The last time Instagram rolled out format changes to its platform, it stirred some dismay among its users, who denounced a new algorithm that eliminated the sensical timeline that presented photos in chronological order.
The social media company, however, appears to have learned from its past mistakes. On Wednesday, it updated its software so that users can share multiple photos within one post, according to its blog.
The People: we just want our instagram to follow a chronological order again.@instagram : you can now post up to 10 photos in one post.— HabitualLineStepper (@O_Dolly) February 22, 2017
"Make Instagram chronological again."
"With this update, you no longer have to choose the single best photo or video from an experience you want to remember," the company wrote. "Now, you can combine up to 10 photos and videos in one post and swipe through to see them all."
After updating, users will see a new icon to select multiple photos and videos. And unlike past apps -- like "Layout," which made creating photo collages easier -- the Instagram update will give the user total control over which photo goes where, and which filter is applied to each.
Blue dots will also appear underneath photos to let users know that there are more photos to view.
Photo enthusiasts seem to be reacting positively to the changes.
