Overview

This extension makes it easier to share photos on instagram web.

The web version of instagram does not let you copy an image to clipboard or open it in a new tab in any practical way. That's why I created this simple extension - to make it more convenient to share an instagram image across the web. This extension works especially well with Discord and slack, where you can copy the image link and paste it into the chat, and it will automatically convert the link to an image. Instagram's default share option is very unreliable. Sometimes it shows a preview, and sometimes it doesn't - making you have to click the link and go to instagram to view it. Currently the functionality is only applied when viewing in feed mode or a single image. Does not support grid view as of yet. Commands: Ctrl / CMD + left click = copy link to image Shift + left click = open image in new tab

Hello! I'm not entirely sure I understand the problem. But you say you're right clicking images. I assume this is directly on instagram? If so, that is correct, you cannot right click an image to copy it on Instagram, which is why I made this extension :) Depending on if you are on Mac or Windows the controls are a little different. ctrl + left click for windows or cmd + left click for mac = Copy the url of the image. Pasting this into messaging services like Discord will embed the image, just like from Imgur. If embedding works depends entirely on the chat service's embedding implementation, but for discord it works! shift + left click = Open the image in a new tab. Here you can do whatever you want with it just like any other image opened in a tab! Hope this helps. If not, feel free to use the contact button and I'll try my best to help you out!
