Instagram Now Lets You Embed Pictures and Videos on the Web

It’s the Internet age, and the lot of us have some form of website or blog. With 130 million monthly active users sharing an average of 45 million photos per day, a good chunk of us are also Instagram users. What do you get when you put the two together? Embeddable Instagram pictures and videos, of course!

The photo and video-sharing service today announced web embeds, which as mentioned, allows users to embed their cocktail pictures and selfies to the world wide web.

Instagram says that all images embedded on the web will display the user’s handle, so everyone will know you’re the owner of the image. As far as private images go, the sharing service says that the embed code will not be an option. Only public images will have an embed option. Sounds fair enough.

Ready and willing to put the feature to good use? The option is available on the right side of the photo just below the comment button when you’re logged into the Instagram website.

The option is not available using the Instagram mobile app, which makes sense, because let’s be real: who’s going to be willing to embed content from their mobile phone?
