How to make Instagram Reels with multiple photos

Earlier Instagram would not let you just add a picture in Instagram Reels, and photos were not supported in Reels. It was very disappointing and inconvenient. However, Instagram has fixed it already. If you are still experiencing this problem (it might be a temporary bug or glitch on your Instagram account),  we have found three ways to work around this and to still add still photos to your Reels right on your phone. 

In this article, we will explain the Instagram Reels tutorial and show exactly how to make Reels on Instagram, and add photos with some very simple steps. 

  1. The first way is to record your screen.

When you go to your Camera Roll, just make sure you have the photo pulled up that you want to record. Hit the screen Record Button (pull down your menu – and hit Screen Record). If it does not work go to your Settings –  Control Center and add Screen Recording to it. Basically, you will just record your screen and stop screen recording.

Then you can add this screen recording to your Reel as “a photo” because it is in the video form. However, it works only for iPhone users. If you have an Android hang on to the next option we’ll talk further.
