How to Fix Instagram Not Letting Me Post Multiple Photos

#1. Press and hold on to a photo.

When you post multiple pictures on Instagram, you can click the multi-select icon to choose multiple photos. If this does not work, you can press and hold on to a photo, and then you’ll have the option to choose different pictures.

Please note that if your photos are in different aspect ratios, you need to choose the first photo and then tap the icon in the bottom left corner to crop it to change it to the desired aspect ratio.

Then, you can select other images and they will adhere to the same aspect ratio on Instagram.

#2. Check your network connection.

If your Android phone or iPhone isn’t connected to valid Wi-Fi or doesn’t get cellular data enabled, it’s impossible to post multiple photos on Instagram successfully.

When Instagram doesn’t allow you to select and post multiple pictures, you should disconnect and reconnect your network to fix the problem. It’s a common troubleshooting tip for any Instagram issues like stories or reels not working, filters not working, music not working, and more.
