Instagram is the ultimate place for every phone user to post their favorite square photos, edited with filters or not. It is a community where everyone can like and comment on other pictures, as well as follow other people. Instagram is the place where millions of people spend most of their time on mobile phones.
It is a great application but it has some problems that thousands of people complain every day, like not being able to download images or zoom in. We see people trying to zoom in a photo by double tapping, but photos do not work as on Facebook. If by double tapping you make images bigger on Facebook, a double tap on Instagram likes the picture.
There have been different methods to make pictures bigger on Instagram. For example, on many devices you can activate Magnification Gestures, which makes everything on the screen bigger. This is not an ideal choice though.
Pixeltech.dev, a senior member of XDA has created an Xposed module which adds a button to every Instagram image. When the button is pressed, the selected image goes full screen. The module then gives you the option to open the image in browser, share, rotate left and right and even save to device storage. So, if you like a certain picture on Instagram, you can download it on your phone.
The module is simply called “Zoom For Instagram”, even though it has more options than only zooming images.
