Some photos have been responsible for helping sure folks land better-paying jobs. In contrast, others have been responsible for making others lose their jobs. With almost 30 million different brands using Instagram, one cannot underestimate the role a lousy picture can play in determining one's future. Deleting photos becomes extremely important. 

Reasons for deleting pictures    

Attracting a new job or the fear of losing one aren't the only reasons valid make you want to delete your Instagram pictures. These reasons are  

  • Posting multiple photos: posting multiple photos often occurs when you inadvertently post the same images on your profile. Similar images without variations will make the post appear cluttered. If this happens, the best thing to do is to delete it.
  • Rebranding self: it is not surprising to know that you can start a new phase of your life ( as a matter of fact, most people love that and do so). This act of rebranding involves deleting old images of yourself or images that no longer represent your beliefs, personality, or ethics.

The following reasons are a few of the reasons why you should delete your Instagram pictures. There you have them. Since these reasons have been established, it is vital to know how to remove these pictures yourself.

Step 1: Ensure that you are logged in

It is impossible to initiate any process on Instagram except you are logged in. The first process in deleting your Instagram account is ensuring that you are logged in. If you aren't logged in, click on your username and enter your password. Complete this process by clicking “login.” Once you are logged in, follow the next step.

Step 2: Select the photos

This step is quite simple, and it depends on the number of photos that the user wants to be deleted. To select the images for deletion, select each picture or click on select all (Instagram restricts the number of deleted photos to 30). Once the photographs are chosen, you are one step away from removing the pictures, and all that's left is a few more steps.

Step 3: delete the selected images

Other factors also influence the speed of deletion; these factors include your internet connection and your phone's processor speed.

Step 4: wait for a while

Step 5: continue the steps
