Image Photo Gallery Final Tiles Grid

Description

Image Gallery + Photo Gallery + Portfolio Gallery + Tiled Gallery in 1 plugin. Includes lightbox and hover effects. It supports Pinterest (masonry) photo gallery and tiled grid gallery.

A Brand New Algorithm

There are dozens of wordpress photo galleries out there, but the problem is that they always look the same!
Final Tiles Grid Gallery uses a brand new algorithm to make much more interesting image grids, how does it work?
The main concept is very simple: it doesn’t crop the images and it keeps the original size (if possible).

This is a completely new way to build photo galleries because now you can think of the images like they were tiles with different sizes, so you can use a bigger size for a cover image, for example.

The image photo gallery is fully responsive and it adapts to the browser using a nice and smooth animation, even on mobile devices because it can use the hardware acceleration taking advantage of CSS3 properties.

This gallery plugin is perfect for you if you need:

  • wedding album photo gallery
  • designer portfolio photo gallery
  • photography portfolio photo gallery
  • products showcase photo gallery

Features

  • responsive
  • 2 available layouts: Tiles and Columns (masonry)
  • adjust margin between images
  • adjust image rendered size based on current screen size
  • sort images manually or randomly
  • 1 lightbox + support for EverlightBox
  • social sharing
  • video gallery

PRO version features

Final Tiles Gallery Lite is a very complete plugin but if you want the best experience consider buying a PRO license. The PRO version has all features of Lite version plus:

  • filters / categories
  • 7 lightbox + support for EverlightBox
  • different lightbox for mobile devices
  • caption hover effects
  • image hover effects
  • image loaded effects
  • WooCommerce support
  • recent posts / custom posts galleries

If you love the Lite version and it’s enough for your needs but you want to say “thanks!” you can always buy a present 😉

If you instead want to upgrade and unlock all the cool features then you can buy a license.

The “Final” layout can’t ensure you have a justified edge at the bottom of the gallery. If you have this requirement then you can use the “Masonry” layout and use images with same height, that way you can make a justified gallery.

The layout doesnt’ look correct

Check the console of the browser and look if you see any error like: Uncaught TypeError: undefined is not a function jquery.finalTilesGalleryLite.js
This errors means that the browser doesn’t know the finalTilesGalleryLite JavaScript plugin, most of the time the problem is caused by a wrong jQuery
inclusion by the theme or another plugin.

Why the images arrange themselves in columns ?

Columns happen when the bottom edges of the images are not aligned. To avoid this tedious layout you can raise the “Grid size” setting. This will crop a few pixels but it raises the chances to avoid columns.

How to get beautiful grids ?

Have a look at this video tutorial

Why does some image look blurry ?

Under some circumstances the images have to be enlarged a bit to avoid gaps. To avoid a blurry effect you can decrease the “Image size factor” setting.

I want to use another lightbox instead of the provided one

The PRO license bundles 7 different lightboxes. However you can use any other lightbox you want also with the Lite license. If you have installed a lightbox plugin then you just need to select “Direct link to image” in the “Lightbox” settings.

Can I import galleries from other plugins?

Currently galleries made with Envira, FooGallery, Instagram, NextGen, JetPack, Modula, etc cannot be imported.

How can I get support?
  • Get priority support with a PRO license: http://www.final-tiles-gallery.com/wordpress/pro.html
How can I say thanks?

Reviews

The best masonry gallery I could find

Ok, I’ve been searching for a very long time for a good masonry gallery.
I’ve been trying so many of them, It takes so much time.
Basically I tried every plugin that appear when you search for ‘masonry’ and they always had something wrong.
Gallery Final Tiles Grid doesn’t show when you search for masonry, but it has the option, and the alternative mode ‘final tiles’ have a very similar principle.
So:
-GFTG integrates very well with Siteorigin PageBuilder
-you can make grids that cover the whole width of your page
-It mixes pictures with different size in a very natural way.
-You don’t have to adjust manually every picture
-it works with animated GIF
-it has clean and classy hover option that let you show titles, captions or the text you want.
-the menus are clean, understandable and they have tones of options to adjust your grids.

a few negative points:
-one bug (I guess it’s a conflict with another plugin..): when the gallery is charging, for some pictures, the hover doesn’t work, or shows the wrong info. When clicking to open the picture in LightBox the wrong picture appears…
-the ‘Final Tiles’ mode tends to create grids with 3 columns: first with only small pictures, second with only medium pictures and the third with only big pictures.
-I wish there was an easy way to update the titles and captions when you did modify them in the library.
-I wish there was way to physically randomize the grid in the ‘images’ menu because it’s quite tedious to do by hand.
-for the same reason it would be nice to have an extra option in the ‘List view’ with only a list of the titles of the pictures. To reorder them faster.

To sum up: a pretty good plugin
