Stacked Images

When sharing images from Pixrit, you can share one image at a time or combine multiple images into a single post. We call combining multiple images a Stack.

Simply select the number of images you want to combine into one post, click the stack icon, and they will combine into a stack and then share as one post. For Instagram, we will email you those images and then you can quickly download to your phone and then add those images together to each Instagram post to create an album.

Creating A Stack

 


How Networks Handle Stacked Images

Each network handles multiple images a little differently.

Facebook: Facebook will post all your images in one status update.

Google+: Posting a stack to Google+ will send you all your images in a single email. Google+ allows you to share multiple images in a single post, so it’s up to you if you want to post your images individually or all together.

Twitter: Twitter only allows 4 images per tweet. If you have more than 4 images in a stack, Twitter will only post the first 4.

Instagram: Posting a stack to Instagram will send you all your images in a single email. Instagram allows you to post up to 10 images in a single post, so it’s up to you if you want to post your images individually or all together.

Pinterest: Pinterest does not allow a group of images to be shared in a single post. All images are posted to Pinterest individually by Pixrit.

 


Captions + Hashtags For Stacked Images

When you stack images together, some options in the caption popup change.

Facebook

When sharing to your timeline, Facebook allows a post caption as well as individual image captions. When you stack images together to share to your Facebook timeline, your post caption will be your status update, and you’ll be presented with both options. However, if you are sharing the group of images to an album, you cannot have a post caption.

 

Google+

Google+ does not recognize individual image captions. All images in a stack will post to Google+ with just one caption. This information automatically syncs to the other images in the stack, so as you arrow through you’ll see the same caption and hashtags.

 

Twitter

Twitter has a maximum of 4 images per post. Twitter does not recognize individual image captions. All images in a stack will post to Twitter with just one caption.

 

Instagram

Instagram now allows you to publish multiple photos in a single post. Since Pixrit emails you all photos in a stack at the same time, the choice is yours! You can edit each image’s caption and hashtags, or sync them using the “sync images in this stack” button.

 

Pinterest

Pinterest does not allow multiple images to be published as a single post. Instead, it posts multiple images separately at the same time. You can edit each image’s caption and hashtags, or sync them using the “sync images in this stack” button.
