80 Photo Dump Captions For Using Your Instagram Like A Mood Board

“Sorry, I think my camera roll just threw up on your feed.”

At the end of the month, you love to look back on all the fun you had with your friends and the simple moments in between. You probably snapped a few selfies, some sunset pics, and have a few yummy #foodie pics that never made your Instagram story. It’s fun to “favorite” the photos in your camera roll that spark joy and carefully curate them into an aesthetic slide show to drop on your feed. It’s hard to nail a perfect caption for a bunch of unrelated images, so we’ve got you covered with 80 photo dump captions for Instagram for when you feel like using your feed as a mood board or sentimental scrapbook.

Photo dumps, which are continuing to trend on social media, let users round up the memories they're making during a long period of time in one post. Instead of selecting two or three high-quality photos in their camera roll — and subsequently figuring out where they'd fit in a layout of their upcoming feed — users are opting to tap "share" right away and post their memorable moments in a long slide after they’ve come home. On top of this, there’s less of a focus on filters or drastic photo edits to make the images look perfect. Essentially, photo dumps allow you the freedom to casually capture the moment you’re in, without having to fuss about posing and lighting. Then, when you go to post your roundup of life snippets, it’ll feel more about the happy time, and less about the flex.

It's the perfect trend for both social media lovers and those who enjoy posting sparingly, and it definitely makes the most of the "Select Multiple" feature on Instagram. In the past, you may have used this cool feature to post multiple selfies when you couldn't pick just one. But now, you can use it to round up all your scrapbook-worthy mems and "dump" your camera roll onto your followers’ feeds, along with one of these funny Instagram captions for photo dump posts.
