More Instagram tips
Two years back, life was simple. All we had to worry about was creating a nice Instagram post and that too once in a while. But in 2016, Instagram launched Stories on its own platform. Borrowed from Snapchat, Stories have now taken over our smartphones. They are everywhere – WhatsApp, Facebook, Messenger, and Instagram. And suddenly, we had to think about sharing our lives in one more way. How tiresome!
Instagram Stories have been quite popular when compared to its counterpart on Facebook. It has some exclusive features that aren’t available on any other platform. One such feature is Instagram Highlights.
As the name says, you can ‘highlight’ your stories and put them in a separate section above your posts. Highlights can only be created from stories and not from the normal posts. You can create multiple highlights and they will always be visible even after the conventional 24 hours have expired.
While using Instagram highlights is an easy job, sometimes you might want to download and keep some of them. Yes, of course, you can take a screenshot too. But you will also get the Instagram options in that screenshot which won't look pretty.
In this post, we will tell you how to download your own Instagram highlights. And we have also taken care of how to download someone else’s Instagram Highlights (you know, just in case).
Let’s dive in.

There are two ways to download Instagram Highlights.

Step 1: Launch the Instagram app and go to your profile screen. Tap the Highlight that you want to download.
Step 2: Find the photo that you want to download from that particular Highlight. Then tap the Seen by icon at the bottom-left corner.
Step 3: On the next screen, tap the Download icon. The photo will be downloaded and saved in your phone’s Gallery.
Method 2: Using Stories Archive
You can also download your Highlights from the Stories Archive section. All the Stories that you post on Instagram are archived automatically.

Step 2: Look for the photo that you want to download and tap it. Then tap the three-dot icon at the bottom-right corner of the photo. Hit Save photo from the pop-up menu. That’s it.Note: In both the methods, you can download only a single photo at a time. They don’t support multiple downloads.
How to Download Someone Else’s Instagram Highlights
In case you like someone else’s Highlights and want to download them to your phone, Instagram doesn’t provide a native download button. But there is always a way.
Although no app exists currently that would let you download others' stories, we found a website that does the job – on PC and mobile both. It’s simple to use and lets you download all your Highlights in one go.
Here are the steps:
Step 1: Open the Zasasa website in any browser on your phone or PC.
Step 2: In the text box, type the full Instagram profile link of the user whose Highlights you want to save. For instance, if you want to download Highlights from @Guidingtechhindi, type https://www.instagram.com/guidingtechhindi and hit the Download button.
Step 3: The website will load all the Highlights from that profile. If you are using a desktop, right-click the photo that you want to download and save it. On mobile phones, hold the photo and download the image. Repeat the step for all the images that you want to download.
In case you want to download all the images at once, you can do that too. However, this method will work on desktop/laptop only. To do so, you will need to download a Chrome extension that goes by the name Image Downloader.
