You Can Now Embed your Instagram Pictures, Videos on the Web

Instagram has announced users can now embed their pictures and videos on the web, which will increase the way for you to share your content:

Today, we’re excited to introduce web embedding for Instagram content and bring you an easy way to add Instagram photos and videos to the stories you want to tell.

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.

How to embed your Instagram content? Go to Instagram on your desktop browser, click on an image, tap the share button and copy the embed code:

This move basically brings Instagram video embeds to the web, a move which brings the new video service to the same level of what people have long been able to do with Vine.
