Introducing images into your LinkedIn posts can significantly amplify your reach and engagement.

In fact, the right visuals might increase your post's visibility by up to 20% and, if it's a good selfie, by even 30%.

More so, custom images tend to push engagement higher by 45%, helping you cement your authority.

But how exactly do you post multiple photos on LinkedIn, and what should you keep in mind?

In this guide, we'll walk you through the process and give you some pro tips to enhance your content strategy.

Let's get started!

How to Post Multiple Photos on LinkedIn?

Posting on LinkedIn is a great way to share your professional achievements, updates, and insights with your network.

To make your posts more engaging by adding multiple photos, here's a straightforward guide on how to do it.

Uploading Your Media

At the top of your LinkedIn homepage, locate the share box and click on the media icon. This is your starting point for sharing photos or videos.


Then, click on "Upload from computer" and browse your files to select the images you want to share. LinkedIn allows you to choose up to 20 images for a single post or one video per post.


๐Ÿ“Œ NOTE: To upload your photos faster, you can drag and drop (or copy and paste) them directly into the share box.

Editing and Adjusting Your Photos

Once your photos are uploaded, LinkedIn offers several editing options to enhance your post:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Crop, straighten, apply filters, or adjust the lighting of your photo by clicking on "Edit".


๐Ÿ‘‰ Use the "Tag" option to mention other members or organizations in your photo.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Improve accessibility by adding alternative text with the "ALT" button for those using voice-over screen readers.

๐Ÿ‘‰ At this point you can modify your image selection with the "Duplicate" and "Delete" buttons. If you wish to add more images, simply click on a โ€œPlusโ€ button.


Finalizing Your Post

๐Ÿ‘‰ Post Settings: After clicking "Next", you'll see a dropdown menu next to your name. Here, you can adjust who sees your post and who can comment on it.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Crafting Your Message: Optionally, type out what you want to discuss in the "What do you want to talk about?" field.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Posting: Once you're satisfied with your post and its settings, hit "Post" or a clock icon to schedule your post.


Understanding Photo Requirements

To ensure your photos look their best, be mindful of LinkedIn's requirements:

  • Size Limit: The maximum upload size is 5MB.
  • Dimensions: Photos should be at least 552(w) x 276(h) pixels. For optimal engagement, aim for 1080(w) pixels in width.
  • Aspect Ratio: Keep your photos within a 3:1 to 4:5 width-to-height ratio to avoid cropping.
  • Quality: High-resolution photos are recommended to avoid low-quality appearances.

Other Relevant Information to Remember

๐Ÿ‘‰ For multi-photo posts, the first image plays a significant role in determining the layout of your post.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Depending on the orientation and size of the initial photo, subsequent images will adjust accordingly to create an aesthetically pleasing layout.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Remember, each post can contain a maximum of 20 photos, but you cannot mix images and URL links in the same post.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Choose one type of content per post to share with your audience.
