The Image Gallery


The Yola team is excited to announce the release of our Image Gallery. This is the first phase of a series of Image Gallery releases to come.

With the release of this new feature, end-users now have access to lightbox functionality, allowing businesses to showcase images as thumbnails that then expand to fullscreen upon click.


The Gallery utilizes the same intuitive UI that they know and love, allowing end-users to easily add, edit, duplicate, remove, and reorganize images with ease. And making adjustments to the appearance, such as adding black & white filters, or adjusting the layout is just as easy

When building out the Image Gallery, we’ve optimized for site speed. With this release, we’ve opted to store two versions of uploaded images, displaying a smaller thumbnail on the website, then utilizing the full image for the lightbox. This allows websites to load fast without hurting the quality of the image.

End-users can take advantage of this feature by simply adding a Gallery block from the block library and replacing default content with their own.The image gallery is compatible with a range of image formats including .img, .svg, .png and even .gif. Full lightbox functionality is viewable from the published website. 

Please note that the Gallery block is available for all templates using our new template structure.

Give the Image Gallery a test drive today on our mock demo site. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch via email or support ticket at any time. We look forward to hearing your feedback!
