In comparison to other popular blogging platforms like Blogger and WordPress, Tumblr is more focused on a user-friendly interface than customisation. Tumblr's posting options let you upload content without having to copy, paste or embed any HTML code. For photos, Tumblr specifically provides a unique feature that lets you create a photo slideshow as your post. When you create a photo slideshow on Tumblr, the slideshow itself will be the base of your post and you will not have the option to include a title.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Navigate to and log into your account.

  2. 2

    Click the "Photo" icon at the top of your Dashboard.

  3. 3

    Click "Add Another Photo" the same number of times as the number of photos in your slideshow. Tumblr lets you add up to 10 photos in a slideshow.

  4. 4

    Type any text you want to include with your slideshow into the "Caption" field.

  5. 5

    Type any tags related to your slideshow into the field in the column on the right.

  6. 6

    Click "Create post" to upload your photos and create your slideshow. Tumblr automatically puts navigation buttons in your slideshow.
