How to Schedule Instagram Carousel Posts in Sked and Auto Publish

Photo of Dunja LazicDunja Lazic Posted

Sometimes one photo just doesn’t tell the whole story, which is why Sked (formerly Schedugram) lets you schedule Instagram carousel posts from your desktop browser. 

So, whether you want to share your favorite moments from an event or give an inside look into a new product, just choose the images/videos you want to share, upload to Sked and let us do the rest.

Keep in mind that carousel posts always use square images. You don’t need to crop them before uploading, but we will apply the same crop style that Instagram does when they are uploaded (a center-weighted square crop).

UPDATE: Instagram now supports landscape and portrait images to be uploaded into carousels. Sked supports both landscape and portrait carousels, but keep in mind Instagram crops all of the “later” images/videos to the same aspect ratio as the first item – so for best results, make sure they are all the same aspect ratio!

What’s more, the new Sked allows users to post their Multiple Images Posts/Carousels to Facebook too, and all in one go!

Scheduling Instagram Carousel Posts – Step by Step Walkthrough

To schedule Instagram carousel posts, login to your Sked account (or start a 7-day free trial) then proceed to the Upload Post Dashboard and choose the accounts you wish to publish to. Using Sked, you can publish your carousel post to Instagram, Facebook and soon Twitter, simultaneously.

Then select “Multiple Images/Carousel Post” in the left menu of the “Upload Media” section. Proceed by uploading your desired images. Click ‘Continue.’

If you want to post a unique set of images to each social media channel you can do so as well. Simply disable the “Use the same image for all selected accounts” feature, and proceed by uploading your images.

After reviewing your carousel’s images, proceed by cropping and editing each of your posts within the same screen. Switch between each post by clicking on each carousel image at the left of your editing window.

    1. Hi Jeanne, nice to meet you 🙂 It’s not currently possible to delete specific images after choosing them but I forwarded this request to our tech team!

    1. Hi Kimberly! You can tag people on the first image in the carousel but not in images 2-10. I hope this helps 🙂

  1. Hi team. Do scheduled Carousels auto-post? Are there any post types that don’t post automatically? Cheers

    1. Hi Alyce! All posts scheduled with Schedugram get posted automatically, including photos, videos, carousels and Stories! Hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions!

  2. Hi, I’m on the trial version of schedugram and I cannot see the carousel image icon as an option when editing a new post. Is this only available for paid users?

    1. Hi Stephanie

      No, it’s not a paid user feature (all users get all features!). You should see it when you are uploading from ‘upload posts’. If you aren’t, drop our team a chat message or email support and we’ll have a look.
