If you want to give an artistic twist to your Insta Stories instead of posting random pics, here’s an idea for you. Try turning the sequence of pictures into a visual essay. What if each picture added to your Stories is a slide in a click-through slideshow.

Break the whole storyline into separate parts, then go ahead and load it. Here’s an excellent example of putting a cup of coffee into the Insta Story spotlight.

DO NOT overload each photo with text. You can’t read a novel in 10 seconds, anyway!
