After much demand, Instagram has introduced the option to delete single photos from carousel posts.

Given that Instagram carousel posts typically earn 1.4x more reach and 3.1x more engagement than regular posts, this is good news for social media managers who want to refine their strategy, or simply go back and delete an accidental upload. 

Instagram chief Adam Mosseri explained in a Reel that users can delete a specific post from a carousel of images or videos by tapping on the three dots above any post. They can then select Edit, navigate to the individual image they want to delete, and tap on the small trash icon in the top left.
