Add a beautiful WordPress lightbox gallery to let your visitors immerse themselves in your photography.

Easily display photos on your website in a lightbox gallery when they’re clicked.

There are six built-in lightbox styles available each of which come with varying designs but can also include keyboard navigation, touchscreen compatibility for mobile devices, social media sharing options, and the ability to allow your website’s visitors to download your images.

No limitations – set your own gallery layout

Regardless of the lightbox style you choose, you can always switch a gallery from creative gallery to custom grid which will allow you to set the size of each individual image in your gallery.

And still choose from 12 hover effects and add captions

After adding your lightbox gallery to your WordPress website, you can still further customize it using the choice of 12 built-in hover effects along with the ability to add custom image titles and descriptions to match your image.

First, you’ll need to either create a new gallery or edit an existing one. You should find creating your first gallery using Modula really easy, but if you run into some issues here’s a brief explanation that should clear things up for you. 

  1. To create a new gallery, head to Modula > and click “Add New”.
  2. This will automatically take you to the gallery edit screen so you can start working on your gallery right away.

Next, upload your chosen images to your Modula gallery.

Time to add those images to your gallery

To do this, click Upload Image Files, Select from Library or simply drag your images into the gallery edit area to upload and insert your images into your gallery.

The final step is to Publish your gallery for the world to see so you can copy & paste the shortcode into any post or page where you want it to appear.
