much faster. Simple, clean interface too.
  • (2021-08-26) Curtis Barton: I've been reading many reviews however it is suppose to scan and provide output for larges size available out of 4+ resolutions although I've researched and the apparent largest image resolution for IG posts is 1440x whatever number so when I've used this it goes at the most as 1080x or lower...why doesn't it attempt to go for the maximum then on that 1440p perspective?
  • (2021-08-21) Joshua Dwyer: Love this extension! My only complaint is I can no longer open videos in a new tab. Luckily I can still download them, but if you could fix the new tab function, that would be much appreciated!
  • (2021-08-06) Brendan Weibrecht: Simple and works great! Cheers =)
  • (2021-07-03) Lautaro Leiva: Lack: -Open in a new tab in maximum quality. -Compatibility with Microsoft Edge.
  • (2021-07-02) 1911 Fast: Use this extension to ban from Instagram.
  • (2021-07-01) Rem S: This extension is awesome. For some reason, the "OPEN IN TAB" option for videos stopped working a few weeks ago. I think it has something to do with the URL that Facebook/Instagram generates. If you remove the _nc_sid query string at the end of the URL, the video will load in the browser but you'll have to deal with buffering problems.
  • (2021-06-06) Rik Marlon: Until now it is working like a charm. Very well done.
  • (2021-05-18) Radioactive Snake: Just works, haven't had any issue and its slick in how it adds how to download photos / videos.
  • (2021-05-16) Dario Zannini: not working to me
  • (2021-04-08) Жанна Вершинина: Есть проблема - в карусели скачивает только первое видео/изображение, остальные, сколько ни пытаешься, будут копировать первое(((
  • (2021-03-27) T. M.: Initially didn't work for me even though I was on the latest Chrome version. I figured I'd try and close and restart Chrome and the overlay appeared on the image and I could open images in another tab or download them. I love to use this to see photo reference to do face studies at my PC, it's really useful!
  • (2021-03-27) Augusto Castiglioni: All we need is to download files with the username in front of it. Only Inssist and the terminated "Dowloader for Instagram + Direct Message" had this feature. Ex.: username_xxxx_xxxxx_xxxxxx
  • (2021-03-19) K B: Very good! Easily downloads photos in great quality, and downloading stories/videos is very easy as well. I love the option to either download, or view the photos/videos in a different tab. Excellent extension!
  • (2021-03-18) Angel Aquila: Thank you for this extension, but since 16 March 21, the function works 1 time and it's finished. I need to restart Chrome browser to use it only one more time, and repeat again... Is it possible to fix it ? Thankssss
  • (2021-03-17) Willie Ip: Edwin, this is the best thing ever
  • (2021-03-07) iWajdi: I love an open source extension. However, it didn't do exactly what it's supposed to do, this extension doesn't pull data from Instagram it just screenshots the opened image instead, this is how I understood from dabbling with millions of other extensions, let me explain, if I download a photo from the photo grid it the resolution will be 240x240, if I open it its gonna be 600x800, if I download a video story or a photo story this is a little tricky, videos are around 600x1100, and for photos are 750x1333 its always the same resolution for a photo story. I hope you find a workaround for this issue not everyone will care but I do and it's annoying
  • (2021-02-28) Μιχάλης Πυθαρούλης: Warning! If you're a new user, keep in mind that you have to click on the image to see the download button. It just does what it says. Not much to say, really. It just works. I have tried MANY extensions before I found this one and they all had one problem or another. But this one really works. The ability to open in a new tab is really important to me. Thank you!
  • (2021-02-25) Gilles Vernay: Perfect for desktop navigation, easy to display any picture very fast at best size.
  • (2021-02-21) NAOH: Needs Significant Improvement... Mediocre Service & Downloads Video In Extremely-Low Quality & Not Of It's Highest Quality... Do Not Depend On This Extension For Downloading Videos... Still Needs A Lot Of Improvement... THUMBS DOWN!
  • (2021-02-08) stv1: Hey! thank you for this - but could you code it to work with Opera as well? I have an extension that lets me use google extensions on Opera. i tried it on Chrome and it works flawlessly. but it doesn't work on Opera - nothing happens when I click on the image/ video. I would really appreciate if you could help. Thank you so much!
  • (2021-02-06) Muhafiz Ali: Finally an wonderful extension to download IG photos & videos!
  • (2021-01-18) Naravoot Thanyanara: Very easy to use. One thing is that when it's a VDO carousel post, the saving can only save the first clip of the post. I've tried on many posts, it couldn't save the 2nd and further clips. It'd just select and save the 1st clip on every VDO carousel post. If you can fix this, it'd be much appreciated. Thanks!!
  • (2021-01-15) asd asd: i already blocked the invisible overlay preventing u frm being able to rightclick and get the image, alongtimeago, with ublock. i found and added this extension hoping it would bypass the 640by800 limit insta imposes on lowres 768p screens like mine, but it serves no purpose for someone that already has ublock/can just download stories off sites like instadp etc
  • (2021-01-13) Alef Phard: Please add a permanent icon button on corner of posts and stories, that copy link and text caption of post together. (Also button could shows on Instagram page, on each post's small view) Also copy all links of multi-photo posts, together instead of copying each 10 photos of post, one by one I use t.me/WebPageBot and t.me/DetachRoBot to get Instagram content uploaded to Telegram, with these links, thanks.
  • (2021-01-05) Andrea: Useless. It keeps downloading a completely wrong video, not the one I'm trying to download...
  • (2021-01-04) Sean Romero: Its good for downloading some things but insta videos on the post page downloads the wrong video.
  • (2021-01-04) guille fxp: It works perfect for me, and it was difficult to find something like this that works for main photos and stories, thank you very much!!!
  • (2021-01-01) Kit: Great for pictures! Doesn't seem to work for videos though. Also breaks another extension for downloading videos. Would be nice if the overlay appeared on the other side, or if you added use pointer-events: none.
  • (2020-12-30) Oliver Neumann: easy and does what it says... get it

