Instagram just launched a brand new feature for all us social media addicts.
You can now post in slideshow format, uploading up to 10 photos or videos at once.
Blue dots will appear under a post with more than one snapshot. All you have to do is swipe to see the additional pictures.
If you want post a slideshow of your own, all you have to do is begin uploading a photo like you normally would. In Instagram’s latest update, there’s a button that says “select multiple.” Pick the photos/videos you want and then you can choose to either apply one filter to them all or edit them each individually.
Currently, slideshow posts can only have one caption and must adhere to the square-shape format.
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.
