How To Create Instagram Multi-Image (Carousel) Posts

With Instagram's Carousel feature, you can now post multiple images and videos in one single post, currently up to 10 photos and videos together. Below we'll show you how easy it is to create a carousel post.

1. Prepare your images. For the purpose of this we'll assume you have all your images already in your device's photo library. If we've emailed you images for your carousel post make sure you save them directly to your photo library.

2. Tap the + sign as you would when creating any other sort of post.


3. Select your starting image from your photo library.

Then press the zoom out icon (1) 

Then press Select Multiple Images Icon (2)

4. Now scroll through your photo library and select the images that will follow in the carousel by tapping in them.

Do this in the correct order for your carousel.

Each time you select another image a number will be assigned to the top right of that image.

Once you’re happy with the images and/or videos that you’ve chosen, tap Next on the top right of the screen.

5. Next up you have the ability to apply filters. Unless you select an individual image, selecting a filter will apply to all of the images.

This screen also allows you to reorder your images by dragging them to your desired position.

Once you're finished click Next.

On the next screen enter your caption and hash tags as you normally would. You can tag people in the individual pics by clicking on any of the slides.

Now simply tap share and you've created a multi-image carousel post!