  • (2022-04-07, v:2.0.30) Andrei Orekhov: Some images are saved with .webp extensions but are JPEGs inside
    A few weeks ago I noticed that some images are saved with a .webp extension (used to be .jpg all the time). And my ACDsee Photo Studio won't open them, even though WIndows Paint and Chrome have no problems opening and showing them. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that they are in fact jpg files inside, just saved with a .webp extension for some reason. Apparently most software doesn't have problem with that but some (ACDsee) does. Could you look into it and make sure that the files are saved with a correct extension? Otherwise great extension, thanks!

  • (2021-12-20, v:2.0.30) Ryan Munoz: Instagram Video Post Download Issue
    Hi, Ive been using your extension for awhile now to make HD reposts on my page and it has been great so far, however, I noticed a persistent issue when it comes to downloading specific videos from multiple-video slide posts. If I try to download videos from a post that has multiple videos in it, it will only download the FIRST VIDEO it detects in the post, even though I click the 'download' button on the specific video slide I want downloaded. This issue happens in both video-only posts (posts that only contain videos, one in each slide) AND posts that have a mix of photos and videos. Example 1) there is a video-only post of 8 videos on different slides, if I click 'download' on the 6th video slide, it ONLY downloads the video thats on the FIRST slide. No matter which video I try to download it only downloads the first video it detects. Example 2) there is a post that has a picture on the first slide and then 4 videos after it in separate slides, if I click the 'download' button on the last video of the post then it will ONLY download the first VIDEO of the post (it skips over the photo in slide 1), it doesn't matter which video I click on to download it won't download any videos besides the first one. I noticed this happening for a few months now but I am not sure if this has always been an issue and didn't realize it or if it started happening after something updated/changed on my end, the extension works fine besides that! Sorry this is long I just wanted to be as detailed as possible, please help!!! Thank you!!

    LOVE the extension - thanks so much - works flawlessly always. Only one issue I have is that the highest res it always downloads is 1080 x 1350 . However whenever I google image search the same image I am usually able to find a 1440 x 1800 . Is there any way to tweak the extension to grab the genuine highest available resolution of that image in existence anywhere on IG's servers? Thanks again!

  • (2019-08-16, v:2.0.19) Brian Snyder: I discovered there are actually HIGHER resolution videos.
    Poking around I found a website that downloads videos in higher resolution than any plugin I found yet. I was wondering if you could examine how this is done and possibly improve your extension. Example post: https://www.instagram.com/p/BwCh1pylg16/ This is the link I get from your extension: https://scontent.cdninstagram.com/vp/54409b5505683e50dbfcac76fd70167f/5D581B85/t50.2886-16/57271952_2159270634141642_8356414389733031936_n.mp4?_nc_ht=scontent.cdninstagram.com This is the link I get from the website: https://scontent-lga3-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/ef0b36a2e38aa6a781caae4fd1ff5946/5D5858E8/t50.2886-16/56823097_302457887090614_5109830692083073024_n.mp4?_nc_ht=scontent-lga3-1.cdninstagram.com The difference is your video is link is 480x600 (1299KB) and the other link is 640x800(1634KB). I reviewed both files closely and there is a quality difference. Some research shows the source text "og:video" to point toward this higher resolution file. I've seen this quality difference mostly on newer posts.
  • (2019-01-24, v:2.0.17) robin: request
    hey first of all thank you for this amazing extension! could you make the auto url save optional? or add a persistent download/open in new tab button instead of copying the url on every click? i often lose important copied stuff because i click on a picture without wanting to download it :( thank you!!
  • (2018-11-26, v:2.0.14) A few bugs (and a request)
    Thank you for this, i've been looking for a clean & simple extension for quite some time. Few things though: 1) Stories of some users seem to be buggy, and the button shows above the story, instead of being on it. I.e. it looks like this: https://imgur.com/a/We6yXRi I've actually tried it with the different extension, and this bug persists even there with the exact same people. (Though the download button simply doesn't show there, instead of just bugging out on top). 2) Different variation of a seemingly similar problem. For some people it shows like this: https://imgur.com/a/xYAxsAM Again, similar problem, but different button placement. And again it's a common thing for a few extensions. So it seems to be an Instagram problem. 3) Is it possible to retain the original Instagram filename by default while saving?
