Photo-sharing service Instagram is making it easier for its users to share their photos and videos on the Web.

On Wednesday, the service will add Web embeds, allowing users to grab a special block of text that they can paste into a blog, article or web site.

The service will only be available to users with public profiles.

Content displays similarly to Instagram's web site, where viewers can see the user who uploaded the photo or video as well as an area for likes and comments.

The new feature follows Instagram's larger endeavor into the video realm. Last month, they added the option to capture videos lasting up to 15 seconds long. It also includes custom cover frames and stabilization to fix shaky clips.
