Using Elementor Templates in A Carousel Widget

First, you need to create the templates to use in your carousel.  

To do this:

Add a new 1 column section, drag an image widget to your section from your Widgets area. Select the image widget and under Content, choose the iWatch White image from your library. Select the column and under Style, give it white for Background color.  Select the section next and under Layout, set Column Gap to no gap. Right-click the section and save it as a template (06:29), give it a name (iWatch White), and save.

Select the column again and go to Style > Background Color, give it black. Select the image widget and replace the iWatch White image with the iWatch Black image. Right-click on the section and save as a template, name it and save.

Repeat this same process and create a template for iWatch Gold.

After creating your templates you’ll be able to echo them in the carousel widget.
