The Process

First of all, we need to download the package, and to do that, open your command prompt in Windows or your respective terminal based on the operating system you use and type in the code

pip install instaloader
import instaloader
dp = instaloader.Instaloader() #I'm using a variable dp


dp.download_profile("sarcastic_us", profile_pic = True)
dp.download_profile("sarcastic_us", profile_pic_only = True)


And with this, we can download Instagram display pictures.
