They say that if your pictures are beautiful and sharp you don’t need to spend extra efforts trying to improve the looks of your gallery. Nothing can mess up the look of your website if you take some really great photos, right? If you nodded in agreement reading that sentence I have some bad news for you. An unattractive gallery layout could actually ruin appearance of your web page thus spoil the first impression of the visitor. To avoid such troubles – think carefully when choosing the type of gallery appearance. Image layouts are like clothes on a woman – she is beautiful without them, but a proper dress could make her look like a celebrity.

So, it’s time to get back to the images layouts. The “Images Layout” widget of JetElements plugin has an intuitively understandable interface, so you won’t have any trouble using it. Come on, let me show you.
First of all, go to the WP admin dashboard, open the “Pages” tab, and click “Edit with Elementor” button on the page you want to put some great image layout on. In the Elementor menu choose the JetElements section and find the “Images Layout” widget.
Drag it and drop it to the work field (yeah, it’s just that simple). Basically, this element looks like this:
In the “Content” tab of the menu, there are two sections: “Settings” and “Items”. In the first one, you can change the number of columns displayed on the page. The type of the layout is also changed right here. In the “Items” section you can add images to the layout.
Click on the item and add picture, icon, title, description and link. You can watch the changes in the layout at just the same moment you do it.
When you’ve finished adding images it is time to play a little with the layouts. Here’s what the grid image layout looks like. All the pictures are cut to a similar size and placed in accurate rows. The grid is the strictest and most official layout of all.
Masonry is a little messier than the grid. The pictures have a similar width, but height is proportional to the real size of the picture.
Justify is similar to masonry, just vice versa. All the pictures have the same height, but the width is proportional to the original variant.
If you still don’t catch something – you should watch our video about adding a grid, masonry, or justify image layout to the page. We show the whole process with the tiniest details, so you will definitely be able to repeat all the actions.
