Instagram is now a fantastic platform for promoting both professional and induvial talent. On Instagram, there are many methods to communicate with someone, including direct messages (DMs), notes, responding to comments, uploading reels, etc. There is also another method that can be used to interact with others, it is called stories. Unfortunately, stories that you are posting will disappear after 24 hours, however, if you want to put them permanently on your profile, you must create a highlight. For that reason in mind, I have decided to show you How to Easily Add a Story to Highlight on Instagram.

Actually, there are a couple of methods that you can use to create Instagram highlights but for now, the following two methods will fulfill our job.

Points to keep in mind:

  • You can not create highlights on Instagram without even adding a single highlight.
  • There is no limit to how many stores and highlights you can create.
  • In a Single Highlight, you can add up to 100 photos and videos, if you want to add more, create a new highlight.
  • Let’s say that you can add 100 items to a single highlight, if you add another, the very first story in that highlight will be removed.
  • You can not move items from one highlight to another.
