Marcus' Instagram Archive / Collection

'sup y'all. This page hosts my Instagram collection. Collection includes all posts, highlights and some stories. Usually updated every few hours.
If you're curious, I use the tool Instaloader to download profiles.
To access said Instagram collection, visit: /media. Should give you a nice little directory browser.
Enjoy! 👉 👌

No longer being updated (2021-05-10)

This archive hasn't really been updated in a while and ever since Instagram started aggressively blocking scraping, I lost interest in maintaining this project.
Anyways, there will no longer be updates to this archive. Files will be available "as is", but I won't guarantee it'll still be up and about in a year from now. Basically grab what you're interested in.
Hope y'all enjoyed this archive. I'll see you around in various forums and communities :)

Update: 2020-09-30

Alright, they're still consistently blocking me so I'll have to use anonymous login. The following changes will occur:

Images will be lower quality (apparently you need to be logged in to get higher quality).
No geotags.
No profile highlights.
Less profiles (as mentioned in the previous update).

Update: 2020-09-29

Instagram has been constantly blocking my account multiple times, even after I do their "security check".
Because of that the archive will not be fully updated for the time being. I'll be prioritizing my personal favorites :)
The currently downloaded posts / stories from all Instagram accounts will stay.

General information:


Metadata also exists for each Instagram post. They're hidden by default, but accessible if you know the filename.
Metadata files are .json.xz files, but they have the same filename as the post.
If you wanna download the metadata for a file named 2016-05-27_23-54-46_UTC.jpg, just replace .jpg with .json.xz (which makes it 2016-05-27_23-54-46_UTC.json.xz).


Location metadata (geotags) are also included for those posts that have them.
They show up in the directory browser if they do exist and have a format of ${FILENAME}_location.txt.
2016-06-03_07-07-45_UTC.jpg would have geotags in 2016-06-03_07-07-45_UTC_location.txt


You might notice a folder named _tagged. _tagged contains posts where the user has been tagged in, posted by other users.
Due to the sheer amount posts that people get tagged in, this will not contain a lot of profiles (if any), but will also contain a ton of subfolders.


If you need to contact me for whatever reason (e.g. content requests ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)), shoot me a message on either platform:

I'd also appreciate if you let me know about something that shouldn't be here (or anywhere else on the internet for that matter). A lot of the media is mirrored directly from reddit automatically.

If you'd like to support my datahoarding addiction, you can help offset the costs by sending cryptocurrency.
Of course, I don't expect anything, but the option is there at least ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
