On Wednesday, Instagram announced that users will be able to combine up to 10 photos and video in a single post. The new Instagram update comes from community members looking to share more than just one moment in their feed—which is great news for brand storytellers and influencers.
Brands and influencers will no longer need to select one photo or post multiple times to share content with Instagram followers—adding depth to social storytelling.
Looking to test out the latest Instagram feature? It’s simple to assemble the slideshow-like gallery in just four steps.
Add photos to a gallery by tapping the plus icon at the bottom of the screen to upload a photo like you usually would. Then, tap the new icon in the bottom-right corner to select up to 10 photos and videos.
Adjust the order of the gallery by holding an image and rearranging the order in which you would like it to show up.
Edit images with all the standard Instagram filters. Note that the location tags, captions, like, and comments will apply to the entire slideshow gallery.
Post! Four blue dots along the bottom of a multi-photo post will indicate that followers should swipe through the post like a slideshow.
