follow this steps

🎮 Demo / Example

Although you can get the URLs of the images, Instagram doesn't give you the possibility to include and showing those images on your projects (they will be automatically blocked from their servers).
To solve this problem you will get all the URLs and all the images data in base64.
You can easily show the image data on your project with the following snippets of code:

<img src="data:image/jpg;base64, hereYourBase64String.."/>
.example { background-image: url('data:image/jpg;base64, hereYourBase64String..'); }

Check https://orsifrancesco.github.io/instagram-without-api/how-to-show-base64-images.html for Base64 example.
