Step 1: Find Your Fave Reel
First things first, let’s locate the reel that has captured your heart.

Step 2: Get Ready to Download
So, you’ve found “the one,” huh? Well, let’s not waste any time! In the bottom-right corner of the reel, you’ll spot three little dots begging for your attention. Give them a gentle tap, and voila! A menu of options will pop up.

This is where the reel fairy waves her wand and grants your wish to download this marvelous creation. Among the options, you’ll see “Save,” so go ahead and tap on it. Now, take a breath and give yourself a little pat on the back because you’ve just successfully saved the reel to your Instagram collection!

Step 3: Find Your Reels Collection
Before we embrace the magic of downloading the reel to our devices, let’s locate where our recently saved reels like to hang out. On the bottom-right corner of your Instagram profile, you’ll see a cute little icon of a ribbon. It will look like your own personal reel collection, just waiting for you to explore.

Tap on that ribbon icon, and guess what? You’ll be whisked away to your very own magical corner, where all your saved reels will be proudly on display. Look at them, all neatly lined up like a fabulous fashion show just waiting to be unleashed!

Alright, my lovely ladies, it’s time to take that reel from your collection and save it directly to your device. Find the reel that you’ve been swooning over, tap on it to open it up, and then locate the three magic dots in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Sound familiar? Yes, it’s that handy menu popping up again!

This time, the options might seem a bit different from the previous menu. However, we won’t be deterred! Keep focused and, among the choices that appear, you’ll see “Share,” as well as a little paper airplane icon. Give the paper airplane icon a gentle tap, and a new set of sharing options will dance their way onto your screen.

Step 5: Choosing the Perfect Download Option
Now, my dear friends, it’s time to decide how you’d like to download your treasured reel. There are a few options here, so let’s explore the possibilities together.

The first option is to “Copy Link.” This is perfect if you want to share the reel with a friend, or perhaps save it to one of those handy note-taking apps. Once you’ve tapped “Copy Link,” you can simply open the app where you’d like to share or save it, long-press on an empty space, and select “Paste.” Easy peasy!

The second option is to “Send to” someone specific. If that’s what your heart desires, tap on “Send to” and choose the lucky recipient from your contacts list. Whether you want to make someone’s day or collaborate with another talented lady, this option gets the job done with a sprinkle of magic!
