Carousels allow Instagram users to share several photos and videos in a single post, thus enhancing the experience of sharing with friends and followers.

However, many users expressed discontent towards the social media platform when they realized they couldn’t delete or rearrange the order of the images/videos after posting.

Instagram eventually rectified one of the issues when they rolled out a feature in November 2021 that allows users to delete one or more of the slides from a carousel post.

But how can you rearrange the order of your slides after sharing the post with your feed?

One TikTok account, which goes by the handle of @later.com, has shared the answer in a minute-long video.

The TikTok hack has gone viral since going live and shows the steps in an easy-to-follow manner.

First, users must tap the three dots in the top right corner of the carousel post.

Then, they have to decide which photo they want as the cover image, and delete any photos before it — users can do this by tapping the trash icon in the top left corner of the photo.

As the carousel post must have at least two pictures in it at all times, users should not erase too many.

Once users are satisfied with their cover photo, they can save the post.

Next up is restoring the deleted images, which can be done by going to Settings > Account > Recently Deleted.

Once there, users can tap on and restore their images in the order they want them to appear in the carousel as each photo will show up at the end of the carousel.
