Gallery page best practices

Here are a few quick tips for building a killer photo gallery page;

  • Use high-quality images but optimize for online use so that the image quality and image file size are optimized
  • Don’t upload photos directly from your camera or phone
  • Select fewer images so only your best is on display
  • Use the built-in Divi Gallery module for a fully functional image gallery with popups and pagination
  • Add image Alt tags (manually in the Divi image module) for SEO and to let Google know what your image is
  • Keep the gallery updated

6. Boutique Gallery Page

Divi shop gallery page

The Boutique gallery page comes with a full-width 4×4 grid of Images using Divi Image modules. Below is a shop module to display the latest products from the WooCommerce shop. Using fixed images on a WooCommerce powered online store may not be the best option as they will need to be manually replaced as products are updated. The grid gallery could be used better for images of a physical store, products being created, owners, etc. Below this is a footer with store location and opening hours.

7. Restaurant Gallery Page

The Restaurant gallery page is more of a standard gallery layout with an image gallery as the main content of the page with a simple header and footer above and below. The images are added manually using image modules rather than a Gallery module, which would offer further optional features and ease of updates. If you like the layout of this page, I would remove the images and replace them with a Gallery module. The footer has 2 floating panes for contact details and a contact form.
