Crafting the perfect Instagram photo is a delicate art. While there’s no better way to secure more likes than showing off a shot of the sun setting over the Indian Ocean in the Maldives, if you post one too many of these envy-inducing beauties, your followers may be more irritated than impressed.

Fortunately, Instagram has come up with the perfect compromise, an easy way for you to share your best shots without overloading your follower’s feeds. Starting today, instead of posting just one picture, you’ll be able to create a photo album that can hold up to 10 photos or videos within a single post, giving your friends the option to choose if they’d like to swipe through all of them.

Here’s how to do it: When uploading a photo, look for a new icon that lets you select multiple photos and videos. After you’ve chosen the best of the bunch, you can edit them as normal, apply filters, change the order or remove photos from your selection. Make sure your caption is witty though, as you’ll only be able to use a single one (and one geo-tag) for the entire album post. Note that you must have the latest version of Instagram to view this new photo album feature.

TPG has already put this new feature to good use, gathering his best shots from a recent trip to the Maldives. Check out the album below and watch for more travel inspiration, coming soon to his Instagram feed.
