Instagram can offer a great opportunity for getting your company brand name out there and it can be showcased in an appealing and exciting visual manner, greatly benefitting your company. There are many ways of bringing your pictures from your PC to Instagram and vice versa.

If you want to view photographs put up by your friends or some other user, you can click on the Following button and then click on the friend; again click on the Photos icon on the friend’s page. Next, select a particular photograph that you want to save in your PC in order to first view it. Right click on the photograph and select ‘Save Picture as’ or, alternatively ‘Save Image as’, whatever option is available.
