Over the past year, the SBZ Team and I have been focused on providing higher quality content on our website’s blog. By embedding Instagram images directly into our posts, we’ve received really positive feedback from our readers. Not only does adding Instagram shots add quality to your blog, but it makes it much more visually interesting for your reader. Here’s a #SueBTip to help you embed Instagram images in your blog.
To begin embedding an image you’ll need to open Instagram on your desktop. Once you select the Instagram image that you want to share, click on the three dots in the bottom right corner of the post. Once you select “embed,” be sure to uncheck the “include caption” option if you only want the image to be included in the blog. Click the button to copy the code, this embed code is what you will be pasting into your blog.
Log into your blog and add a new post. Then in the upper right-hand corner of the text box toggle from “visual” to “text”. Now paste your code directly in the post. Be patient, as sometimes it can take a minute or two to upload. Once you’ve previewed the post, it’s time to share. Just remember, unless the post is entirely your own you need to give full credit for the content.
