Instagram introduces gallery posts


Instagram introduces gallery posts

Another reason to spend hours scrolling down your feed

If you’re tired of seeing your timeline spammed by multiple vacation posts, one after the other, Instagram’s latest update is going to make your day.

You can now upload galleries, featuring 10 images or videos at the same time in one single post.

For this, you start uploading a picture as you would earlier. Now it will give you an option to select multiple pictures or videos at a time. You can change their order, apply a single filter to all or edit each picture separately if you like.

For now, you give a single caption to the gallery and upload square images only.

Surprise! Swipe left on the post above to see more. Starting today, you can share up to 10 photos and videos in one post on Instagram. With this update, you no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember. When uploading to your feed, you’ll see a new icon to select multiple photos and videos. It’s easy to control exactly how your post will look. You can tap and hold to change the order, apply a filter to everything at once or edit one by one. These posts have a single caption and are square-only for now. On a profile grid, you’ll notice the first photo or video of a post has a little icon, which means there’s more to see. And in feed, you’ll see blue dots at the bottom of these posts to let you know you can swipe to see more. You can like and comment on them just like a regular post. This update is available as part of Instagram version 10.9 for iOS in the Apple App Store and for Android on Google Play. To learn more, check out help.instagram.com.
