View Instagram on the Web Online Connect Instagram to Facebook Tools for Posting From the Desktop Tweet Share Email Instagram stories are great for sharing photos and video clips with your followers. When you want to post multiple images or videos to your story, uploading images one by one takes time. Instagram allows you to select multiple photos and videos from your device's library or gallery and post everything in one go. You can also edit each one before sharing those pictures with the world. We show you how to do it all below. These instructions apply to the iOS and Android Instagram apps. However, the screenshots below use the Android app. iOS users can follow along, although there may be some minor differences between the two apps. How to Add Multiple Photos or Videos to Your Instagram Story Selecting multiple photos or videos to share all at once to your Instagram stories saves time and effort. Here's how to do it: Open the Instagram app and tap Your Story in the upper-left corner. You can also swipe right from your home feed or tap your profile picture from your profile tab to go to the Stories tab. Tap the library/gallery icon in the lower-left corner to see the most recently taken photos and videos on your device. Optionally, select a media folder using the drop-down button in the upper-left corner. If you plan to upload a mix of photos and videos at once, leave it at your device's default media folder. If you want to select multiple videos, choose your videos folder to filter out all the photos—making it easier to find the clips you want. Tap the Select Multiple button. Tap the photos or videos you want to add to your story. The circle in the upper-right corner of each thumbnail turns blue. A number appears in it, representing the order in which the images post. If you change your mind about adding a photo or video or want to change the order, deselect the photo or video by tapping it again. You can only post up to 10 photos and videos at a time. Once you're happy with your selection, tap Next. Make optional edits to your photos or videos by tapping the sticker, drawing, or text buttons. Tap any photo or video shown in the selection tool at the bottom of the screen to move between editing each one separately. Tap Next. Tap the blue Share button beside Your Story to post it or share it with Close Friends only. Why Share Multiple Photos or Videos to an Instagram Story? If you want to post three videos and seven photos to your Instagram story, select the ones you want from your library, gallery, or other media folder. Then, you can immediately upload and post the images with a single tap. Posting this way is an excellent solution if: You want to capture multiple scenes or clips throughout your day.You don't have time to open Instagram and post directly to it.You're not sure if the photos or videos you took are story-worthy, so you'd like to decide which to post later.You want to choose only the best pictures or videos to post to your stories.You find yourself in a location with a poor internet connection and can't post at all.
