Do you want to create beautiful, responsive photo and video galleries on your WordPress website? Creating a perfectly customized WordPress photo gallery or video gallery takes just a few seconds with the Envira Gallery plugin.
Designed with users in mind, Envira Gallery uses a simple, drag and drop interface that allows you to build and customize your image galleries for WordPress pages and posts from professional templates. You can also use the plugin to create standalone galleries that aren’t tied to pages or posts, and display your images in slideshows and Lightbox mode.
Ready to learn more about how to use the Envira Gallery plugin? In this article, we’ll cover:
The first step to getting started with Envira Gallery is downloading the plugin. You can find the Envira plugin from the Envira Gallery website.
Envira Gallery subscriptions come in four tiers, all of which are protected by a 14-day money-back guarantee. If you aren’t happy with Envira Gallery’s performance during your first two weeks of using the plugin, we’ll happily return your money!
Choose from between these tiers:
Once you choose a pricing tier that fits your needs, you can download the plugin from the Envira Gallery website. To install the Envira plugin on your WordPress website, you’ll now need to either upload the plugin file to WordPress or upload the plugin file to your server.
For more information on installing Envira Gallery on your WordPress website, please read our installation documentation.
Now, when Envira Gallery is ready to update, you’ll be able to update the plugin directly from your WordPress Admin dashboard.
Remember to make sure that any other plugins you’ve already installed, like image compression tools, are compatible with the Envira plugin. You don’t want incompatible plugins to break your site.
With Envira Gallery equipped to your WordPress website, you’re ready to build your first gallery. Thanks to Envira Gallery’s drag and drop builder, creating the gallery of your dreams won’t take more than a few minutes.
Plus, each gallery you create is responsive, so you don’t have to worry about your gallery’s format breaking on tablet and mobile devices.
The first step in creating an Envira Gallery is to log in to your WordPress dashboard and locate the plugin in the left-hand menu. Hover over the plugin, then select Add New in the pop-out menu.
Now, give your gallery a unique title and import your photos from your WordPress Media Library, computer or from another supported source.
Then, configure your gallery settings to adhere to your brand identity, and click Publish when you’re done. Now you’ve got an Envira gallery that you can put on your pages and posts using the WordPress Gutenberg editor or Envira Gallery shortcode!

Envira plugin’s base features are plenty advanced to help you create a customized image or video gallery. But, sometimes you need specialized help to get your gallery where you want it to be. That’s where Envira’s slew of plugin addons comes in handy.
Our addons are designed to give you even more control over your gallery’s functionality and design. They include:
Experiment with these addons when building your first gallery to find the ones that are most useful to you.
Simply download Envira Addons from the Add-Ons tab under the plugin on your WordPress Admin dashboard. The addons available with your current Envira license will appear on that addons page.
Once you’ve installed an add-on, you can use it with any image gallery you’ve already created, or apply it to a new one.
