GrahamSnaps will be shutting down on August 30th, 2019. Please migrate to another service.

What's New

Stay up to date with the latest updates/improvements to GrahamSnaps.

Multiple Widget Domains

Are you planning on setting up a widget on multiple domains? No problem, we now support adding multiple domains on a widget. This will get rid of some headaches if you have multiple environments that you want to test GrahamSnaps on.

Introducing the new Collage widget

We've added a new widget type for paying users! The collage widget is a fun way to show off your Instagram feed. It shows 23 images on desktop and 14 on mobile with some images slightly larger than others. Check it out and give it a try now.

Public Instagram search for Pro plans!

Skip authenticating multiple Instagram accounts and simply search for them to add to your widgets. This new feature adds search to the configurator so you can select any public Instagram account as the source of images for your widgets. This makes it super easy to add all your Instagram accounts, without the hassle of adding them individually to your GrahamSnaps account. This feature is only available on the Pro plan.

Completely rebuilt widget configurator

You may notice a few small things have changed in the widget configurator. We've rebuilt it in a framework called Vuejs which makes the configurator work better than ever. This will allow us to easily roll out more complex interactions as we expand the offerings on GrahamSnaps.

Duplicate widgets

When you need to make multiple widgets for your site, it can get tedious to create each one individually. We've made this easier by adding a duplicate button on the Widgets page that will allow you to create a copy of an existing widget. We hope this will help our paying users have an even better experience on GrahamSnaps.

Pro users get videos and comments in the lightbox

A long requested feature is now available for Pro users of GrahamSnaps; videos and comments! When you view your Instagram images in the lightbox videos and comments will load in and be available. This is a handy feature to help keep your users more engaged.

HTTPS support for free accounts

Widgets put on sites with HTTPS will now work for free plans without having to upgrade to a paid plan! This makes our free plan even more valuable, at no cost to you.

A new tool called Campsite

We've been working hard the past few months on a new product called Campsite. It helps solve the 1 link problem on Instagram by giving you a page with a list of links you have complete control over. Learn more over at Campsite's site.

Get $5 for referring users

Paying accounts can spread the word about GrahamSnaps and earn account credit! Account credit is applied to your future payments. How much you get depends on whether it is a free or paying user that signs up. Learn more about how referrals work.

Widget resolution detection

Webpage performance is a big deal and we want to have as little impact as possible to help your site succeed. We've improved how we select which size image to show in our Grid and Masonry widgets. Now you'll get the best image without having to make any changes to your widget!

Widget configurator updates

With all of the new features we've been adding, the widget configurator UI has been getting busy. To help alleviate that we have split the options into groups that can be expanded by clicking the group title. We hope this will help you configure your widgets faster!

Another important update is the ability to choose the background color behind your widget in the editor. It allows you to easier emulate the website you will be embedding your widget on.

Lazy loaded widget images

To further improve the performance of our widgets for paying users we have added an option to lazy load images. Lazy loading simply means that the images won't load until a user scrolls close enough to a widget. This will help your pages perform better, which is always a good thing!

Give your widgets some space!

Sometimes you don't have easy access to the website you're adding your widget too and it ends up being a bit too close to other elements on the page. Now you can give you widget some padding in all directions. Just look for the "Widget Padding" field, now available on all of our widgets.

The social tile

The social tile is another great new feature for our paying customers! If you're using the grid widget you can show what we call a "Social Tile". Tie all of your social accounts in one place and have it integrate seamlessly into your Instagram feed.

Look for the option at the bottom of the widget configurator underneath the lightbox options.

Open your images in a lightbox

If you are using either of our paying plans you now can use our lightbox feature! This will open your images in a modal. Using this feature will help keep users on your site for longer and increase engagement with your brand. There still is the option for users to open the image in Instagram via a button.

Paid Plans now have a 10 day trial

Our paid plans now have a 10 day no risk trial. Get all the perks of a paid plan to test our paid widgets with your site.

If you decide to not use our paid widgets you can cancel anytime before the trail expires, no questions asked.

Open Widget Links in the Instagram App

Our widgets can now open up your Instagram profile and photos directly in the Instagram app when on Android or iOS! Normally a link on your site would just open up in the default web browser, but now images can open up directly in the Instagram app.

This is a big step in offering a product that provides a better user experience than our competition.

Basic and Pro Plans

Now available on GrahamSnaps is a Pro plan! With up to 30 widgets available, any site that you want to increase your Instagram engagement on is easily possible. The plan costs $20 per month or $200 per year.

We now have three plans available, Free, Basic and Pro.

The Masonry Widget

We've got a new widget available to paying users! If you haven't heard of Masonry before, you've more than likely have seen the layout on Pinterest. It will provide GrahamSnaps users with a great way to show off their Instagram photos in a unique way. Go to your widget configuration to check it out today!

Adding an Instagram account via email

After adding support for multiple Instagram accounts we realized something, you may want to add someone's Instagram feed that you don't have access to. You may have a friend or colleague that wants to include their Instagram feed on your site. Well, after the latest update we now support adding an Instagram account via email. Send off an email with a magic link to the Instagram account owner and they can add it to your GrahamSnaps account without ever having to log in to GrahamSnaps!

Widget Updates

The Grid widget now shows your Instagram profile counts (followers, following, post count) and the website link you enter.

Widget count

All widgets moving forward will show hashtags and mentions as clickable links! Making it easy to explore and find the things and people you mention in your bio and post captions.

Support for multiple Instagram accounts

We've got great news! GrahamSnaps now supports attaching multiple Instagram accounts to your GrahamSnaps account for paying users. This allows you to change the source of the feed of your widgets to a different Instagram account that you have authorized us to use.

Head to your account page and select 'Add' in the Instagram Accounts section to use this new feature.

Design updates to the account page

We've made some small updates to your GrahamSnaps account page! Instead of hiding billing behind tabs we've made all your information visible immediately. A small update, but we believe it will be helpful to more quickly view your GrahamSnaps data.

GrahamSnaps has launched!

Our widgets offered include the Grid and Slider. If you would like to see them in action, go to our demo page. If you are interested in signing up for our service check out our pricing.

We'll be continually working hard to bring updates and improvements to the GrahamSnaps platform.
