Modula – Your Go-To Plugin To Create Stunning Image Galleries

There are many free and paid image gallery plugins out there. The important question, though, is whether or not it truly displays the best version of your creative work. Most of them have huge limitations. Not Modula, though!

Why is Modula the solution to your problems? Because it’s highly customizable, mobile-responsive, and easy to use even if you don’t have experience working with WordPress plugins. Modula lets you easily style both image AND video galleries.

Modula is the go-to plugin that lets designers, artists, and other creatives display video and image galleries highlighting their best work. Even the Lite version has many valuable features. Editing the style and appearance of image galleries, WordPress gallery migration, setting up captions, lazy loading, lightboxes, loading and hover effects are all useful options.

You can upgrade to the premium version anytime to unlock even more customization options. You can take advantage of image optimization, right-click and password protection, watermarking, video galleries, even more loading effects, and many other options.

Modula easily lets you migrate previously-created galleries in less than 3 minutes AND for free! Still, keep in mind that the WordPress-core gallery migrator is not compatible with Gutenberg galleries. 

WordPress core galleries, although nice to have and better than nothing, you can do very little in terms of customization unless you’re a developer. With WP Core, you may select the images, organize them, decide how many columns to use, add captions, and not a lot else.

On the other hand, Modula lets you resize images, play around with the spacing, randomize images in the gallery, select how many to display at first glance, caption settings, and many more options making Modula the perfect image gallery plugin.

Once that is selected, more options will pop up. Here you will have the chance to tick the Delete old gallery entries box if you want to delete remnants or data entries in the database from the migrated galleries.

Next, you will see a list of all of your old galleries. In this example, we created one gallery; therefore, only one will appear here. Suppose you want to select only specific ones. In that case, you can go ahead and tick the boxes or click on the select all option if you want to migrate multiple galleries simultaneously.

The last step is to click the Migrate button and watch the magic happen.
