Introducing Instagram’s New Scrolling Carousel Feature

Introducing Instagram’s New Scrolling Carousel Feature

Instagram has yet again given users another reason to not get bored and use different photo-sharing apps like, say, Snapchat. The iOS and Android social media app has been updated with the ability to upload up to 10 photos and videos at once in one single post. Here’s how it works.

We all have “that one friend” we follow that overloads your feed with 20 plus photos of their cat… in one sitting… We get it, your cat is hilarious and you can’t bear to pick just one photo that perfectly encapsulates the humor! Now you can avoid cluttering your friends’ feeds with Instagram’s new scrolling carousel feature.

Instagram is lifting its limitations by allowing up to 10 images and videos per post. You don’t have to share just one photo per post anymore. This is a feature that Instagram launched two years ago, but was previously only available to brands, until today. 

The posting experience is largely like how it’s always been, except users are asked to tap the photo stack icon titled “Select Multiple” to start the process of multiple uploads. Select a batch of photos, videos or Boomerangs – just like you would select photos from your Camera Roll to send in a message or email. You can rearrange the order and apply a filter to the entire post or individual filters to each photo and video. However, each post is allowed just one caption, and the entire bunch is cropped to Instagram’s signature square format.

Those uploads will be shared as a single entity on an Instagram feed and will be presented in a horizontal scrolling carousel which will allow users to tell a story of an event or experience a lot better than having to choose a single image or video which best represents that occasion.

Instagram’s multiple upload feature is genuinely one step in the right direction and something which will be used a lot by users looking to tell a story in a more convenient way for everyone!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say you’ve done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari. Exceptional Blog!

    Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

    I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours these days, yet I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will likely be a lot more useful than ever before. “Baseball is 90 percent mental.
