Instagram is an online mobile photo & video sharing service which allows you to backup photos & videos. It also allows you to snap a photo, crop the photo, apply effects and digital filters to the photo. You can share Instagram photos to Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter at the same time when uploading photo to Instagram. Instagram has a 'Explore Tab', where you will see photos & videos specifically suggested for each user. Initially, the 'Explore Tab' displayed photos & videos which were popular among all Instagram users. If you like the other people's photos on Instagram and you want to save those photos to your PC or laptop then follow the steps below to save other people's Instagram photos to your lappy or PC.

Step 1:- Go to & sign in to your account. If you don't have an account, then create one.
