You don’t have to create an Instagram post for each photo or video. Instagram allows you to add as many as 10 photos from your camera roll so you can have multiple photos in one post.

Some users have also complained that they cannot post multiple images in a single Instagram post because they can’t find the ‘Select Multiple’ button.

This problem is most common amongst iPhone users due to a recent update. If you experience this, it is very easy to post multiple Instagram photos regardless of the new update.

If you like posting multiple photos regularly, the best thing is to automate your posts with an Instagram automation tool.

You can use an Instagram auto poster tool like IGSUMO to schedule multiple photos. You don’t have to make multiple posts one at a time.

With IGSUMO, you can plan your posts with a few clicks, and they will go live when you want. This helps you save time and accomplish more on your Instagram page.

In this blog, we will see how you can upload multiple images on Instagram in a few steps.

Step 3: When you find the photos you want to post, press and hold one of them until it adds ‘number 1.’

Step 4: You can add as many as 10 photos in one Instagram post. If the pictures you want to post are more than ten, you may have to make a new post or send the rest to your Instagram Stories.

It is that easy! That is how to select multiple photos to post on Instagram.


How To Upload Multiple Photos On Your Instagram Stories

Just like you can upload multiple photos to your Instagram feed, you can also do the same on your Instagram Stories. It is easy, and you can get it done in a few steps. Here is how to do it:

Step 1: Tap the + icon at the top right corner of the Instagram feed, just like you did earlier.

Step 2: Select ‘Story’ at the bottom of the screen. You’ll find other options such as ‘Reels’ and ‘Live.’

Step 3: If you can see the gallery, hold the first picture you want to post and select multiple photos and videos you want to add to your Instagram Stories. If you can’t find images when you click on ‘Story,’ tap the image icon at the bottom left of the page, and your gallery will come up.

Step 4: Select as many photos you want to add to your Stories and continue to post. You can use other features like layouts etc., to edit your photos and videos to make them more attractive.

For those who still have the ‘Select Multiple’ option, all you need to do is choose the option above your photo gallery and select the multiple photos you want to appear on your Instagram Stories.

This is after you must have tapped the + or new post icon at the top of your screen and selected ‘Story’ at the bottom of the screen.
