If you have some experience in web-development, you will agree that some websites will not work properly without a good gallery. Our development team prepared something special for those who struggle. It’s a plugin that will give you all the necessary tools to add various kinds of photo galleries to your site with a single click of a mouse.
You just need to create a gallery and add it to any page or post you like. It will be a perfect solution for blogs or online stores to create compelling portfolios and presentations. TM Photo Gallery allows you to:
Once you’ve downloaded the plugin from the WordPress plugin repository, use this quick installation overview to get started.
Once everything is installed, you will see the following menu on the sidebar:
When you enter the Media Library section, you will see the working area of our plugin. It looks like this, and it’s very simple in use:
There are three major blocks here:
The purpose of the right block contains all the settings of the selected element. So no matter what item you select, all the setting will be displayed there, on the right.
Also, note that any image you upload through the Media section will be available in the TM Photo Gallery, so you will be able to add these images to your galleries and vice versa. This is very convenient if you want to show your new portfolio works in your new post or create a separate gallery using the pictures from one of your blog posts.
Sets, Albums and Photos, have common settings:
If you open any uploaded picture, you will notice one more feature that we included to make the work with your gallery pictures easier - Photo Editor.
The editor has two basic functions:
With these, you will not have to edit your image in some separate editor and upload it back to the gallery, so it will save your time in many situations.
I’m sure all of your want to know how to create and manage separate galleries with the help of our plugin; I will show you, no worries! So let’s move to ‘Galleries’ section.
To create a gallery, just click on the big ‘Add Gallery’ button. Yeah, it’s that simple!
Each gallery can include sets and separate photos, so whenever you open your gallery, you will see all the available sets and pictures, it’s up to you to select what should be included and displayed on the gallery page.
On the right sidebar, you can see the files, sets, and albums added to the gallery. You can also delete them from the gallery or remove all the images. To remove a single image, you need to check it and press ‘Delete’ or ‘Remove all’ button.
Personally, one of my favorite options on the gallery setting page is the possibility to choose the grid system. I mean, seriously, this tiny detail will make your gallery look fancy.
Speaking of the fancy things, do you want your gallery to stand out? Not a problem, we worked on adding cool animation effects for the grid and hover, feel free to customize the look of your gallery as you want.
Navigation, Lightbox and Display setting will help you adjust the gallery appearance for your needs.
Let me guess, you want to know how to display the actual gallery on your website, right? Our developers worked on making it as easy as possible for you, there are only two quick steps:
After that, a shortcode will be added to the editor. For example:
Where id - an identification of the displayed gallery. Display, Filters, and Pagination options are taken from the settings of the selected gallery.
And this is how the gallery will look on the front-end. Your website visitors will be able to filter the pictures by tags or categories and navigate the gallery using the pagination on the bottom.
