Can You Rearrange Photos On Facebook After Posting?

One of the most used features on Facebook is the “Photos” feature which allows users to share special/important life events. 

You may post photos and realize that the way they appear was not your intended order, or just not to your preference, which begs the question; can you rearrange photos after posting them? 

In this article, I will talk about the possibility of rearranging or changing the order of your photos after posting them on Facebook and how to do it. 

Yes, you can rearrange your photos on Facebook after posting them by editing your post and then reordering the photos to your desired order, or you can post photos using Facebook albums, or you can delete the posted photos and re-upload them.

How to Create Photo Posts on Facebook

Facebook lets you share your experiences, important moments, joys, and not-so-good moments (if you wish to) with others through photos. Photo sharing is widely used and is an effective way of expression. 

So if you are planning to share your photos for the first time, or just need a reminder of how to do so, here we go:

Open the Facebook app, and go to the new post. You can do this in the ‘what’s on your mind’ bar. When you tap the bar you will get a create post page.

Tap on Add photos/videos to go to your storage on your computer or phone, choose the photos you would like to include in the post then tap Next. 

You can also select and drag the photos you want from your computer to your post.

3 Ways to Rearrange Photos on Facebook

The good news is that you can change the order of photos in your post at any time! To change the order, you have a few options to try:- 

1. Re-upload the Photos in a Different Order

The quickest way to deal with your unhappiness about a Facebook photo post is to delete and re-upload the photos. 

On your Facebook post, as you choose to add photos, you have the option to use the drag and drop function, ignore the drag and drop and instead select the add photos manually.

With this, you can select the photos in the order you want them to appear. You can also do this on the phone or tablet and select from the gallery in your preferred order. 

2. Edit the Post and Reorganize the Photos

If you would rather not re-upload your photos, you can still edit the post and reorganize them.

Go to the post you wish to edit and click on the 3 dots (…) then select Edit post > Edit all.

Q. Can you see who viewed your Facebook posts? 

Facebook does not have a specific feature that reveals who viewed a post on a regular Facebook account. 

But you can have an idea of who viewed your post by checking out the comments and likes on your post. This may not reveal everybody who viewed it but at least it gives you an idea. 

However, you can see how many people viewed and engaged with your post on a Facebook group or a Facebook page. 

To see these, you will have to open the page or group in which you are an admin and select the Insights option. 

Facebook Page Insights

From the Insights page, you can see the count of viewers and engagement on particular posts.

Q. Can you see who viewed your Facebook video? 

Yes, you can see who viewed your Facebook video

On your Facebook page, open the video you want to check out, on the right-hand side above the ‘like’ and ‘comment’ options, you should be able to see the views count next to the eye icon (👁).

Facebook Video Views

Q. Can you add photos you already posted on Facebook to an album?

Yes, you can.

Go to that Facebook post and open the photo you want to add to an(other) album.

In the right corner tap the 3 dots and select Move to another album.

Select the album you want from the drop-down and then tap the Move photo button.

Q. What is the maximum number of pictures in a Facebook post?

There is no limit to the number of pictures you can add to your Facebook post. 

However, note that adding a very large number of photos to a single post could make it challenging for viewers to navigate.

If you have a large amount of photos to post it would be best to make use of Facebook albums to foster better navigation.


It is good that the Facebook platform gives a great opportunity to users to share experiences and events with friends and family. And with this comes many useful features including the ability to share your photos in the way you desire even after posting. 

As seen in this article, changing the order of Facebook photos in a post is quite possible and easy. 

You can do this by reposting the photos, using albums, and moving photos within that particular post to get the order that you desire. 

With these features, you can enjoy sharing to your satisfaction.
