How To Access Facebook’s Photo Carousel
Hey Online Beauty Bosses, thought I’d give you an update on Facebook’s Photo Carousel.
Facebook has a tendency to move things around and the Photo Carousel seems to be one of those features that's always getting relocated. It’s still available you just need to know where to find it.
Originally the photo carousel was easily accessed when creating a regular page post, then Facebook took it away for a while, then brought it back, then moved it all together! Like, make up your mind Facebook!!
So in this Step-by-Step “How To” we’ll go over where to find it. There are actually 2 places!
Now you may already be familiar with the Facebook Carousel, but if not here some of the features that make it so appealing:
- You can load multiple images and viewers can swipe to advance to the next image
- Each image can have its own clickable link so you can take viewers to your Avon online store that corresponds to the image.
- Each image can have its own custom description
- The image carousel is only available for Facebook pages.
As mentioned there are two places you can find this feature. Both can be found on Desktop.
I haven’t been able to find the feature on “Mobile”, so if anyone does come across it on mobile please share with us!
The first place you should be able to access the carousel is over on your Facebook Business Page.
Access From Your Facebook Page
On desktop go to your page and on the top of the page click where it says “More” then click “Publishing Tools”.
Then from there you’ll click the “CREATE POST” button and select the “PHOTO/VIDEO” option.
From there just scroll to find the Carousel feature.
Now the second way to access the Carousel is through Facebook’s Creator Studio.
Access From Facebook Creator Studio
Facebook Creator is a desktop app that allows you to post and schedule to your Facebook Pages as well as schedule posts to Instagram. Currently it’s only available on Desktop.
For more info on Facebook Creator you can view the Online Beauty Bosses article:

To access the carousel go to Creator Studio at www.Facebook.com/CreatorStudio then select the “CREATE POST” button.
Click on the page you want to post to (if you have more than one Facebook page) then select the “MULTIMEDIA” post option.
. . . and choose the “Create A Photo Carousel” option.
