Gone are the days of having to use a separate app to create picture collages for your Instagram. Instagram’s new layout mode allows users to paste separate photos together- all while staying within the app. Here’s the low down on how to use this feature to spice up your Instagram stories.

How to Use Layout for Stories

  1. Open Instagram and slide over to the camera.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, swipe over to “layout” (next to “boomerang”).
  3. From there, select which layout option you want to use. You can choose from layouts to include two to six photos.
  4. Either snap photos you want to use, or choose to upload photos you have already taken.
  5. Once your desired collage is created, tap the check mark and send to your story.






















Creating collages for your stories is a great way to ensure your audience gets the most out of your content. By including a few photos in one story, you are making sure others see all that you have to offer. With stories, users have the option to swipe past your stories if they are uninterested. By utilizing Instagram’s layout feature, your ensuring each story you post packs the most punch.
