Unlike mobile phones, computers represent a different level of difficulty when it comes to downloading Instagram photos. Yet, that doesn’t mean it’s not possible.

First things first. Open your Instagram account in your favourite web browser and select the photo you want to download. We decided to go with a photo from music producer and DJ Steve Aoki.
