Attention photographers and visual storytellers! Are you ready to take your website galleries to a whole new level of engagement and interactivity? We’ve got some exciting news for you.

We’ve just released a game-changing new addon that will make your images come alive like never before: Gallery Animations!

In today’s digital landscape, grabbing and keeping your visitors’ attention is more challenging than ever. With so much visual content competing to be seen, how can you make your galleries stand out and encourage users to explore your work?

That’s where Envira Gallery’s new Animations Addon comes in. By adding eye-catching movement and dynamic effects to your images, you can:

  • Immediately draw visitors’ focus to your standout photos.
  • Encourage users to interact with and explore your galleries.
  • Leave a lasting impression and strengthen your unique brand style.
  • Boost engagement and keep users on your site longer.

Envira Gallery has long been the go-to gallery plugin for WordPress, and the addition of animations provides even more functionality and creative potential. So, let’s take a closer look at this exciting new feature.

Unleash Your Creativity with 50+ Animation Styles

The Animations Addon offers an incredible selection of over 50 animation styles to choose from. So whether you prefer a subtle, elegant effect or bold, attention-grabbing movement, you’ll find an option that perfectly fits your vision and brand.

The animation styles are broken down into core categories, each with multiple variations that allow you to fine-tune the effect. Customize the direction, axis, and entry point of your animated images to create a truly unique gallery experience.

Here’s a taste of the core animation styles available:

  • Fade & Slide: Photos gracefully fade or slide into view from the direction you choose.
  • Bounce & Shake: Playful, energetic animations that make your images pop.
  • Flip & Zoom: Dramatic, perspective-bending effects to add a sense of depth and intrigue.
  • Roll & Rotate: Smooth, fluid animations that guide the viewer’s eye through your gallery
  • Heartbeat & Jello: Fun, unexpected animations that show off your brand’s personality

For even more control over how your animations behave, Envira Gallery lets you adjust duration and delay. Set a longer duration for a relaxed, fluid effect, or speed things up for a snappier, attention-grabbing animation.

Animations + Pagination = Unstoppable Engagement

If you have a larger gallery broken up into multiple pages, you know how challenging it can be to encourage visitors to keep clicking through to the end. That’s where Envira Gallery’s clever combination of animations and pagination comes in.

You can set unique animations to trigger whenever a user clicks to a new page within your gallery. This strategic use of animations is a smart way to hook visitors and keep them exploring your full gallery.

You could have one dramatic animation to initially grab their attention, followed by a subtler transition effect as they continue browsing.
