Bringing Instagram photos into Discord channels

So you have a Discord community and you would like to pull Instagram photos into your channels. I have a Discord server for my Twitch community and I wanted my Instagram photos to show up in my #instagram channel for folks that are not on Instagram. For this tutorial I am just going to show you what I did to bring Instagram photos into Discord using IFTTT which stands for If This Then That. First thing we are going to do is go to the Discord channel you want to bring Instagram photos into, here we are using “#instagram”. Click on the settings cog by the channel name.

Select “Webhooks” on the left tab, then click on “Create Webhook”.

In the “EDIT WEBHOOK” dialog box, put whatever you would like under “NAME”, in the “CHANNEL” selection be sure it’s the channel you want the tweet to show up in. “WEBHOOK ICON” is an image that will show up in the post, I just used the Instagram logo. Then copy the “WEBHOOK URL” to notepad. We will use this later.

Now we will will use IFTTT to link Instagram to our Webhook. Visit http://ifttt.com and create an account. Now link your Instagram to the Instagram service. Now it is time to create your applet that will pass the Instagram photo to Discord. Click on “Create”.

Click on “+this”

Click on the Instagram service (you should have already linked your Instagram to this service).

Now we want to choose a trigger. Click on “Any new photo by you” this tells IFTTT when to activate the Instagram post.

Now click on “+that”.

Now we will choose “Webhooks” as our action service.

It’s the only thing we can select so click on “Make a web request”.

Here is where that URL we copied to notepad is useful, copy it in the URL field, then select “Post”.

Our Content Type is going to be “application/json”.

Now copy the code below into the “Body” field then click on “Create action”

{“content”: “{{Url}}”}

Now you can name your Applet whatever you want. Now turn off the notifications. Hit “Finish” and you have created your IFTTT Applet.

Here is what the final product looks like for me in Discord.
