How to Add Multiple Images to a Single Instagram Story

There are several ways to add multiple images to your Instagram Story, whether you post them one at a time or all at once. While you can use various photo editing apps to create collages, Instagram has a built-in feature in the Story sticker menu to let you do just that. With this feature, you can add as many photos to your Instagram story as you want.

In this guide, we will show you how to add multiple images to your Instagram story on different devices.



How to Add Multiple Photos in One Instagram Story on iPhone

While you have the option to post multiple images as separate stories at once, you can also integrate them into a single story. This new feature is hidden in the Stories sticker section, so you might not even know it. It's called the photo sticker, and if you don't have it, check if you're using the latest Instagram update.

Before adding one or more photos to your Instagram story, decide what you will use for your background. There are many things you can use as a background. It depends on your creativity and the type of story you want to post.

For example, you can either take a photo of something, post a photo from your iPhone gallery, or choose a color for your background. If you plan to add multiple photos and want a solid background, here's what you can do:

  1. Open the app on your iPhone.
