How To Save Down Instagram Story UGC

In Social, Services

If you’d been battling with UGC until we taught you how to save UGC photos and video from Instagram as single posts and as carousels, you’ll love to know how to pull Instagram stories in a similar way.

Luckily, this one’s pretty easy and doesn’t require diving through any code with which you’ll be unfamiliar.

  1. Use Google Chrome, or work out how to add Chrome extensions to your browser of choice.
  2. Download the IG Stories for Instagram extension for Chrome.

  4. Log into an account of your choice.
  5. Open up a Story.

Note on UGC: Don’t forget that Instagram stories and posts are copyrighted material so use this knowledge for good and not evil. Ideally you’re just saving stories for reporting purposes. Use of Feed posts is usually fine if it stays on social and it’s credited. If you’re taking it off social, slide into those DMs and negotiate terms.
