The first thing we need to do is define whether we are creating a Filterable Gallery or a Standard Gallery. Standard Gallery is a simple presentation of images which is the most commonly used format. Filterable Gallery in Elementor allows you to group images in different categories and create tabbed filters.

For example, a photographer can create groups for different photos, such as Landscape, Portrait, Products, etc. Using filters, it becomes easy for website visitors to browse the photos.

Once you have set the Gallery type, the next step is to add images. If you use a standard gallery, you can upload the images directly.

If you are creating a Filterable Gallery then you will need to upload the images in different groups. You can add a Label/Name to each image group, which will work as a “Filter” for the Gallery.

After adding the images, you can set a layout for the gallery in Elementor. With these options, you can create a Grid Layout or a Masonry Gallery in Elementor.

The layout settings also provide options for changing the number of columns, ordering sequence, displaying caption, linking the image to an external URL or the original file, enabling/disabling Lightbox, etc.
