How to download Instagram images with Telegram

Here's a short tutorial about how to use Telegram as Instagram downloader. Here are the steps:

  1. Open your Instagram app
  2. Go to the photo you want to download
  3. Select the option “Copy URL to share” — Now you have the link to the photo in your clipboard
  4. Go to Telegram
  5. Open any chat — You should prefer a chat with nobody, yourself (yes that's possible) or simply create a private “channel”
  6. Paste the link into the text field and wait until Telegram detected the link
  7. Send the link
  8. Now Telegram will show you a preview of the photo. Just click on this blurred preview and it'll download the image
  9. Now you just have to save this image
  10. Baam! You're ready!

This definitely works on Android and Windows. It may also work on the other platforms, but I can't promise it!

Tip: This also works with private accounts!

I hope you have fun now with saving Instagram pictures!
