Instagram Web Embeds

Instagram today added a long-awaited feature to its service, web embeds. Users can now embed their pictures and videos onto websites.

Now, when you visit an Instagram photo or video page on your desktop web browser, you’ll see a new share button on the right side of your photo (just under the comments button). Click the button to see the embed code. Copy the block of text it gives you and paste it into your blog, website or article. When you hit publish, the photo or video will appear.

Once embedded the photo or video shows your username and the amount of likes and comments. If your Instagram account is private, then you can’t embed your posts.

Instagram has revealed that Web embeds was the most requested feature, after Instagram video which was unveiled last month.
