Edit: After half day, my wife’s Mac started having the same problem. I have then applied the solution that I found in the Apple
Download Instagram photos to your computer
Many of us that ever used Instagram wanted to download all the pics we’ve taken and we all know that there is no built-in option to do so. Luckily, there are several free options that give you an opportunity to back up all photos from Instagram and export them all to your computer.
We picked two best solutions – a native OS X app and a web app. They both do the same thing – download all of your Instagram pictures for local storage. The most significant disappointment in these two solutions is that they both download the photos at a paltry 612×612 pixel resolution, although, that seems to be an Instagram limitation and not the application’s fault.
InstaBackup for Mac OS X
InstaBackup (shown in the screenshot above0 is a small application for Mac OS X only.It gets the job done very quickly.
Using InstaBackup is a matter of simply launching the app, authenticating with Instagram through the default web browser and setting a folder to download the images into. One nice aspect – each picture is named as their original upload date, which makes it fairly easy to figure out when each picture originated.
Instaport for everything
Instaport is a free web-based alternative that is therefore cross-platform compatible, allowing it to work in Mac OS X, Windows, or just about anything with a web browser and that can open zip files.
Go to InstaPort.me
Head to InstaPort and authenticate with your Instagram login, then click “Start Export”, and soon you’ll have a bundled zip archive of all the pictures downloading to your computer.
Once you have your pictures stored locally – you can do whatever you want with them. Keep the images around your hard drive for backup purposes, transfer them to an iPad, since there still isn’t a native Instagram app, turn the pics folder into a screen saver,
