Xpand Image Gallery


Looking for the greatest gallery for wordpress?

Inspired by Google´s image gallery we have created a gallery for WordPress that replaces the standard with one that gives you the ability to open images inside the content without the need to load a new page or use a modal box. This improves user experience and brings dynamism, speed and usability to your site.


  • Seamless visualization: You can enlarge you images on the same page the user is navigating.
  • Responsive design: Mobile devices and desktop devices are fully supported!
  • Customize it to suit your needs: options panel in the WordPress backend makes it easy to fit and integrate with your design!
  • Navigation with keyboard arrows
  • Images preload using Ajax
  • Set visualization height
  • Set animation speed

Want the Xpand Gallery Pro?

Aside from the lite version options you can have advanced features such as:

  • Widget ready: The plugin adds a useful widget area, where you can place any content you want.
  • Support for multiple galleries on the same page.
  • Many styling and functionality options to customize the plugin to your needs.
  • You can see it in action here
