How can I change some gallery look?

Here is a gallery shortcode sample with the full set of parameters:
[gallery id=”10″ width=”500″ height=”400″ link=”file” size=”medium” thumbnail_height=”80″ order=”ASC” orderby=”ID” exclude=”11,12″ featured=”exclude”]

Parameters description:

  • id: integer, the ID of a post the images attached to. Default: current post ID.
  • width: width in pixels (px) of the DIV block that contains the gallery, overflow hidden. Empty by default, then the gallery takes 100% of available width.
  • height: height in pixels of the DIV block that contains first image of a gallery. Empty by default. If your gallery includes both portrait and landscape images or different width/height rate the page height may change when you click thumbnails, and you can avoid this inconvenience by setting this parameter for the specific gallery instance.
  • link: ‘file’ or ‘none’, default ‘file’ – is the main image clickable or not.
  • size: ‘medium’, ‘large’ or ‘file’ – the size of a main image, default ‘medium’.
  • thumbnail_height: to make thumbnails row looks pretty (it is not real size of your thumbnails), default 60 (pixels).
  • order, orderby, exclude – the same as in standard wordpress gallery.
  • featured: ‘include’ (default) or ‘exclude’ – is the featured image of a post displayed in a gallery or not.
