Hack: How To Add Multiple Photos To An Instagram Story Without A Third-Party App


Over the summer, it was reported that Instagram was testing a new feature that would allow you to add multiple photos and video stickers to an Instagram Story without the need of third-party apps. Despite a bunch of new features for Stories rolling out over the last few months, this feature has yet to arrive.

There isn’t any indication if it will ever arrive, but that actually may not be a problem at all as Twitter user Tyson Hutchins recently discovered and shared a hack for iOS users that gives you the ability to add multiple photos to a Story. It’s actually easy and relatively quick.

You can find a screen recording of the process as well as a step-by-step guide below:

Step-by-step Guide:

  1. Launch Instagram Stories

  2. Either take a photo or select a photo from your phone that you want to add as a Story

  3. Find another photo from your phone that you want to add to your Story

  4. Click the ‘Share’ icon at the bottom right of the photo and tap ‘Copy’

  5. Go back to the original Story and tap on the photo as if you were going to add text

  6. Once the cursor is blinking, hold down on your screen until ‘Paste’ appears

  7. Click ‘Paste’ to add the photo you copied

  8. Adjust, resize, and move the photo however you would like

There are a bunch of third-party apps like Unfold and Canva that let you add multiple photos and videos to a Story via ready-made templates, but this hack provides room for flexibility as you aren’t confined to a specific photo size or photo placement restrictions. Instead, you can make your photo any size you want and place it anywhere you want.  Obviously, the one downfall of this hack is that it doesn’t work with videos.
