Fortunately, the process is pretty user-friendly and intuitive, and we’ll show you how it works from your computer and Facebook mobile apps.

How to Create a Facebook Story With Multiple Pictures

Facebook Stories have a prominent location on the Facebook feed as they sit right at the very top. When a Facebook user launches the app or the platform’s web version, Stories are the first to catch their eye.

So, it’s no surprise that many users try to make them as engaging as possible and often upload multiple pictures to one Story.

To create a Facebook Story with multiple pictures, follow the steps outlined below.


Unlike Instagram, Facebook lets you create stories using a web browser, albeit with some limitations. Still, if you prefer using Facebook from your computer, here’s what to do:

  1. Go to Facebook using any browser and log into your account.
  2. Click on “Create a Story” on the upper left side of the screen.
  3. Select the “Create a photo story” option.
  4. Browse your computer files for the photos you want to post to the Story.
  5. Select who can see the Story (“Public” or “Friends.)
  6. Select “Share to Story.”

The photo you’ve selected will instantly be published to your Facebook Story. However, to add more than one photo here’s what you should do:

  1. Click on your Story button on your Facebook feed.
  2. When the published Story launches, click on the “No Viewers Yet” (“See Viewers”) option at the bottom.
  3. When another window appears, click on the empty square next to your posted photo.
  4. Upload an image from your computer files.
  5. Click on the “Share” button at the bottom.

You can repeat the process as many times as necessary to create a perfect sequence of pictures on your Facebook Story.


If you’re an iPhone user, posting a story with one or multiple photos is essentially similar to posting from a PC, but you get a few more editing options. Follow these steps to see how it works:

  1. Launch the Facebook app on your iPhone and make sure you’re logged into your account.
  2. At the top of your Feed, tap the “Create Story” option.
  3. Choose a photo from your device’s gallery or take a new photo.
  4. Edit the photo using stickers, filters, adding text, or using effects by tapping the “Aa” button.
  5. Adjust the privacy settings.

  6. Select “Share to Story.”

The first photo you’ve selected is automatically published, and your next move is to add more pictures. You can do that if you:

  1. Open your published Story.
  2. Tap the gallery icon at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  3. Select another photo to post and edit it.
  4. Tap the “Your Story” option or tap “Share To” followed by “Your Story” on the next screen.

If you want to add more than one photo to a single story, that’s also an option for iPhone users. Here’s what you should do:
