What is an Instagram carousel post?

An Instagram carousel is a post with multiple photos that can be viewed by swiping or clicking. Why choose an Instagram carousel? Allow your brand to give step-by-step instructions, show the product from different angles, build intrigue, and show 'before' and 'afters'.

The Instagram carousel can be published in square, landscape, and portrait formats, but keeping all images the same size is recommended. The format of the first image will change the size of the following images used in the post. Instagram carousel sizes are as follows:

  • Landscape: 1080 x 566 pixels

  • Portrait: 1080 x 1350 pixels

  • Square: 1080 x 1080 pixels

  • Aspect ratio: landscape (1.91:1), square (1:1), vertical (4:5)

  • Recommended image size: Width of 1080 pixels, height between 566 and 1350 pixels (depending on whether the image is landscape or portrait)

Before you start the carousel creation, please ensure that your Instagram profile is a business (Professional) one. Auto-posting of carousels to Creator and Personal accounts isn't supported. Note that an Instagram business page must be connected to our platform accordingly (check the image below).

Or you can diversify the type of connection by the color of the small Instagram icon - dark red stands for Personal, and light red stands for Business.

How does it work?

To schedule an Instagram carousel post in PromoRepublic, open the post editor and choose the necessary page. You can upload up to 10 images in jpeg format per post.

Ensure you haven't selected any video files when selecting images in bulk. Otherwise, you'll see a message as follows.

Write a caption and add the first comment to it if you want.

Once published, you will see this post as a Carousel in your Instagram app.

Important notes:

  • You can't include images and videos in one carousel post.

  • Carousel posts cannot be boosted.

We hope it's been helpful.
