dhIMG Instagram is a free program that works on pretty much any computer running Microsoft Windows and allows you to download images and videos from an Instagram profile easily. This tool can be extremely handy if you are wanting to backup your Instagram profile and don't wish to save every image manually.

Even though this falls in the dhIMG family (for bulk image saving), the difference with this program is the option to also save any videos that have been uploaded to an (open/public) Instagram account.

If you're already familiar with dhIMG Tumblr and dhIMG Twitter, then you'll know how the program works. If you don't then here's a little run through - with many thanks to @baryntj for allowing me to use his account as an example on here.


- Small program size (75KB)
- Standalone application (no need to install)
- Quick downloading/backing up of Instagram images and Videos
- Always the highest quality picture downloaded
- Set where your downloads goto


1) Download dhIMG Instagram.

2) Extract the .ZIP file (it'll contain two files; "dhIMG Instagram.exe" and "README.txt"), run "dhIMG Instagram.exe".

3) When it launches, you will need to enter *JUST* the instagram username (NOT the full web address), so for this example, I'll put in baryntj. I will also leave "Also Get Videos?" checked too, so it will find images and videos to download. Then select how many images (maximum) you want downloading, then press "Find Images..." (This step make take a few moments as it tries to get all the content - you will get a popup box once it's found everything). Another thing to note aswell, videos do not get counted with the "Max Images" drop down, so selecting 40 may end up giving you 50 files (40 pictures and 10 videos)

4) On step 2, click the button that says "Save to..." and select a folder where you'd like the content to go into. A new folder with the Instagram username will be made within the folder you specified.

5) Once a folder has been selected, then just press the "RUN!" button and wait (this bit will depend on how fast your internet connection is).

6) Once complete, you'll get a box pop-up saying "All Media Downloaded" and when you press "OK" on that, the folder you chose to download the images/videos into will automatically open for you to browse.
