Create your video gallery
Create your first Vimeo gallery in WordPress

To create your wordpress vimeo gallery, you first have to upload images and create an image gallery. Those images will act as video gallery thumbnails. Once that is sorted, you can quickly turn it into a video gallery.

Next, you can add a descriptive title to your gallery and start uploading your media files. I will add aerial images to my gallery.

Thanks to Modulas drag-and-drop builder, you can easily arrange media files in your galleries.

One of the best things about Modula is that it enables you to upload self-hosting videos or use them from a source like Vimeo, Youtube, etc., helping you to create fantastic video galleries.

Next, I’ll show you how to assign a Vimeo video to your image. If you hover over your image,  three icons will appear. Next, click on the Pencil icon.

Here you can add:

  • Title.
  • Alt text.
  • Caption.
  • Filters.
  • Video URL.
  • EXIF data.

An image that was unaltered and came right from the device it was taken from has its metadata built in. The metadata would be automatically detected and filled in if the same original image you took was uploaded on the website.

Add the link to your Vimeo video in the Video URL box to create a WordPress Vimeo gallery.

Click on Save, and if you want to assign videos to multiple images, follow the same process.

There’s more. Go to the Settings section and look for Video. Here you can take advantage of more customization options for your Vimeo gallery.

You may or may not know, but Modula provides four gallery types: creative, customslider, and masonry

For our Vimeo gallery, I will use the custom grids to resize my images controlling their heights, widths, and aspect ratio.
