You can add and customize your Before Image in this section.

‘Before Image’ Section in the Content Tab of the Image Comparison Widget

Here, you get options to customize the Before Image’s title and add an image by inserting media from the media library.

Also, you can select the image size from the comprehensive image size options available here. We recommend you keep the image size full.

After Image

You can add and customize your After Image in this section.

‘After Image’ Section in the Content Tab of the Image Comparison Widget

In this section, you get similar options as that of the before image section. Here also, you can customize the After Image’s title and add an image by inserting media from the media library.

Also, you can select the “image size” from the comprehensive image size options available here.

This Tab includes four sections:

  4. Label

All the styling options for the handle placed in the separator are available in this section.

Let’s see the options available in this section in detail:

  • Icon color: With this option, you can change the color of the handle icon placed in the middle of the separator.
  • Background Color: Customize the background color for the handle using this option.
  • Border Type: You can choose the border type for the handle from the options available here, such as solid, dotted, dashed, doubled, and groove. You can select “none” if you don’t want to display any border.
  • Border Radius: If you’ve applied a border, you can use this border-radius option to give a smooth edge to the border applied.
  • Box Shadow: Customize the box shadow for the handle using this option.
Divider
‘Divider Section’ in the Style tab of the Image Comparison Widget

In this section, you’ll get options to customize the separator or divider. You can change its “color” and adjust its “width” by using the options available here.

Label
‘Label Section’ in the Style tab of the Image Comparison Widget

In this section, you’ll get a wide range of options to customize the label displayed in the before & after slider.

Let’s see all the options available in this section:

  • Position: Set the label box position to the top, middle, or bottom.
  • Align: Set the alignment of the before/after label displayed on both the images to the left, right, or center.
  • Text Color: Select the label text color using this option.

  • Border Type: If you want to apply a border, you can select any border type from the options available such as solid, double, dotted, dashed, or groove.
  • Border Radius: You can adjust the border radius for the label text, and using a border radius will give soft edges to the label text.
