How to embed your Instgram post for free

Instagram provides an easy way to embed a post into your website for free. You only need to have an Instagram account, visit the post, copy the embed HTML code and paste to your website.

The following steps show you how to embed an Instagram post in details.

If you haven't got an Instagram account, visit Instagram.com (only available on the website, not on their app). Then click on Create an account and follow their instruction.

Now, login into your Instagram account to continue.

Step 2. Choose an Instagram post to embed
