Add gallery to your website

In order to add a gallery to your website, click on the Image icon in the toolbar on the left side of the builder, drag and drop the gallery icon to your website.



There will be added some default photos in the gallery . You can easily change them in the "Change images" section.



The way one picture changes to another:

  • Slide - a current photo will move to the side and be replaced by a new one.
  • Fade- a current photo will fade away and a new one will take its place.
  • Crossfade - a current photo will smoothly change to a new one.
  • Explosion – a current photo will be divided into many pieces, change to a new one and go back to being whole. 
  • Windmill – a current photo will be divided into four pieces, which move in different directions and reveal a new photo. 
  • Door– a current photo will be divided into four pieces, which move on sides and reveal a new photo.
  • Tils – a current photo will be divided into four pieces, which fall and reveal a new photo.


 Crop type

Adjust how photo fits the gallery frame:

  • Fit - a whole photo fits the gallery frame. There might be left some empty spaces in the frame.
  • Crop - a photo fits the whole gallery frame. There are no empty spaces in the frame, but some parts of the picture might get cropped.
  • Stretch - a photo gets unproporctonally streched so it fits the whole frame. There are no empty spaces in the frame and no parts of the picture get cropped.
