This way has several drawbacks;

  • If you manage your IG on a PC, you can not use this method because it is on the app only.
  • This way, you can not reorder and resize the images
  • At most, you can upload 6 photos, not more

Lets’s jump into the second way.

Copy An Image & Paste It On The Story Screen

This method is for Android users only. First, open your story and upload a photo. Now before you tap on “Share,” head to the place the other photo is and copy it. Then go back to your story and hold your finger on the image. If the “Paste” option appeared, paste the photo. At last, resize the images and share.

The major drawback of this method is that it is only applicable to some Android users. What kind? We still don’t know to this day. However, it is worth a shot. If didn’t work, try the next method, which is free, and users of all devices can try it.
