As one of the most popular social media platforms, Instagram has been mounted with powerful features including slideshows. You can add multiple media such as photos and videos in a single post. Up to 10 images or videos can be added and shared on the feed. Just like any other Instagram post, you can include captions, alt-image texts, a geotag in Instagram slideshow post. People can like, comment, and share your slideshow post, just like any other.

Different from the traditional slideshow, users have to swipe left to see other photos or videos in a post on Instagram. Each photo or video in the slideshow post will be uniformed, which means the shape of the first slide will also be applied to the rest.
