Notes on Image Carousels in new Google Sites

  • For best results choose images of the same size and aspect ratio so all images work well on each slide.
  • You cannot add links to the image carousel.
  • You cannot set the time to transition between each image.
  • If you pick images from a Google Photos album or Google Drive folder then these are not connected in any way to to the source so you do not get more images as you add more images to those Albums or Folders.
