The Photo Gallery widget allows you to add multiple images to your website. When images in the Photo Gallery are clicked, they can be opened in a light box gallery, or linked to a page on your website, a website URL, a popup, an anchor, an email address or more. You can add titles, descriptions and alternative text to each image.


Add the Photo Gallery widget to your Website Builder. To learn more about adding widgets to your website, see Adding Widgets. Once the widget has been placed, the Content Editor appears.

Customize the Photo Gallery

You can also add rounded corners, display the full image on the gallery, add shadows, and change the image hover effect and animation (available in new widget).                                      photogallery8_en-US.png

Considerations - New Photo Gallery

Is my gallery widget the new one?

A new photo gallery widget was deployed on September 24th. If your gallery has been created after September 24th or if you have updated the widget already, you are using the new gallery widget. 

If your photo gallery was created before September 24th, you have the option to update your widget or use the old Photo Gallery widget settings to edit your gallery. To switch to the new photo gallery, click Update Widget. If you choose to update the widget, a backup of the site will be created automatically.

What if I don’t want to update my widget?

You do not have to update your widget. You will be able to edit your widget using the previous widget editor.

What if I reload a backup or use the undo feature?

If you reload a backup or undo while editing an existing Photo Gallery Widget, you will need to re-update the widget. Keep in mind that if you do choose to update an existing photo gallery widget, a site backup will be created automatically.

The hover effect doesn’t work on Internet Explorer, what can I do?

Unfortunately, Internet Explorer doesn’t support this feature.

How do I hide the ‘share’ option?

You can hide the share option in the Design Editor under the Frame section. This will remove the share button that users would see when clicking on an image in the photo gallery.photogallery12_en-US.png
