So, by setting up an account on one of such websites, and then sharing the link to this account on your School blog, website or social pages, you can give viewers access to all your School instagram pictures on their computers. It’s always good to have this account url or social button linked to your School’s blog, website, and social networking accounts. With a single click, readers will be able to access all your School pictures on Instagram.
