"I just want to save Instagram photos" but it's 2017 and Instagram is constantly updating. It feels like Instagram changes itself more than most people change their sheets (which should be weekly by the way). So how can you save Instagram photos to your desktop? The old school method of "right click > save as" is no longer effective. After an update last year, many Instagram enthusiasts who still own a laptop reported that the functionality that has aided us through so many research projects has now turned its back as the social giant steps up its game. It's been reported that with Instagram's new "save in app" feature, they did away with the manual actions to save to a desktop or laptop computer. Along with the advent of third party repost apps (if you're in the market, check out Regrann) allowing easy reshares, there's definitely plenty of workaround alternatives.
