How to use Instagram's new slideshow feature

Instagram has been updated to let you share multiple photos and videos in one post.

When uploading images, you'll see a new icon to help you select more than one.

You can still apply filters to the photos, either editing them one by one or all at the same time. With this feature, Instagram is hoping to take off some of the pressure while also allowing users to share a story through a series of pictures.

This feature is now rolling out on Android and iPhone, so keep an eye out for an update. You can like and comment on them just like a regular post.

The carousels will feature the first photo or video to your Instagram feed, while the remaining photos in the batch can be swiped left or right.

To create a carousel, you tap a new icon that mimics a photo stack. They just need to tap and swipe on the photo to see more. Which made it all the more inexplicable that Instagram restricted photo carousels to its advertisers.
