Instagram Stories is a great way to display photos and videos of your daily activities, but at the same time just one image may not be enough to display what you want, and yet you can add many photos even after publishing the story.

Below we will show more than one method that allows you to add more photos to Instagram stories:

1- Add more photos to a published story through the stories page:


If you already published your story, you can add more than one image to it directly from your current story page. You can add up to six images to your previously published story. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Tap on your previously published story to open it.
  • On the top left of the published story page, click on your own picture.
  • At the bottom left of the screen, click on the Photo Gallery icon.
  • In your phone’s gallery, select the photo you want to add and tap on it.
  • At the bottom left of the screen, tap on the Your Story option to automatically add the photo to your Instagram story.
  • To view all the pictures in your story in order, click on the Your Story icon at the top left of the screen, the first image in the story will appear for you, and you can click on the horizontal lines that appear at the top of the story to see all the photos that you have published.

Note: When you add a post to your previously published Instagram story from your personal account page, you can continue adding new posts and another story right after that, without having to go to another page.

4- Add photos to stories through friends’ posts:

When you scroll through your homepage, you may find a picture you liked that one of your friends has posted that you would like to add to your story. You can do so easily from your home page. To do so, follow these steps:

  • Click the arrow button next to the comment icon to share the post.
  • Click on the Add post to your Story option from the menu that appears.
  • On the bottom left of the screen, tap on the Your Story option, this will instantly add the image to your Instagram story so your followers can see it.

It is worth noting that Facebook, which owns the Instagram application, has begun testing the feature (seeing Instagram stories directly in the Facebook application), as a company spokesperson confirmed in an interview with (Matt Navarra), a commentator in the social media industry, that this is a limited test, and that the company will listen to the comments.

The spokesperson indicated that the feature “respects all current privacy settings,” and said: Instagram users have the option to keep their stories away from Facebook completely if they wish.
