If you’re an Instagram user, you’ve probably noticed how difficult it is to save an image to your computer. Sure, you could always take a screenshot of what’s displayed onscreen or peer into the HTML source on the desktop website, but these are rather inconvenient. Plus, if you simply take a screenshot, you end up having to crop your capture to only include the subject of interest. The same goes for the relatively new video sharing service Vine. You could easily set up a video capture program to save content to your device, but that’s far from convenient.
To help you save your favorite Instagram and Vine content locally, XDA Senior Member MohammadAG created two simple modifications that do all the hard work for you. Since these mods are Xposed modules, you will need to have XDA Recognized Developer rovo89‘s Xposed Framework (thread) installed. Once the modules are installed, simply activate them in Xposed installer and restart. And once you’ve restarted, a simple click on a Vine video or Instagram picture is all it takes to save the content to your local storage.
