You can embed an image or video from Instagram on your blog easily.

First, copy the image’s URL from your web browser’s address bar while viewing the image:

In your post/page editor, paste the URL where you would like it to appear. Make sure that the URL is on its own line.

For example, this text and URL:

url-on-own-line

will look like this in a post:

By default, the URL embeds the largest size of the image available, which is 612px wide. Video embeds look very similar but will show the triangle “play” symbol:

You can also wrap an Instagram URL in shortcode, replacing LINK with the URL:

[instagram url=LINK]

This shortcode achieves the same result as simply posting the URL, but does not require the URL to be on its own line. For example, you can display images side by side, and also control the width of an image by specifying it at the end of the shortcode.

For example, this text and shortcode:

Screenshot_5_24_13_11_42_AM

embeds two smaller images into the post, side by side, instead:

Each image is automatically linked to the URL of the Instagram page, so when you click the image on your blog, the viewer is taken to its original, full-size version.
