Unique Built-in Support – While rarely needed, the built-in support feature ensures easy troubleshooting when issues arise. Responsive and High-Resolution Ready – The plugin adapts to different screen sizes and supports high-res images. Horizontal Flow In horizontal flow, images are displayed in rows with uniform height adjustments to avoid cropping. This mode is particularly useful when combining portrait and landscape images within the same gallery, providing a presentation similar to Flickr’s layout.
Vertical Flow Vertical flow arranges images in evenly spaced columns without cropping. This layout works well for portrait images and cases where most images are vertical.
Classic Grid For certain scenarios, the traditional grid layout is ideal. This mode is suitable for items like logos, Dribbble shots, and more. Impressive Gallery fully supports this layout.
