How to post a slideshow on Instagram (with images)

Instagram is a social network application with which you can capture images, edit them using the predefined filters, and share them with your followers. Many people use Instagram: friends, family, celebrities, bloggers… all of them share photos that are either relevant to their platforms, or just to provide a glimpse into their daily lives. Instagram now has the video sharing feature, which means you can also share multiple photos at a time using a slideshow.
