Instagram is finally letting ordinary users share multiple photos in a single post.

This should provide much more scope for experimentation.

Until now, Instagram users have been limited to posting just one photo or video at a time. This meant you would spend ages selecting the perfect shot to sum up your day, dinner, party, engagement, or whatever. Thankfully, this time-wasting triviality is no longer necessary.

Using Instagram’s New Carousel Posts

With its latest update, rolling out on Android and on iOS over the next few weeks, Instagram has added support for photo albums. Instagram actually calls them carousels, but they’re really just albums, albeit albums limited to just 10 photos or videos. It’s an arbitrary number, but one which avoids overkill.

You can upload multiple photos or videos on Instagram by selecting the cascading square icon. From here you just add the photos or videos you want grouped together in one post. You can then rearrange the order they’ll be displayed in by dragging and dropping each one into position.

You can add a caption and location tags as usual, but these will be applied to all of the photos or videos in that post. However, you can tag friends in individual photos or videos, and you also have the option of applying filters How Instagram Filters Work, And Can You Tell The Difference?

Share More Photos of Your Life

It’s a wonder Instagram took so long to offer this feature. Especially as it’s been available to advertisers for some time. Some people may think it sullies the simple beauty of Instagram, but we suspect most people will appreciate the opportunity to share more photos of their life.

Are you an avid Instagram user? Are you likely to start posting more than one photo or video at a time? How can you see yourself using this new feature? Do you think it’s a change for the better or a change for the worse? Please let us know in the comments below!

    Yes, but we can prepare offline and than to post, but does anyone know which dimensions are ok for square multipa? I think it downsize images to 750/750px? and videos are reduced to 640/640max, that's a bit bad in this great extension...

    How do we add this feature to Instagram? Is it only for newer iPhone? I have iPhone 6S and I do not have the option to post multiple photos

      I don't have the option either. It works for one Instagram account and not the other.
