Instagram users will be pleased to learn that they can now save a post straight to their private collection for even easier access later on.

Instagram’s Latest Feature is Wonderful for Those Who Love to Keep Things Organized

Instagram comes with a nifty little feature that lets you bookmark photos for viewing later. These photos can then be accessed from your profile page on iOS or Android under a dedicated Saved tab. However, all the posts your bookmark simply fall under this tab directly with no option for organizing them into categories (or collections) whatsoever. Luckily, all of that changes today, with Instagram announcing a new feature, allowing you to drop bookmarked photos into a dedicated collection of photos. Here’s more on the subject, straight from Instagram itself.

Starting this week, you can save posts into private collections. Tap and hold the bookmark icon underneath any post to save it directly to a collection. You can create and name a new collection when you save a post, or you can add it to one you’ve already created. You can also create a collection out of your existing saved posts. Tap the plus icon in the top right corner, give your collection a name and select the saved posts you’d like to add.

You can find your collections on the saved posts tab on your profile. Just like all saved posts, your collections are private — only you can see them.

This feature is extremely handy in a lot of ways. For instance, if you are strolling through the social network looking for renovation ideas, then you can simply create an ‘Ideas’ collection and save everything there without much fuss. You can do the same if you are bookmarking photos and videos of food. The list goes on. It’s totally up to you how you can manage things with this new feature.

At the time of writing, this feature is in the process of being rolled out to everyone the world over. Therefore expect it to arrive on your doorstep in up to a week. Till then, make sure you take Instagram for a spin on your mobile device.
