An image is worth a thousand words. A gallery – one million (* estimated). Elementor has always had a basic WordPress gallery, and now it’s time to advance to the next level.
Introducing the Pro Image Gallery widget for WordPress.
Hope you’re sitting down for this, because there are lots of cool features to unpack.
wow that's Fast!
Original JS Engine We Built From Scratch
We took our time rolling out this widget, because we wanted to make sure it lived up to the highest performance metrics. In fact, we built our own original JS library from the bottom up. The result: a super-lightweight and optimized engine which we’ve also released as a separate open-source GitHub project.
Give it the 'Bricks' Look
Regular, Masonry & Justified Gallery Layouts
You now have 3 layout options:
- Grid, based on an aspect ratio of your choosing.
- Justified, to set the height for each row, and varying width per image.
- Masonry, to maintain the same image width and varying heights.
Flexible, Responsive Galleries
Complete Gallery Design Control
Show any combination of content as part of the gallery: incorporate the title, caption, alt, description or keep it clean. You can adjust just about anything with the style and layout of the content, with full control of typography and positioning. Use CSS filters and blend modes to give your gallery a consistent stylish look.
As with any Elementor widget, Pro Gallery offers extensive responsive design controls, letting you adapt each gallery to mobile, tablet and desktop views. There are also many dynamic features, which we will cover in-depth in later tutorials.
Why Settle for One?
Multiple Gallery Filtering
Why settle for one gallery? Build a multiple gallery display that includes a filter bar, so your visitors can easily navigate between different image categories. Worried about setting the same image across several categories? Once the visitor goes back to the full display option, those repeating images will only appear once.
