    Here's an Instagram Tool that hopefully will be helpful to some. There are a handful of others but they have a ton of ads, don't do anything besides download a post, and can be pretty unreliable.

    My tool has zero ads and also has some extended functionality. I was using it for myself, but have recently decided to make it public. There are a few members here who have already been using it and have been pretty happy with it. Note: I'm currently working on the user interface so expect improvements.

    Features (released so far):
    * Download an Instagram Post (image or video)
    * Download ALL posts by a specific username (currently maxed at 50, but I'm happy increase that if anyone is interested)
    * Track downloaded posts
    * Shareable collections

    * I'm taking suggestions for feature requests & overall improvements so if there's anything you'd like me to add just let me know.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    Again, this isn't anything revolutionary, but I figure some more people would appreciate knowing about it. No download required here so you won't have to deal with that, just a web app:

    It would be cool if you could add a functionality which changes the hash of the files automatically

    Interesting idea. Is uploading files to IG with the same hash something you've seen issues with in the past?

    Well at Facebook same hashes are a problem so I would guess they implemented the same behavior to instagram aswell.

    @blackmint Weird. I just tried scraping a post and a collection of posts and it seemed to be working fine. I sent you a PM to get more details.

    * Issue resolved. @blackmint

    As a note to all, if you come across any other issues please post here so others know it is a pending issue and then send me a PM with steps to reproduce the issue. I'll get it resolved as soon as possible like I did for this issue.

    Thanks.

    Great site, thanks a lot for sharing

    Few suggestions to make it the best Instagram downloader:

    1- Increase the limit or set it unlimited
    2- Add install from hashtag, location
    3- If you add install from hashtag or location, then include the IG user or rename the file with IG user who post it instead of "post-0" to "user1" or "@User1"
    4- Add filters (likes, comments, date)
    5- If you could add the caption of the post from:
    Type:
    Source:
    Collected on:

    to

    Type:
    Caption:
    Source:
    Collected on:

    That could be really helpful to know the photographer/owner of the photo fast without clicking the link in "Source"

    Again, thanks a lot, very useful

    Great share man! Thanks for this. Just a suggestion that you can also add the functionality of downloading posts under a common hashtag.

    I'll go ahead and increase the limit a bit. Might make a selection option to keep it lower by default for people who don't care.

    For the searching by hashtag / location, would the idea be: you would enter a hashtag or location (potentially using additonal filters) and the tool would return x amount of posts that satisfy those filters? Seems right, but let me know and I'll work on it.
