Image Gallery Widget

UAE’s Image Gallery widget lets you create an attractive gallery with some advanced features.

It supports default WordPress Gallery. You can use WordPress Gallery features like uploading an image with simple drag-drop, selecting multiple images and re-ordering them.

You can take a look at our demo to see how the widget displays image gallery beautifully – Demo Page.

Before getting started, make sure to enable widget from UAE settings. (?)

Some Rich features of the Widget are –

Now, use filters like Instagram on your website’s image gallery. Filters can be applied to the original image, and also as a hover effect. You can also manage image overlay color. The setting is available under Style (tab) > Thumbnail >  Image Effect


Grid / Masonry/ Justified / Carousel Layout

Choose the best layout to make your gallery look stunning.
