How To Add Multiple Photos On Instagram Story

Published on 21.02.2023 by Maiko Maisadze

When it comes to sharing a moment on your Instagram Story, sometimes a single photo won't do. Not saying that's always the case, but the whole idea of a Story is to make it easier for individuals or brands to add highlights of their moments for their followers (or non-followers if it's a sponsored Story) to see only for 24 hours. Most users do Story dump for that reason specifically. It's going to be up for one day only, and then it will be archived, not like the post that remains on your account until you hide or delete it. 

The thing is, you might not have the time to add each photo manually, especially if you want to work on editing them beforehand. For these reasons, you now need to know how to add multiple. Fortunately, there are a variety of methods on to a bunch of photos simultaneously. AS of now, 10 photos or videos are the maximum number of the content you can put up simultaneously. They can be viewed on your Story as separate pages. Alternatively, you can use Instagram's built-in Layout feature to make a collage, layer multiple photos on the same slide as stickers, or even rely on third-party apps to accomplish the task. Let's break all of these down a little bit.

Steps to Add Multiple Photos to Your Instagram Story

Step 4: In the order you want them to appear, tap the images you want to add to your Stories. A number will appear when you tap each image, allowing you to see the order. Up to 10 photos can be displayed at once.

Step 5: Tap Next to continue adding stickers, text, or music to your photos.

Step 6: After you've finished editing them to your liking, click Next.

Step 7: Tap "Your Story" to share your photos.
