Instagram announced on Wednesday that users can now embed photos directly within websites and blog posts. Whenever you view the photo (or video) on the desktop browser you’ll see an icon for embedding below the comments. Simply copy and paste the code and “presto!” you’ve got the image. Note that private images do not show the option and that nobody else can share your stuff unless it’s publicly listed.
As always, you own your photos and videos, and we want to make sure that’s understood no matter where your content appears. Whether you want to embed your video on your blog or a friend wants to feature your photo on a website, everyone will clearly see that your content belongs to you. Your embedded photo or video appears with your Instagram username, and clicking on the Instagram logo will take people to your page on Instagram.com where they can discover more of your photos and videos.
