How to Embed an Instagram Photo

Three weeks ago Instagram announced the capability to embed photos because it was its most requested feature since they disabled the twitter share capability.  This is fantastic because now I don’t have to download the photos from my phone then upload them again to my website.

On the Instagram website it says you will see a new share button but for some reason I don’t see that share button on my laptop.  I do see three dots.  So whether you see the share button or the three dots when clicked, you get the embed option.  Simply copy the code and paste it into your preferred editor.  I currently use WordPress.

When you use this code you do not have to worry about photo credit, a link right back to your instagram profile appears right above the photo along with creator’s username, the number of Likes and comments it has received.  Regardless of where it is embedded everyone can see who the content belongs too.  Another important note is ONLY photos marked public can be embedded.
