One thing that Instagram does not let you do is enlarging one’s profile picture no matter if you are following them or not. At times, this could be annoying and frustrating especially when you have a few friends who have the same identical usernames which makes it very difficult to tell them apart.
Aside from that, most Instagram users, view their Instagram on their smartphones and most of the times you would come access profile pictures which comes with 50×50 pixel picture and unfortunately, you cannot even zoom or click them. Though this is the case, your picture or image would still be uploaded in full resolution and the API could still be used to retrieve the image.
In this article, we will not deal with any code but rather we shall use three simple methods and they are the following:
1. Enlarge Instagram Profile Picture on Desktop
Though Instagram is created for mobile use, you will still be able to access it on your desktop browser. Through your desktop browser, you will also be able to look at profile picture of any account you wish to check. Unfortunately, you would only be able to see the image in compressed view of 150px wide. Hence, we suggest to use instadp.com. This site could show you HD image using Instagram API. Aside from that, this site could also be used on your mobile as well.
For you to view a profile picture of an Instagram user, all you need to do is the following:
– Go to instadp.com on your web browser
– Enter the Instagram username of the profile picture you wish to view
– Click on the profile you wish to see in high definition
If you wish, you could also schedule posts and view insights on your desktop.
