Embed-a-grams: All Instagram Posts Are Now Embeddable

The beauty of your favorite filtered photo can now easily make its way to a website near you. Today, Instagram announced the release of Web embeds for all Instagram posts. The functionality will work for all Web and video content that is publicly available on Instagram.

In order to embed the picture/video, simply head to the Web location of the image and look to the right hand side. You’ll see a new icon at the bottom (shown below) that will provide the HTML required to frame the graphic on your site. The embeds will include proper attribution and the ability to quickly view the original photo.


The photo will appear once the post is pushed live. It should also be noted that embeds are subject to the API terms of use. You’ll need to be considerate of photographers as it includes the following:

“Remove from your application within 24 hours any Instagram user’s photos or other information that the owner of the photo asks you to remove.”

Some additional legalese restricts 30 or more embeds on a page as well as using the embeds for banner ads/site graphics and more.
