Most of the time we love it when someone follows us on Instagram. But every once in a while someone comes around who we don’t want following us. Maybe you have a stalker? Or maybe you bought Instagram followers and want to remove some of them? You can follow and unfollow anyone you want, but how can you delete followers on Instagram?
Earlier this month Instagram launched it’s new feature Stories. I did share a tutorial to create Instagram Stories. This article is a result of one of those queries which users asks us via our Contact form, Social Media or personal accounts of our Editors. There was a similar question a user requested me to answer on Quora about “How can I add Instagram stories from Gallery or Camera roll?” and hence I come up with a solution to add photos and videos in Instagram story from smartphone’s Gallery.
you might wish to upload a photo from your iPhone Camera roll or Android Gallery because that was one of the best shots you took in the last 24 hours at least. Or you weren’t able to access Instagram when that moment was happening. Or you couldn’t find a good filter in Instagram stories default filters. For such situations, Instagram does allow you to post photos and videos from your smartphone’s gallery to your Stories. Here’s how.

Welcome to the new Instagram! This born-again Instagram is a total paranoid, over protective and has a zero tolerance … to spammers … or anything that ‘looks and acts‘ like spammer.
Don’t get me wrong, the intention is good, in general. It is designed to get rid off fake accounts and spammers that had riddled the service for so long.
At the end of 2016, Instagram introduced a bookmarking feature. Users can save a post in their home feed by tapping the bookmark button under it. Instagram saves the post to your account. The post i.e. the image itself is not saved to your camera roll. The saved image will be deleted if the account that shared it decides to remove it. It won’t make any difference that you saved it. Initially, the save feature was basic. Instagram has now added a way to organize saved posts. You can add saved posts to a folder i.e., collection on Instagram. Users can create as many collections as they want.
You should probably update the Instagram app. The feature wasn’t in the change log but it’s better to be on the safe side. At this point, it is probably rolling out slowly to users.
