In a bid to align with most other social media apps and networks, Instagram has offered a multitude of new features in the last year. From the sponsored advertisements (linked with Facebook Ads) and “stories” trying to muscle in on the audience of Snapchat to the latest feature – the Instagram Carousel.
Users are now able to upload multiple photographs to one post, allowing readers to ‘swipe’ through the photographs. Up to ten photos can be loaded to one post.
Sassi Photography has used the new carousel feature to educate clients on the editing possibilities for their photographs. By showing a ‘before’ and ‘after’ of a newborn baby with flakey skin (a very common condition with newborn babies, and one parents worry about during newborn photography sessions), Sassi Photography has simply shown how easy and natural a Photoshop edit can look.
Behind the scenes, different edits, meeting the staff, out-and-about… there are so many uses for this new feature that are sure to get more traffic to your Instagram feed. The most exciting part – stills and videos can be mixed together for a full experience or snapshot!
