Carousel allows uploading multiple images simultaneously, which provides an easy-to-set-up and manage workflow for getting presentations from programs like Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote. Carousel cannot upload and display these presentation files directly; within each program, the presentation needs to be exported as images.
Exporting from Microsoft PowerPoint 365 (Windows-only)
Open your Presentation in PowerPoint
Click File → Export → Change File Type → then select “PNG Portable Network Graphics (*.png) → Save As
Select a location and press the Save button
When asked which slides you want to export, select “All Slides”
Navigate to the location you saved the presentation to, there will be a folder with the title of your presentation, which now includes all your slides as images. Right-click the folder and select Send to → Compressed (zipped) folder.
Once you have your .zip folder skip down to the Importing into Carousel section.
Exporting from Apple Keynote
Select File → Export To → Images…
Ensure the Images option is selected, the Slides: All option is set, the Format option is PNG, and Export with transparent backgrounds is Unchecked. Then click Save...
Give the export a name and then press Export.
Navigate to your folder, ensure all slides have been saved, then right-click the folder and select “Compress Items” to create a .zip of your presentation.
Continue to the Importing into Carousel section.
Importing into Carousel
Log into Carousel, navigate to the zone you want to display your presentation in, and click “New Bulletin” followed by “Uploaded.” Drag and drop or navigate to your .zip folder created earlier.
On the Change Bulletin Schedule dialog that pops up, select Cancel.
All your uploaded images will be selected by default, so enter the Actions menu and click Group.
At the Actions menu again, select Change Schedule, then click Change Schedule in the dialog.
Your bulletin group will be active at this point, so click the Active filter to see the group.
Optionally, you can open the group and rename it.
Your presentation is now uploaded in Carousel, and the group itself can be managed with bulletin actions for quick changes or deletion.
