Instagram is mainly intended for posting visuals and instant communication, however, it can also be used for collecting pictures of cool stuff you may want to look at later. Just like Pinterest, Instagram lets users gather their own collections. If you wonder about how to save a picture from Instagram, you are in the right place.

Back then, it was not possible to assemble multiple posts to look for later. You just had your ‘Liked Photos’ to settle for. Naturally, it was pretty hard to look for an individual image among your friends’ casual selfies. Thankfully, now you can bookmark an image to view it later and you can even create collections among these pictures.

There may be several reasons for wanting to save a picture from Instagram. Maybe you are just stacking up some photos of your ex-lover or you are just looking for different visions about your new hobby. Either way, your saved images will not result in a notification received on the other side. Just like that, you will not know if a person bookmarks your post. Therefore, there is no risk embarrassing yourself and your motives are for yourself. Hence, let’s have a look at how you can save an Instagram photo.

Published by Social Media Specialist D. Batuhan Kurtçu

I, Doğukan Batuhan Kurtçu was born in 1997 at a metropolis of Turkey named Izmir. Computer literacy and social media networks were always attracting me. When I first got introduced to Facebook, I knew it was game-changing. Not just for me but it was game-changing for human communication and socializing as well. I knew the future of human sociology and interactions were getting built upon some free-to-use social network pages. I wish to mention that, back then even being able to ‘like’ something was a massive thing. Time flies. I adapted to it.I went to a local high school and was good with verbal classes as I recall. At that time, I was working for a local radio station and newspaper host as a reporter and designer. Then I was honored to attend the University of Istanbul for a whole four years. My degree was completely unrelated to my career plans. However, it is what it is though, here I am.My expertise is especially for Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and some other social media networks. I am creating content about social media for some years now and blogging is with me since my early years as a teenager.Now, I wish to express and share my information on social media and it's regarding topics as I feel experienced and well-informed enough by now. I am currently preparing content tirelessly for the readers of blogs like BIF, IF, and GlowInsta. I accomplished much by helping people to take their social network matters into their own hands but, yet still, I feel like I have so much to do.Will you be with me on my journey for optimization of conscious social network use? I will be glad to set you free from the confusing dynamics of social media, as we all know, only the truth can set us free.
