As promised, we are continuing to add more and more features to Elementor. Today I am happy to introduce you to two new widgets added to Elementor. We are adding two visual widgets that perform the same function as slider, image and carousel plugins. These are the Image Carousel widget and Image Gallery widget.

Image Carousel

The Image Carousel widget lets you add a collection of images that rotate in a sliding carousel. This is a great widget for displaying images or a set of logos that rotate with animation on WordPress. You can create a carousel that displays a single slide that interchanges automatically or with navigation buttons. Another option is to create a carousel with various image columns that interchange according to your custom setting.

If you delve deeper into this widget, you’ll find that we’ve added complete control over every element and setting in the carousel. This is really helpful to make the slide fit perfectly into any page design you create. Among these settings are: Image Size, Slides to Show, Slides to Scroll, Image Stretch, Navigation by Arrows, Dots or Both. You also have control over: slide effect, speed, direction of the rotation, autoplay and more.

Here’s a bonus: if you set the Carousel to display one image at a time, it functions exactly the same as a regular slider. You can use it to create a large image slider for your homepage or landing pages.

Image Gallery

The Image Gallery widget lets you add image galleries into the page, in much the same way as the WordPress integrated gallery, only with much more control and without the need to use pesky shortcodes.

When you add a gallery you need to set the number of columns from 1 to 10, and choose whether the image will link to the image file, the image page or will not be linked at all. You can also randomly arrange the order of the images.

This widget also includes advanced design settings that let you set a custom spacing between images or change the caption design.

Coming Soon

We are currently working on an animation feature that will let you add animation effects to any widget on the page. This way you can create amazing interactive pages, as well as accentuate certain areas that you want the visitor to focus on.
