Instagram Stories have become an integral part of the platform, allowing users to share moments from their day in a fun and engaging way. While the standard Instagram Story feature allows you to upload one photo or video at a time, there is a way to add multiple photos to your story in a creative collage format. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process in four easy steps.
Step 1: Open Instagram and Start a New Story
Launch the Instagram App
Ensure you have the latest version of Instagram installed on your device and open the app.
Access the Story Camera
To start a new story, swipe right from your Instagram feed, or tap your profile picture in the upper-left corner of the home screen. This will take you to the Story camera.
Step 2: Select the Layout Option
Capture or Select Your First Photo
At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see the capture button. You can either take a new photo by tapping this button or select an existing photo from your gallery by swiping up.
Access Layout Options
After selecting or taking your first photo, you will see a preview of it on the screen. To add multiple photos, tap the square icon with a folded corner at the top-right of the screen. This icon represents the layout options.
Step 3: Create Your Collage
Choose a Layout
Instagram will offer various layout options for you to choose from. These layouts can accommodate multiple photos. Scroll through the options to find one that suits your preferences.
Add Photos to the Layout
Once you’ve selected a layout, you can tap on each empty space within the layout to add photos. You can choose photos from your gallery or take new ones. Instagram will guide you on how to add photos to each section of the layout.
Edit and Customize
You can resize, reposition, and apply filters to each photo within the collage. This allows you to create a visually appealing and cohesive story.
Step 4: Share Your Multi-Photo Story
Add Captions, Stickers, and More
After customizing your collage, you can add captions, stickers, GIFs, or draw on your photos if you wish.
Share Your Story
Once you’re satisfied with your multi-photo story, tap the “Your Story” button at the bottom of the screen. Your story will be shared with your followers for 24 hours.
And there you have it! You’ve successfully added multiple photos to your Instagram Story in just four simple steps. This feature allows you to get creative and share more of your favorite moments in a single, eye-catching story. So go ahead and start experimenting with layouts and photos to make your Instagram Stories even more engaging and exciting for your followers. Happy storytelling!
