A picture might be worth a thousand words, but sometimes two thousand words are better.
Adding multiple photos to an Instagram story is easier than you think. You’ll be on your way in no time if you follow this guide.
How to Add Multiple Photos to an Instagram Story on iPhone
iPhone users can use Instagram’s “Photo Sticker” feature to add multiple photos to their stories.
If you want to make a collage, just:
Step 1: Start a New Story
Launch your Instagram app, tap the “+” icon and select “Story.”
Upload a background photo or a background color to serve as the base of your collage.
Step 2: Tap the ‘Sticker’ Icon
The “Sticker” icon at the top of your screen looks like a square smiley face.
Tapping it opens a new menu.
Step 3: Choose the ‘Photo’ Sticker
You’ll find the photo sticker, which looks like a stock photo with an image icon overlay, in the bottom left corner of your app.
Tapping it opens your camera roll.
Step 4: Choose a Photo
Scroll through your camera roll to find the picture you’d like to add. Tap it.
Step 5: Rinse and Repeat
Do you want to add more photos? No problem! Repeat the same steps until you’re happy.
Step 6: Confirm Your Preferences
Instagram allows users to choose whether they want rounded or square corners. Tap your photos to upload photos with square corners.
Step 7: Resize Your Pictures
You can use your fingers to zoom in or out, as well as to move your photos around the screen.
Play around until you are happy, and hit “Done.”
It’s that easy.
How to Add Multiple Photos to an Instagram Story on Android
Android users who can’t access Instagram’s “Photo Sticker” feature can still add multiple photos to their stories. It might take you a little longer, but the results are worth it:
Step 1: Download the ‘Swiftkey Keyboard’ App From the Google Play Store
This app allows users to take screenshots of the images they want to add to their Instagram stories.
Take as many screenshots as you need to.
Step 2: Open a New Story
Launch your Instagram app and tap the “+” icon. Choose “Story.” You’ll be able to upload a background photo or a color.
Step 3: Tap the ‘Aa’ Icon
Find the “Aa” text icon in the top right corner of your Instagram app.
Step 4: Tap the ‘Photo Sticker’ Icon
The photo sticker icon will appear in the middle of your screen, between your story and your keyboard.
Step 5: Select the ‘Pin’ Icon and Tap the ‘Camera’ Button
A “pin” icon will show up in the bottom left corner of your screen. Tap it and then select the camera icon to the right of “Collection.”
This step allows you to select the photo you want to add to your Instagram story. Tap the “paper airplane” icon to upload it.
You’ll have to do this for every photo you want to add.
Step 6: Resize and Move Your Photos
Resize your photos by zooming in and out with your fingers and drag the images you added around the screen until you’re happy. If you’d prefer square corners, simply tap the photo.
Share your story when you’re done.
