How to use PhotoBooth for your Instagram story

Instagram offers some great features for creating memorable stories and posts. You can use Multi-Capture to quickly snap several photos for your story. And you can use PhotoBooth for that “photo booth” look, which is what we’ll walk through here.

Just like sitting in that photo booth at the mall, you can capture four pictures of you and your pals, pets, or just yourself. Then, add them to your Instagram story for something a little different. Here’s how to use the PhotoBooth feature in Instagram.

Use PhotoBooth on Instagram

Open the Instagram app on your iPhone and get ready to use this fun feature.

1) Tap the plus sign at the top and swipe to the right to select Story.

2) On the side of the story screen, tap PhotoBooth. If you only see icons, tap the arrow at the bottom of the list to expand it and see the icons with labels.

3) Use the shutter button when you’re ready to start. The feature will count down from three seconds and then capture four pictures a few seconds apart, just like a physical photo booth. You’ll see the delay between each shot as a disappearing square, so you can prepare for the next one.

Instagram PhotoBooth Capture

Then share your story as you normally would. Your story will then play through each photo in the order it was captured, similar to how Multi-Capture photos work.
