Instagram Albums, a small but important update is rolling out today giving users access to a simple album feature finally. You’ll now have the option to upload up to 10 photos and videos under one post. When you see an album icon on a post it will look somewhat the same as before but you’ll now be able to swipe left and right to view other photos and video.
The update technically means fewer posts, which means less reach. Important photos you want out should still be separate posts on Instagram to get more eyes on them. If you have a metric ton of photos from a shoot or have a few that go in a set it’s a new way to share them out without spamming your feed but we wouldn’t suggest this for everyday use. You now have the option to think out of the box for other creative ideas such as before and after editing.
Watch the video below for a demo, you simply select the bottom right album symbol in the photo selection. You then have the option to choose multiple photos or videos. The post will have one caption for all the items, unlike Facebook for example, and you’re limited to square aspect ratio. For those that use filters, you will have the option to apply one to the whole set or apply different filters to specific photos.
