How to download social media photos and videos for free

Introducing an easy-to-use, free tool that enables you to download photos and videos from any location on the internet. This tool is compatible with major social networks such as Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube, as well as media-sharing sites. The only requirement is the URL of the public post.

Simply head over to Publer website, navigate to 'Free Tools', and select 'Photo & Video Downloader'.

Note: In cases when it takes a little longer to download social media photos/videos, please wait for the downloader to finish the job or try again a little later. In the rare cases that there are a lot of downloads happening, and depending on the size of the photos/videos, it might take a little longer than usual.

Due to privacy settings and regulations on some Instagram accounts, not all links or media can be downloaded from Instagram.

Downloading photos from Facebook isn't supported. You can only download Facebook videos.

To download photos & videos from social media:

Navigate to the social media post containing the content you wish to download.
Click on the Share button and select Copy to copy the URL, or simply copy it directly from your browser's address bar.

Paste the copied URL into the input field on the downloader page here and press the Download button.

Wait for a few moments as the download process begins. If successfully done, you will have the option to download the photos and videos from the post directly to your device.

Alternatively, you can also opt to share this media on your other social media accounts using Publer. Simply choose the Post to your social accounts option.

Note: Only one media file can be downloaded at a time.

With Publer, you have the ability to bulk download media and promptly schedule your posts right after. If you wish to download media in bulk, you can use Publer.

To download media in bulk using Publer:

Go to the Create page and click on Click or Drag & Drop media.
Paste the copied URLs into the input field on Upload from external URLs and click the Save button.

Once the media is uploaded, you can proceed with scheduling your post according to your preference.
