How to Apply Photo Effects to Galleries and Albums

Do you want to apply some cool effects to your Automatic gallery images? With Envira’s new Automatic Layout option you can automatically apply photo effects to galleries and albums by following this guide. Let’s begin!



Step 1 – Enable Automatic (Justified) Layout

First, let’s start by creating a new gallery or select an existing gallery to edit.

From the edit screen, select the Config tab.

Select the Config tab to begin configuring your justified image gallery with Envira.

Next, within the Config tab select Automatic from the Number of Gallery Columns dropdown field. This will enable Envira’s justified grid layout to automatically determine the best number of images to display in each row of your gallery.

Important: Photo Effects are available only when using Envira’s justified grid layout, learn more about using justified layout.

Step 2 – Select the Gallery Theme (Photo Effect)

Q: Is there any limit to the size of the galleries I should apply photo effects to?

A: Applying photo effects to your justified grid galleries will have an effect on the loading performance. Because of this, we recommend you limit your galleries to a maximum of 100 images when applying photo effects at this time, and/or make use of our Pagination Addon.
