Customize Your Masonry Gallery

There are endless ways to customize your WordPress masonry gallery to make it look perfect for your brand or company website. You can select the number of columns or leave the gallery to choose the best number for you, given the set width, the number of photos and the space required.

Below are the different settings you can customize:

  • Thumb width
  • Masonry layout (fixed, 2 – 5 columns)
  • Gutter width
  • Alignment
  • Lightbox
  • Theme (dark, light or custom)
  • Border Size (none, thin, medium, thick)
  • Rounded Corners (none, small, medium, large, full)
  • Drop Shadow (none, outline, small, medium, large)
