Online apps for downloading Instagram profile pictures

You can download the Instagram profile picture within moments via several online apps. Listed below are some of the most reliable and popular tools.

1. Instadp

Instagram Profile Picture Downloader (Instadp) is an impressive and free web application that lets you download an Instagram profile picture in a few seconds. This tool has the advantage of giving you a high-resolution profile picture. However, you can find the image in its actual resolution, even if you don’t get a 1080p version.

Enter the Instagram account’s username after that. There is a list you can choose from, where you will find the exact profile.

The profile picture should appear on your screen within a few moments. You can expand the profile picture by clicking on it. It can later be downloaded to your computer.


Although it has the same name as the aforementioned tool, it does a completely different task. In addition to the profile picture, you can also download all the pictures from an Instagram account using this simple and free tool.

Enter the username of the profile and click the Search button to start using the web app. You can then find all the images associated with that Instagram account along with its profile picture. The profile picture can then be downloaded to your computer or mobile device.

3. Izuum

You can also download large versions of Instagram profile pictures with Izuum, another free web tool. However, the profile picture can be downloaded in high resolution and not 152 x 152 pixels. This is very simple and does not take a great deal of time. Start by clicking the ZOOM button and entering the username in the white box. Within seconds, you will see the profile picture.

Regarding speed, however, the first tool appears to be the best among these three web apps.



In addition to the above method, you can also download Instagram profile pictures with three easy-to-use Android apps.

1. Instagram Profile Pic Zoom & Save

You can use this tool to get a person’s Instagram profile picture in full quality without having to open up the Instagram app.

The Gallery icon is also available at the top-right corner of the home screen for viewing saved profile pictures. The app weighs less than 3MB.

2. Insta Big Profile Photo

If you look at Instagram profile pictures in small sizes, it is often difficult to recognize known faces. Hence, you should use an app like this one to enlarge your photos

The only thing you need to do is open Instagram, copy the image URL, and paste it into the Instagram Big Profile Photo interface. If you want to see the full size of the profile picture, click on Load It.

The app weighs approximately 10MB and is available for free.

3. Profile Picture Download for Instagram

This Android app has a 4.7-star rating in the Play Store, and it’s probably the most clutter-free way to save Instagram profile pictures.

This app doesn’t require you to have the Instagram app installed on your device, just like Insta Profile Pic Zoom & Save does.

On the top of the screen, simply type the name of the person you want to search for. Tap the Download this picture button at the bottom of the screen when the desired profile picture appears. You will be able to save the picture to your Gallery.

It is free to download and takes up 3MB of space.

4. Qeek

Using Qeek, you can zoom into the Instagram profile picture of any Instagram user. Like the aforementioned app, the image can be downloaded. This means that any Instagram profile can be searched for and the profile picture can be downloaded within seconds. As opposed to Insta Big Profile Photo, you can search for Instagram profiles by username. By searching, you can find the profile picture, which can be zoomed in and downloaded. You can open the profile picture in high resolution before downloading by using the Fullscreen option.

This is how you can save an Instagram profile picture on your PC or Android. Use one of the above methods the next time you want to save a profile picture.
