You can now post carousel-style image/video sets to Instagram on the Tailwind mobile application using the Post Notification method! 🎉
Note: carousel posting is not available for Auto Post.
There are a few different ways you can start your carousel-style post:
Select a photo from your phone's photo library to upload to the app
Tap the "Publisher" tab, then select an empty time slot to upload an image
Choose Create A Post on the "Home" tab to upload an image
In this example, we'll use the Create A Post button on the "Home" page. From here, you can select Choose a Photo and upload one of the photos you want to use for your carousel-style post.
Now, we can navigate to the "Publisher" tab and tap on the newly created draft to open the Post Editor. From here, you can select Add More Images and select up to 10 images to make up your carousel post. On the "Arrange Carousel Post" screen, you can drag-and-drop the images in any order you like!
Now that you have your carousel-style images in order, you can begin adding your caption, hashtags, and select the time that you would like to get your notification to post! Remember, your carousel post will use post a Push Notification, as this won't work for the Auto Post Method. 👍
Why did only a single image appear when I got a notification?
Due to the way push notifications work, the additional images will be saved to your phone's photo library. Once you get taken to Instagram, you can then select those additional images when you create a Carousel post.
Why did my caption disappear?
When opening up Instagram during the "Post Now" process, the caption will get saved to the phone's clipboard. From here, you can tap inside the "Caption" area in the Instagram app and paste the saved caption.
Where did all the other features go when making posts?
If you're looking for features like adding hashtags in first comment, tagging other users, cross-posting to Facebook/Pinterest, or adding a location, those features are only available with single posts that use auto post.
