How to Move Photos from Instagram to Google Drive on Mac?

Google Drive is a cloud storage service used to backup photos, videos, files and other documents. You can access those photos and videos from anywhere on any device with an Internet connection. If you want to move photos from Instagram to Google Drive on a Mac machine, then you need to first download photos from Instagram on your Mac and then upload them to your Google Drive account. Once you have downloaded photos to Mac, you can either upload photos to Google Drive via 'drag-and-drop' feature or upload them manually to your Google Drive account.
