If you delete Instagram , your photos go with it. That is, unless you back them up first.
Download your Instagram photos and create a backup a place is a good idea in general, even if you are not considering leaving the platform. That said, if you are considering going, then there is something you will definitely do. Here's how:
First, the Instagram app starts on your phone and click the profile button at the bottom right of the page. From there, tap the menu button (the three lines stacked on top of each other) at the top right of the screen and select "Settings" from the drop-down menu (it's at the bottom).
Towards the middle of the next menu you will see an entry for "Data download." Select it and then click "Request Download."
The download does not happen immediately. Instead, Instagram will send you an email when your photos are officially ready for download and will include a link for you to take them. The process can take up to 48 hours, so party in and be ready to wait.
Once you've backed up everything, you can delete your account without worrying about losing a favorite image.
