Instagram Reloaded

Wanna see the full-sized image or video source on Instagram and be able to download it? This script has multiple options to open & view those items. Easy usage, read below for instructions.


  • IG changed the source output for videos in posts and carousel: fixed with inspiration by @jomifepe


  1. Gets the correct full-sized image (nothing cropped) in maximum resolution.
  2. Opens full size image from single image pop-up, single-image page and carousel posts.
  3. Opens video file on single-video page or from video popup and carousels.
  4. Files can be saved directly in Chrome (limited) or from browser window in Firefox.
  5. Quick access with the keyboard shortcut alt+f (see options).
  6. Instagram pages stay the same, no modifications to the code and functions.


Info: all files open in new window

press alt+f:

  • on single item page to open photo or video
  • on video overlay (e.g. from main or profile feed) to open video
  • REMOVED BY INSTAGRAM: on main instagram feed to open all items (use with care!)
  • REMOVED BY INSTAGRAM: on profile feed to open all items (use with care!)


hold shift-key and (left-)click on item:

  • on single item page to open photo
  • on profile feed to open photo
  • on video overlay to open video (not working if browser plays it directly)
  • on main instagram feed to open photo or video
  • on embedded item to open photo

Note for Firefox users: media opens in same window with alt-key + click


Chrome: instead of the shift key, press alt & click on the item to save the file directly. Firefox: due to the browser restrictions it's not possible to download the files directly.


...are very appreciated :)
