The first method allows you to select up to 10 photos and videos from your camera roll, which get uploaded to your Story as 10 separate slides. 

The second method is layering several photos on the same slide as stickers, and the last method is creating a collage using Instagram’s built in feature called Layout. 

Here’s how to do it all.
