Like Facebook and Twitter, Instagram lets we post a pre-stored picture or take photos and videos by a app itself. If we name a second option, a app won’t automatically save possibly a strange shot or a edited chronicle that indeed goes live on Instagram. You have to activate a special environment to make Instagram do this, though a ability is limited: For photos, we can save both a strange and a final versions, though for video clips, we can’t save a originals, usually a finish results. Here’s how to tweak a settings.
On an Android device, open a categorical app interface and daub a Profile idol on a bottom right, followed by a 3 dots on a tip right. Then check a following boxes as needed: Save Original Photos will keep a photos we take before requesting filters, Save Posted Photos will safety a edited images we indeed put on Instagram, and Save Videos After Posting will hang on to a edited videos that we post.
On iOS, this routine is different. Open a app, daub a Profile idol on a bottom right, and afterwards strike a spoke icon. From here, instead of 3 checkboxes, we will usually see a singular Save Original Photos toggle switch. Turn it on, and Instagram will save a same 3 options that it does on Android: strange photos, posted photos, and posted videos.
To save Stories—photos and videos that usually hang around for 24 hours—Instagram has a opposite set of options. Before we share anything to your Story, you’ll see a Save symbol we can daub to save that shot to your phone. If you’ve already posted a Story but saving it, open it and daub a 3 dots in a bottom right corner. Choose Save and afterwards name possibly Save Photo/Video, that keeps a particular picture or clip, or Save Story, that preserves all in that Story as a singular video.
