How To Add Multiple Photos To An Instagram Story


Today I'm going to share with you how to add multiple photos to an Instagram story.


The first thing you'll want to do is add the first photo or video clip to your Instagram story, so you'll click on your photo or logo with the plus sign.

Next, on the bottom of the screen, you can choose to record video or swipe down to reveal your photos and videos that you've recorded in the last 24 hours.  For the purposes of this tutorial, I've got a short series of photos that I want to add. I'm going to start with adding the first photo.


How To Add Multiple Photos In Instagram Story



Now while the first photo or video is uploading, click on the story (your profile photo with the plus sign), next you'll want to click on your logo in the upper left-hand corner. That's going to open up the camera.


Now just click your camera and select the second clip that you want to add to your Instagram story.





Repeat these steps until you have all of your photos in your story.  Just be sure to make sure you upload them in the correct order.


The bars at the top of the screen represent how many clips you have in your Instagram story and the time shown indicates how long the story has been uploaded, beginning with the first clip.  Keep in mind your story will expire in 24 hours.


There you have it, that's how to add multiple photos to an Instagram story.
