How to embed an Instagram photo in your WordPress.com post

Hey, it took me awhile to figure out how to do it… The problem is that the instructions from official tutorial video did not work. Though it can help you to find the exact address (URL) of the picture you want to embed.
The code provided by Instagram does not work here, so one of the alternatives is to play with HTML code… You can, but it will be complicated to find pure jpg-links, etc.

Here is a one-line simple solution:
1) Get the link ready (see the link to the tutorial above).
2) Use the following tags (they both work in Visual or HTML mode of the editor):

[embed]put your link here[/embed]

or

[instagram url=put your link here]

Here is an example:

[embed]https://www.instagram.com/p/BEsgL2UNGnS/?taken-by=eugenkirillov[/embed]
[instagram url=https://www.instagram.com/p/BEsgL2UNGnS/?taken-by=eugenkirillov]

Result will be the same. Like it, like it, like it! 🙂
