Tired of posting only ONE photo per Instagram Story?

Maybe you’re on an incredible vacation in Seville, Spain, and you have 1,000+ photos you want to share – but don’t want to create 100s of Stories.

Or you could be gearing up for a product launch and want to show off the different items in your latest jewellery collection.

Whatever your reason, adding multiple photos to your Instagram Story is a great way to add some spice and switch up your usual content.
