Instagram announced on their blog, that they now support adding up to 10 photos and videos in just the single post.
You now don't have to worry about selecting the best photo, or not posting all of them because you don't want to flood your followers feeds. This feature removes that problem.
The posts look nearly identical, except you can swipe left and right to navigate through the photos/videos. You'll see if a post has many items, if you can see the line of blue dots beneath it.
When you're creating a new post on Instagram, you'll see the new "Select Multiple" option appear, which means you can select up to 10 different items to appear in the post.
One you've done that you press Next as usual, and you can apply a filter to all of them at once, you can still select one of them and edit as usual. At the minute multiple photo/video posts only support square formats, and there is the one caption for the whole post.
This is a nice addition to Instagram, and one I would of made good use of in my recent trip to Barcelona. I like the idea of Instagram Stories, but sometimes I don't want to worry about saving them manually to my phone just so I don't lose them. Now instead of posting separate posts about the same event, you get to show more of your photography skills off in less space!
If for some reason you haven't got Instagram, then you can download it from the App Store.
