Upload Altogether According to Preferred Order


  1. Open the app through your device by simply tapping on the Instagram icon or type in on your browser’s URL address field. Either you are already automatically signed in or you need to input your username and password to gain access to your account profile. When you do, you must be shown your Profile Page or News Feed. This is depending on how you preferred seeing your account content when you started.
  2. Once in, tap on the camera icon normally located at the upper left side of your screen. This is now your Stories Page. If you haven’t had any story posted before, you will likely see a plus sign where you tap in order to get started. A new page will be shown, and this is where your photo or video gallery is. You can also take a series of  new photos using your device camera, in case you would rather post fresh images.
  3. Tick your options. Once you have chosen the images, tap on the option “Select Multiple”. You can find this at the top corner part of your screen. The series of content you choose is marked by numbers from 1 onwards. Should you wish to rearrange your options, just x it all out and start ordering them again.
  4. This is the part where you apply filters and edit the photos or videos you have chosen. You can even add audio that matches your concept if you like. There is no need for another application to do this. Instagram has built-in content editing features which you can use each time you post an Instagram story.
  5. Hit on the Share button once you have ticked the boxes of the photos you wish to add on your Instagram Story.
  6. A notification will tell you once you have successfully uploaded the multiple pictures. Otherwise, you will receive feedback from the app itself. It can be an advice to refresh your internet connectivity, or it is taking time to upload as you have issues with connection. Nonetheless, you get information regarding the task you are trying to complete.
