As social media users increasingly prefer visual content, multi-image posts provide an excellent opportunity to engage your audience. Here are just a few ways you can use them:

  • Showcase a new product or service from different angles

  • Share highlights from a recent industry event your company attended

  • Promote upcoming events with eye-catching visuals

  • Combine text-based images with photographs for added impact

With PromoRepublic, you can make multi-image posts to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn.


Pinterest and Google Business Profile don't support this option.

Check out the table below on how many images you can include per post according to social networks.

Below is a step-by-step example of how to create a 9-image post for LinkedIn.

There are several ways how you can start the post creation. For example, click on Create Post in the top bar menu or the blue New Post button in a specific time slot in the Calendar. Whichever you choose, you'll be directed to the post editor.

It is here where you upload the pictures from your desktop. Pick the desired ones or simply drag and drop them.

The image format should be .jpeg. Png format is not accepted.

Next, select the necessary pages.

If you select more than one social media platform, the image limit will differ. For example, if you pick Facebook, LinkedIn and Pinterest, you'll see one photo highlighted in blue to be used in Pinterest.

You can pick a different one within the uploaded images by tapping on the desired one.

Note that the selected photo will be used for both Pinterest. If you want different images for Pinterest and LinkedIn, then use the option to customize the post for each social platform.

You can also change the order of the uploaded photos - tap the arrow icon, hold, drag, and drop it.

Please, mind these important nuances when preparing multi-photo content.

  • You can upload a maximum of 10 pictures at a time. If you pick more, you will be prompted with such a message:

  • You can edit each picture separately. 

  • If you select LinkedIn and Pinterest, add 9 images, then 9 images will be posted on LinkedIn, and 1 image will be posted to Pinterest.

  • If you select Facebook and Twitter, add 10 images, then 10 images will be posted on Facebook, and 4 images will be posted to Twitter.

You can also post videos and/or GIFs, but only one file type per post. You cannot include both in one post. If you add a video, you can select its thumbnail. Check how here.
