Embedding Instagram Photos

Today’s internet meanderings led me to find out that you can embed Instagram images into a website or blog (click here for simpler directions)! I’ve been embedding images from Flickr for a long time, and I’m excited about being able to do this for Instagram as well, especially since I’ve been thinking about featuring other instagram accounts/photos that inspire me.

Here’s a recent watercolor doodle from Instagram:

I don’t know how long this feature has been available, but it was a great discovery for me. Although I don’t think I’ll regularly use this tool to share my own photos (not crazy about the border and the text around the image), I think it’s perfect for featuring other Instagram users since their account will be automatically linked and the “follow” button is included.

There is an option that allows you to either include or leave out the caption, which I also appreciate. It’s good to have a choice!

Are you as excited about this capability as I am? Do you think you might embed some IG photos on your blog or site?
