More often than not sometimes you might post a photo on Instagram that you might decide to delete later. There are many reasons for this, such as maybe on second thought it doesn’t look as nice as you think, or maybe you’re getting too many flames and trolls, and so on. However if you do decide to bring it back, it basically means starting from scratch again.

However in the future that may no longer be the case. The folks at TechCrunch were recently tipped off to a feature Instagram is testing by Matt Navarra. As you can see in the screenshot above, it seems that Instagram is testing out an archiving feature where users can choose to archive posts instead of deleting them outright.

Archiving a photo does not delete it and users will be able to quickly and easily bring it back at a later date if they choose. Instagram has since confirmed to TechCrunch that this is a feature that they are testing out, but stopped short on stating whether or not this will eventually become a feature that is available to all.

We have to admit that this is actually a rather clever feature and one we wouldn’t mind seeing. We’re not sure who the feature is being tested on, but if you do see it activated for your account, this is what it’s meant for.
