Multiple Pictures on Instagram Story: over Background and Video

Many people think that we need a photo editor to add multiple photos to Story. 
But in reality, we don’t need anything extra. Instagram has versatile features. We can easily add an additional photo over the Story.
Apart from just putting the image you can also change the shape, align it properly, and many more…

Follow these steps to put Multiple photos on Story:

  1. Step 1: First click on the Plus icon, this time select Story.
  2. Step 2: Now put a Base image or you can say Background.As we need a surface, so this layer is most important. You can add this from your gallery or shot with the Camera.

    Did you know we can even zoom a photo with two fingers to position a specific part?
  3. Step 3: After you have the base image click on the Sticker.No. I’m not gonna suggest you to put a sticker. There is magic.
    Just Scroll a little.
  4. Step 4: There you get the Add Photo Sticker, click on that.

    I told you. It is that magic.
  5. Step 5: Now select the picture you want to add to the Story.Once you click on the Add image sticker, your recent photos will appear. Which photo would you like to add? Select.
    Unlike the Feed post, here you can’t choose from a specific album. So instead of finding your old photos, first take their Screenshot from the gallery then go to Instagram.
Couldn’t find the Add photo option? Then you may contact the Instagram support team. 
Also, you can try this trick of Pasting Images in the place of Text.
The story doesn’t end here. There are many cool things yet to know.
Do you know we can Change the Shape of the picture? Yes, there are 5 different shapes.
To change the Shape just click on the image and see the magic happen.
We can easily move the photo using a single Finger. But to Resize it you have to use two fingers.
While moving the image have you encounter any Line that comes through the screen? It helps us to align the image perfectly. I found these guidelines really helpful.
After adding two or more photos you may face some images are overlapping others. You can stop this by reducing the size of the images.
But the better solution is to Send to Back and Bring to Front. See, if Photo1 is capturing an important part of Photo2, then click on Photo2. Now your Photo2 will dominate over Photo1.
Now you may want to apply some Filters! Keep in mind, filters would only affect the Background layer. And trust me it looks more legitimate.

My View

Ultimately, I would say Instagram has cool features that make your photos look Stand Out. Unlike Facebook, Instagram’s multiple photos feed looks more attractive. What do you think?
On the other hand, Story posts are extraordinary. I never thought we would be able to add photos on the Story posts. When it comes to using editing apps.
