anna.selway, I haven't heard of anyone using this product, but I'm going to share this post with the Instructional Designers, Canvas Admins, and Canvas Developers groups in the Community to see if anyone from there can help.
Otherwise, here are a couple of posts in the Community that seemed related to what you are wanting:
Hope this helps!
anna.selway, I'm not familiar with Owl Carousel either, but I wonder if you could create something akin to an image carousel by tweaking the code @G_Petruzella provided in his instructions for a video carousel: Video Carousel: code-snippet
Also, I changed the format of this post to a discussion, since your prompt is unlikely to elicit a single uniquely-correct answer.
anna.selway, now that I think of it, maybe the most direct way to embed an auto-advance 'carousel' would be to drop your pictures onto a Google Slides presentation, then when you get the embed code, you'll have the option to set 'auto-advance' every 3, 5, ... seconds. Works like a charm - here's an example you can check out: World Beyond Screens: TechFest 2016
I love this idea! Just FYI, the "Video Carousel" Stefanie mentions is static - I'm not sure, but often when people refer to a carousel they have in mind something that'll auto-advance the pics. If you don't need the auto-advance feature, then go for it! But if you did have that in mind, then my video carousel isn't the right solution for ya. 😕
Good luck and let us know how it goes! 🙂
