The very first solution for how to make a slideshow on Instagram is of course to make use of Instagram feature. In the very beginning, Instagram had no support for posting photo slideshow. However, later Instagram had brought out an update that enabled its users to easily generate photos into slideshow for posting directly. That is generally called Instagram Slideshow, which allows you to post up to 10 images or videos at once. Finally! Your profile will stop getting clogged up with similar images in a row, and a little icon will show if a post contains multiple images.
