The Instagram story enables you to express yourself and share it with your followers through images, videos, or text. You can also use Instagram stories and add multiple images or videos to them.

Here, we discuss the steps by which you can add multiple images or videos to Instagram. We also provide answers to some common questions related to editing posts after publishing them.

How to put videos and pictures together on an Instagram story 

The ability to combine video and photographs in a single Instagram Story is perhaps a very cool feature that can greatly enhance your posts.

Follow the simple step below for the same.

  • Step 1: Click on the camera icon on Instagram.

How to make a S

You can use multiple photos as your Instagram story on both Android and iOS. They’ll appear on your viewers’ screens in the order you specified

1. For IOS Users

An iPhone user can easily add multiple pictures to an Instagram story without a secondary app.

For this, first, open the Instagram app, then click on the camera icon in the top-left corner to add a background to your montage.

Next, open the gallery on your device, select a picture, and copy it. Then you can use the task switcher to return to Instagram. The copied image would appear as a sticker. 

Tap it to insert the image into your story. You can add effects or resize it as you see fit.

You could also add more such images to make it picture-perfect.

2. For Android Users

The ability to natively add multiple photos to a single Instagram story is currently available only on iOS and not on Android. However, there are a few other options for getting the desired outcomes on Android.

To do so, you’ll need to follow the steps below:

  • Step 1:: Download SwiftKey, a popular Keyboard app, for free from the Google Play Store.
  • Step 2: Make it your default keyboard app from Settings. Also, grant it the permissions it needs to get started.
  • Step 3:  Go to Instagram and click on the camera icon in the upper-right corner of the UI. 
  • Step 4: Next, choose a photo to serve as the college’s foundation.
  • Step 5: Tap the ‘Aa’ text button to open the SwiftKey Keyboard.
  • Step 6:  On the keyboard, tap the emoji icon and navigate to the ‘Pin’ tab.
  • Step 7: Finally, select a picture from your gallery by tapping the little camera icon in the upper-right corner of the SwiftKey UI. 

3. Alternate method

You can choose multiple images in this way. 

If you own a Samsung smartphone, you don’t need to download the SwiftKey application. The Samsung keyboard saves all screenshots to its ‘Clipboard.’

An alternate method of adding multiple pictures to Instagram, on both Androids and iOS devices, has been explained below:

  • Step 1: Tap the camera icon in the upper right corner of the Instagram Home tab to create a story.
  • Step 2: Either take a picture or choose the photo library button and select and image.
  • Step 3: To add more front-camera images, go to the top of the screen and click the Add Sticker button, then go to the bottom to the camera and camera roll icons.
  • Step 4: You can now take selfies with or add images from your gallery to the story.
