Using Hopper HQ, you are able to schedule and automatically publish carousel posts to Instagram.

The most popular way to autopost carousel posts is using a social media scheduling tool like Hopper HQ.

Hopper HQ allows you to create and plan your posts in advance, so that whilst you work, sleep, eat and play, Hopper HQ will be publishing your flawless content automatically ✨


Since its launch in 2017, carousel posts have become one of Instagram's hottest features. 

Giving users a way to publish content organised around a theme or event to their audience, which followers can then swipe through. We've seen a rise in the number of businesses and brands utilising the feature, creating albums that tell a story or showcasing new collections of products. 

Carousel posts have taken the pressure off posting the perfect photo and allow users to get even more creative with their content.


How to schedule a carousel post on Instagram?

1. To create a carousel post, begin by selecting the 'Create' button, at the top of your Hopper HQ dashboard, and select 'Post'.

2. Once you've uploaded the first image/video, hit the 'Create Carousel Post' icon to the right when you hover over your image.

You will need to upload a single 'cover' post first, ready to add more content to your carousel.

3. You can either upload images one-by-one or bulk upload your content to be added to your carousel post. 

To add more content to your carousel simply select the '+' button (shown below) and upload additional images or videos.

4. Not happy with the order of your carousel? Reordering is easy.

Drag and drop your content into your preferred order, ready to be published at the scheduled time. 


If Instagram isn't your focus, you can also schedule carousel posts for Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest by following the same steps. However, please be aware that the maximum number of videos and images you can add to a carousel varies by channel.

For Instagram, you can upload a combination of up to 10 videos and images to your carousel.

For Facebook, you can upload 1 video or 10 images to your carousel.

For Twitter, you can upload 6 video or images to your carousel.

For Pinterest, you can upload up to 5 images to your carousel.
