To fix this pesky Instagram posting issue, here's what to try:

  • First, make sure you are using the latest version of the Instagram app.
  • Also, check your internet connectivity. A slow and unstable connection may be the reason you cannot post multiple pictures. In the case of a poor connection, you will probably get a “Not Posted Yet. Try Again.” error.
  • You might also want to ensure that you are not posting any pictures that violate the community guidelines. You can find out more about the community guidelines on the Instagram Help Centre.
  • Try clearing the Instagram cache to see if that helps. If your device is running on low space, delete some apps or media to free up space.
  • If the problem persists, resize your picture. It is likely that the picture is too big. Try resizing it to a smaller size and then uploading it again.
  • Finally, if all else fails, reach out to Instagram Support. They can help you with the issue. You can also report the problem within the app.
