Launched only a few months ago, Instagram quickly reached a million users and is still growing strong. The iPhone only (for now?) app allows you to take photos and apply amazing effects to them. You can then share them to Facebook, Twitter and various other social networks.

Once you’ve taken a couple of photos on Instagram and would like to share them with the visitors to your website or blog simply head over to SnapWidget to generate your own widget.

The generation process is very simple and easy to do. Below we’ve outlined the steps required to get your widget embedded into your website.

  1. Fill in your Instagram username or hashtag
  2. If you’d like to customize the widget, complete the rest of the fields
  3. Click the “Preview” button to see what your widget will look like
  4. If you’re happy with the way your widget looks, click the “Get Code” button
  5. Copy the code snippet provided and head over to your website

Now paste this snippet where ever you want the widget to be displayed. If you’re using a WordPress blog, add a Text widget in the sidebar and paste the snippit in there. For Tumblr, simply edit the HTML of your page and paste the code exactly where you want.

You’ll now have a beautiful gallery that displays your photos on your website. It’s as simple as that!

Please send us links to your websites or blogs that use SnapWidget so we can post them here.
