The free Instagram application for smartphones streamlines the process of applying professional looking filters to photos and sharing your snaps online. You can either have a public account, so anyone can see your photos, or keep things private, making your photos visible only to approved followers. Regardless of your account settings, you can upload only one photo at a time to Instagram. Uploading multiple shots in succession might be annoying to your followers, but Instagram offers no native solution for combining images. Instead, use one of several third-party applications that make it possible to create images made up of multiple photos.
