The monotony of uploading one photo at a time to Instagram is over! Now you can add up to 10 photos and videos at the same time.
However, don’t worry about cramming your followers with tons of photos. It is like a story. A massive download is summarized in a post. The first image will appear in your feed and the blue dots at the bottom of the photo will let your followers know that they can swipe to see more images.
Adding multiple images and videos is very easy:
- On the home page, touch the + symbol at the bottom of the screen.
- Touch the first image you want to add.
- At the bottom right of the image, tap the Select Multiple icons.
- Touch the additional images you want to add and touch an image again to deselect it. If you don’t like the order of your images, long press on the image you want to move and drag it to the right place.
- As usual, tap Next at the top of the screen to edit your photos. You can edit each photo individually or add the same filter to all images at the same time. If you want the same filter for all images, just tap the selected filter without selecting a photo. If you want to edit photos one by one, just tap on one of them, edit it, and tap Done. Rinse and repeat.
- When you’re done making changes, tap Next and add a title. Unfortunately, all your photos only have one caption.
- Touch Share when done.
On your profile grid, your followers will see an icon in the upper right corner of a photo to inform them that it is a multiple image post. Just tap and slide the photo to see more.
How to Upload Multiple Photos from Desktop?
Usually, when you open the Instagram site on your computer’s web browser, you get an optimized version of the site. For example, you can use it to comment on photos, but there is no way to post new ones.
Some newer browsers have a feature that can trick the Instagram website into thinking you’re accessing it with a mobile device, so the posting feature is available. This is known as user-agent spoofing. You can do it yourself – I’ve put together a detailed guide on how to use user-agent spoofing with Instagram with popular browsers, or you can use a browser plugin that does the heavy lifting. for you, ex. Desktop for Instagram or UserAgent Switcher for Chrome.
The advantages of this method are that it is free and does not require the installation of a third-party application or plug-in (unless you go the browser plug-in route, of course). You also do not have to give your login details to third parties. But there are also downsides: not all Instagram features are available on the website. Therefore, there may be restrictions on features like photo tagging, posts with multiple photos, or stories. You cannot schedule posts with this method.
