In this guide, we will create an Instagram-like sliding photo gallery. 

There are many ways to achieve this, but here are the basics.

Prerequisites

Step 1 : Setup Images

Set images horizontally, group them, and place them inside the Phone Mockup folder. 

Step 2: Create mask to display one image at a time

  1.  Create a Rectangle the same size of the carousel you want to create 
  2.  Place it under the Images Group you just created 
  3.  With the Rectangle layer and Images folder selected, click “Mask” in the toolbar

Step 3: Add Controls

  • These controls will trigger the interaction and change the images to the right or left.
  • Place these controls on top of the Images folder. 

Step 4: Select Phone Mockup folder and open it in the Interaction editor.

Step 5: Create a State for each image

In the Editor, place an image on every state by sliding the Image group to the left.

Step 6: Connect Images

Connect the control arrows to the previous or next image/state.
