Downloading All Photos And Videos In An Account

Unlike other apps or websites we mentioned above, Insta Downloader gives an option to save all the photos and videos locally. This can be a huge time saver in case you want to download all the media in an account. Let’s see how it is achievable.

Copy the link of any photo or video present in that account, paste the link in the box, and tap on Download Photo. At the end of the page, you will see an option that says, Download All Photos by “page name”. Click on that option. Most probably on the next page, you will see an option to download all the photos and videos of that page.

Unfortunately in our case, we weren’t able to do so. Insta Downloader gave a note stating that the account might be private or the link provided is not correct. But we were absolutely sure that we complied with both the guidelines. Maybe this was just causing a problem in our case and the method works perfectly well for you. So you should definitely give a try to Insta Downloader for downloading all the media on a profile.
