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 output for logged in users, script works best when in private mode/logged out
  • at the moment, videos are NOT working when logged in
  • multiple videos in carousels currently not supported


  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 or embedded posts.
  3. Opens video file on single-video page or from video popup.
  4. Files can be saved directly in Chrome 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
  • 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 :)
