Instaport will start downloading all the photos you requested into a zip folder that you can save onto your desktop. Depending on how many Instagram photos you requested, it can take several minutes.

Once your zip folder has been created, you can simply download it by clicking on “Download Only.” Keep in mind, since Instaport is a free product, developers always appreciate a donation to help keep the software up-to-date.

PRINTING YOUR INSTAGRAM PHOTOS

After downloading your Instagram photos, you’ll need to extract them into a folder and place them into Microsoft Word in order to print them out.

You can choose where you want the files to be saved. Windows defaults to saving them to the same place where the opriginal zip folder is saved. In this case, it’s the computer’s desktop. Click on “Next” and on the final window click on “Finish” to see all your photos.
