In this guide, we explain how to add an Image carousel to your Taplink page. Follow the instructions to add and adjust a carousel. Or you can go right to the instructions you need:

An Image carousel is what lets you show multiple images, taking less space on your page. You can add a description and a link to each image. This is how it looks on Taplink pages:

How to add an image to the carousel

Upload the first image to the carousel. Tap Upload image and select an image on the device.

Add a new image to the carousel:

  1. Tap + New slide.
  2. Tap Upload image and select an image on your device.

Add more images in the same way if necessary. There can be up to 15 images in an Image carousel. This is what a carousel with multiple images looks like:

Select an image slide for editing

Switch to the image slide you want to edit. Swipe slides to the right or left, or tap a relevant dot under slides.

Add text to the image slides

You can add titles and descriptions to slides. First of all, turn on Add description:

After that, the new fields Headline and Description appear under slides. Fill in these fields under every single slide.

This is how a carousel with headlines and descriptions looks on a Taplink page:

You can add links under images. Activate Add link for this:

Now new fields Link text, Action, and Website have appeared under each slide. Note, if you turn on Add Link, then you need to specify a link for each slide.

Add a link to the current image slide:

  1. Specify the displayed link text.
  2. In the Action list, select what will happen when users tap the link. We chose to direct users to a web page.
  3. Paste a link.

Add links to other image slides in the same way. This is how a carousel with links looks on the page:

Set the image size

You can choose the size of the images. The size is applied to all images in the carousel.

Choose the image size in the Image size menu:

Automate slide transition

Slides can advance to the next one automatically. Enable this in the Automatic slide transition section. Tap the box next to Enable. In the field on the left, you can set the time during which a slide displays before it advances to the next one.

Now the slides change each other after the specified time. The last slide advances to the first one in the carousel, and then all the slides are shown again in the same order.

Well, you can call it a day now, an Image carousel has been added. A row of image slides with texts and links has appeared on the page. Next, we explain additional settings for accurate adjustment.
