How to Add Multiple Photos to Instagram Story

Did you know that you can share multiple photos or videos as an Instagram Story all at once? If you were doing it the old fashioned way of opening your Camera Roll again and again to post your next story, now there’s a faster way to do so! 

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to add multiple photos to Instagram Story

Step 1. Open Instagram and swipe left on your homepage

Swiping left will open the camera, once you are there press “Story” at the bottom of the screen. You should see this on your screen:

Step 2. Press the square on the bottom left corner

This will take you to your camera roll where all the pictures and videos stored on your phone will be available to upload. They will be displayed starting from the most recent ones.

Step 3. Press the option called “Select” 

Doing so will allow you to choose multiple pictures and videos at the same time. Keep in mind that Instagram stories only last 15 seconds, if the video you are trying to upload is longer than that it will be divided into multiple stories.

Step 4. Choose the photos you want to upload and press the arrow at the bottom right corner.

Step 5. Edit your pictures

When adding multiple photos to your instagram story you have the same options as if  you were only uploading one. You can add filters by swiping right, add gifs or music by swiping up or adding text can be as simple as pressing the text button.

Keep in mind that these changes will only apply to the selected picture, if you want to edit another select it from the row at the bottom of the screen.

Once you are done, press the arrow at the bottom right corner of your screen.

Step 6. Select the profile you want to share it to and press “Share”.

That’s it, easy as pie! On this screen you can edit privacy options but if you are a brand we are pretty sure you want as many people as possible to see your stories.
