Instagram continues to combine every feature possible; we have seen reels and merged messages in a recent update. While everyone is taking photos, you might just want to view someone’s profile picture or maybe save it on your device.
Did you found someone on Instagram but aren’t sure because the face in the profile image is small to recognize! Happens a lot of time, people are always fancy when it comes to profile image. Furthermore, many users on Instagram (expect celebs and troll profiles) opt-for hidden profile, so unless of course, you’re following them (which you don’t) you won’t be able to see their posts resulting in you biting fingernails and murmuring “is she is the one who sat in the park and introduced me to her dog?”
Again, the profile picture is too small to help recognize someone for sure, forgot about sending a direct message out-of-nowhere (you might get blocked). So how to see an Instagram user Profile image in full-size? Here are the easy steps you should follow to view any Instagram Profile picture in full size:

From the crowd, I found this app named “Qeek” which is an ad-free app that simply lets you type any Instagram username and fetch the full-size image of any Instagram user regardless of you following that user or a private account. However it doesn’t let you download or save profile images, obviously, it is a bad manner to have someone’s image without their permission.

Note: Due to recent changes (especially after Facebook bought Instagram this method doesn’t seem to work)
If you happen to use other web browsers such as Microsoft Edge here is the procedure to View Full Size Instagram Profile Picture on that as well; Open Instagram.com on your computer, now log in with Instagram credential (optional), and navigate to the profile which profile picture you want to see in full-size.
Find the size string, normally 150×150, remove it, and press enter to result in the profile picture in full resolution.
Now you can clearly see who’s in the profile image, is it someone you know? or she with the dog is not the one you were looking for, tell me in the comments.
