Now, we are going to do some editing for our gallery. Start with selecting the grid type. You have four options to choose from creative, custom, slider, and masonry. I will go with masonry or columns type. At the same time, once you select the gallery type, there are many customization options you can benefit from.

I chose to go with columns gallery type, and now there are few features specific to this gallery type. If we take a closer look, we can see that there is the option to edit the column type, row height, or image size.

Once we are done with editing our columns, let’s move on and edit our gallery by enabling protection and deeplinking. By enabling protection, you protect your gallery images and disable right-click and Alt + Click for downloading images. Deeplinking is helping you to create a unique and indexable URL for each of your Modula galleries. You can use that to help you with SEO. You find all these features in the Misc section.

When we are all done with styling our newest gallery, click on the Save Gallery button.

After editing and saving our gallery, do not forget that to manage multiple WordPress galleries, you need to create at least two galleries.
