Put Instagram Photos On Your Website

Posted on 12.04.2013

Instagram isn't known for its ability to drive conversions (at least not directly at this point) - be they Internet retailer, online publisher or digital service provider.

That doesn't mean that you can't (or shouldn't) use the social media service, just that you'll need to identify some creative ways to leverage it. One of the more interesting approaches I've come across recently is to use Instagram photos within your website. And how exactly will you do that? Doesn't that require some fancy programming? Not necessarily. Check out, a sweet little jQuery plugin that lets anyone (experienced devs or straight-up novices) display Instagram media on a website using Bootstrap front-end styles and modal-plugins.

To get everything working you'll need to do a little work with the Instagram API, although it's quite basic - just looking up a user ID, registering a new API client, and pasting the access token into the code. Check out a quick three-minute video below - you'll be surprised at how simple it really is.
