Photo galleries allow you to showcase images in an interesting and marvelous way. As a result, your photos are aesthetically-pleasing enough to catch the user’s eye.

In this guide, we are going to consider all Gallery types. And start from the Standard Gallery. So, select it and push the Save button. Don’t worry you can easily change to another type later.
You can change the Gallery type in the special drop-down menu. Navigate to Main -> Type -> Gallery Type.
Here is how the Vertical Gallery looks like.
Horizontal Gallery is the most suitable for images with landscape view.
Fixed Columns Gallery
Fixed Columns Type is the best choice if you need to set a gallery in percentage, for example, for a responsive site. So, you can choose the Number of Columns both for page and given width of the screen.
Here is the final result.
With a Mosaic type, you can configure all the gallery and images settings like position, width, radius, etc.
So, try the different types and select the most suitable for your business needs!
