Stories on Instagram turned out to be a huge success, but still there’s no official way to upload old photos on Instagram Story. However, we guys at GizmoStorm are committed to teach you some easy workaround, no matter how difficult the problem is.
Instagram has totally mimicked the way how Snapchat works. I mean, it has turned itself as an advanced version of Snapchat with all the features contained by Snapchat plus it’s own version. If reports are to be believed, Instagram Story faced huge criticism with it’s aggressive approach of mimicking Snapchat but still it managed to grab attention of it’s potential users. Moreover, since then there’s rapid increase in average time spent on Instagram per user. Nice move, No?
Few months back we covered an article on how you can easily Upload Snapchat Story From Gallery, but this time it’s all about Instagram. Without wasting any time, let’s see how to Add Photos Older Than 24 Hours To Instagram Story. All you need to do is sit back, relax and follow the guide as mentioned –
Before We Upload Old Photos on Instagram Story, Please Note :
- Officially Instagram Story won’t allow you to upload story older than 24 hours. In case you are in a hurry and want to upload older photos asap, just take screenshot of your desired photo which you want to upload and crop it to remove status bar and all.
- This way you have automatically generated the photo which is not older than 24 hours that can be uploaded easily. This method might hamper the quality of image.
- However, in case you are looking for more rigid workaround then just change date and time of the photo and you are good to go. Let’s see how this can be done :
Add Photos Older Than 24 Hours To Instagram Story :
To Upload Old Photos on Instagram Story, you should be having either Android or iOS device. If you agree upon this, please proceed further :
Step 1 : Head over to App Store and search for MetaTrixter. This is a free light weight app allowing users to Play with the meta data of the photos.
For your convenience, here’s App Store link for MetaTrixter.
Please follow the same steps for Instagram on Android also. However instead of MetaTrixter, App name is Image Date Editor.
Note : For sake of demonstration, I am using MetaTrixter.
Step 2 : Allow MetaTrixter to access your photos and within a second it’ll show all your photos so that meta data can be changed. You can also change the meta data of entire album to save your precious time in case you are interested in burst upload.
Step 3 : Select the Photo and tap on date shown at bottom left corner of the screen.
Step 4 : This is the most important step, follow it carefully. Set the date and time so that it’s not greater than 24 hours from the current time and tap on Set.
Step 6 : Finally MetaTrixter will ask you to modify this photo. Just tap on Modify and you are done.
Step 7 : Now head over to Instagram Story and check if your desired photo is available to upload on Story or not. Just check first and thank me later.
That’s it! This is how you can easily Upload Old Photos on Instagram Story. For any queries or doubts, don’t forget to comment down below. I’ll try to get back asap.
