The Instagram feed is sacred to a lot of people. Maintaining an aesthetically pleasing Instagram feed is something that a lot of users on the app try to do. You can play around with different themes that let you show an organised and aesthetic feed. One feature that could help you in reorganising your feed is archiving posts. You can also use this feature to hide photos that you may not want to delete.

Archive is a nifty feature that was introduced back in 2017. In case you’re unaware about this feature, it lets you archive posts from your feed and store them until you decide to bring them back to your feed. Deleting posts would mean losing out on the likes and comments so archiving is a good option if you’re unsure.
