Making websites has become such an easy task these days. With the Beaver Builder page builder plugin, anyone can make a website that is the envy of a professional developer. And yet, some of you might not know how to make use of these plugins to their maximum capacity. Adding images is one such task.
Images are the best proof of a business’s authenticity, just like how a beautiful and easy-to-use website is proof of the coder’s skills. It is so simple yet so many business pages choose to leave them out when building their webpage.
Since you’re reading this article already, we assume you want to change that. We’ve got just the guide for you. We got it all: from a brief introduction to plugins benefits and Addons to detailed information about gallery plugins and how to use them. Keep reading to get the 101 on adding image galleries to your website.
But first, it’s time for a brief introduction to some key terms we’re going to be using.
As you might already know, plugins are the software codes that allow you to extend the features of a program. They are made to support customizations that help the user edit the existing settings of the program.
Beaver Builder is a page builder plugin for WordPress. You can use the plugin when you want to create, edit and customize your website on WordPress.
You can make changes to your webpage, observe them on the front end and watch them go live with the click of a button. It has preset templates for entire web pages or smaller sections of the page. All the web pages you create and edit are also seamlessly adapted to multiple devices with the mobile response feature. The best part is you can create customized templates and save them for later use. Or you could also use the Beaver Builder Theme and Beaver Themer to get added benefits from the plugins.
Addons and plugins are terms used interchangeably and their functions do overlap. However, the key difference to remember is the purpose of an Addon is unique to the program it is built for/ supports.
With the Beaver Builder Addon, you can easily insert an Envira Gallery in any page or post you’re creating with the Beaver Builder page builder. The Envira Gallery Beaver Builder Addon has been made specifically for giving you a customizable Gallery and features supported on the Beaver Builder plugin.
Creating an image gallery includes many different steps depending on where you start from. Below are the step-by-step instructions from basic installation to adding the gallery on the website and deleting images from it.
If the problem isn’t solved, then try to refresh the page and reach out to the Envira Gallery support team.
If your Addon is already installed, you only need to activate it. Follow the same steps as you used for installing it.
Envira Gallery has three licenses available: Basic, Plus, Pro. To get access to the Beaver Builder Addon you need to have subscribed to the Pro license. You also need the latest versions of WordPress, Envira Gallery, and Beaver Builder to use the Beaver Builder Addon for inserting an Envira Gallery.
Think about it, would you trust a website that has no images on it? You wouldn’t even like to look at the page. Images and image galleries make websites look professional. Your customers are used to seeing high-definition images of their favourite celebs, friends, and even Amazon products. Do you think they aren’t going to click on that image gallery link? That’s unlikely.
Whether it is product images, demo videos, or company activities, your clients want to see it. If they can’t find it, they won’t convert from viewers to consumers.
The thing clients remember the most about your brand is the images associated with it. This is why successful businesses use good images to increase their visual appeal. This includes your logo, brand name, font, color, and theme to the photo gallery on your website.
Another reason why an image gallery is mandatory for your website is when it is relevant to your profession. If your business services include photography, videography, camera, or editing work, then you must showcase it. There is no way for a client to know of your skill level unless they see it first-hand. Choosing the best images and making multiple image galleries can be like making your online portfolio.

The influence of images on the human mind is huge. The speed and amount of data that we consume and process through an image are higher than that of textual data. If you want to stay in the business then you better start leveraging visual data to your benefit. Fortunately, you have plugins like Envira Gallery to create images and Addons like Beaver Builder to easily add them onto your website.
