If you're already using Instagram, you know how fun and addictive it is. If you're not, then all you need to know is that it's a bit like Twitter but for images. You snap a photo on your iPhone (Android users will get Instagram soon!), upload it to Instagram and the app shares the image across your social profiles like Twitter and Facebook.
But you don't just upload and share your images, you can also apply really awesome filters that make your pics look much more vibrant and interesting. A picture of your yummy dessert just looks better when you apply one of Instagram's moody filters.
So now you're hooked on Instagram and you're shooting and sharing with friends and family. What if you want to display those images somewhere on your blog?
That's what today's tutorial is all about. We're going to offer two ways for you to automatically post those images onto your blog's sidebar. Once you have it set up, the images will automatically update as you add more to Instagram. Presto!
The first option is super easy. Just go to SnapWidget and scroll down to enter your Instagram username. From there, you can enter in a specific hashtag to pull from, thumbnail sizes, and so on. There's a preview feature so you can see how your images will look before grabbing the code.
You can add the code to your sidebar via a Notes TypeList or the "Embed your own HTML" module in Blogs > Design > Content. We have more details in our Knowledge Base. Below is an example of how SnapWidget looks on a real blog.
