Another Brick In The Wall

So you have a photoset of images with different formats and are wondering how to display them homogeneously on a web page. Snapshots in a family album. A photoshoot with both landscape and portrait images. A set of images that should be displayed as a navigation help. All in all, they're just more bricks in the wall. RWExtras' Wall stack, that is.

Wall is a masonry style stack without a lightbox function. Add images of any proportion to the Wall and they will be displayed in a grid, like bricks in a wall. Wall will reshuffle them until they fit perfectly on the page.



When you reduce the size of the page, the images will reshuffle until they fit the new screen size. (The screenshot above is not a perfect rendering of what is displayed in Safari, Chrome, Firefox, or Brave. I assure you that the images align perfectly in those browsers – I will admit that I've not tested any M$ browsers, but I've been assured that the display is identical) The images can be linked to new pages, or even to a lightbox such as Expose.

So here's the 'How To…'

Click the blue + button in the main Wall stack and add either a local, or a warehoused image. If you need an Image Caption – a title, or perhaps a web link – add it alongside the image. Once you've added all of your images, click the main stack to see the stack settings.

Beginning at the top, we find Brick Columns and the number of columns to be displayed on Phone; Tablet; Laptop and Desktop. Joint Spacing adjusts the spacing around each brick.

If we move on to Wall Style Settings, we find Image Padding; Brick Radius; Brick Border and Shadow Spread. I don't think we'll have any problems setting these? Again, with Border Colour; Brick Fill and Brick Shadow (colour/opacity), I don't think that any explanations are necessary?

The last and final setting. Would you like to display the Image Captions or not? There's no witchcraft required here either! Click 'preview' and check the appearance of your new Wall. After a couple of tweaks, you'll have a Wall of images just as you envisaged it! Pure HTML / CSS grid system ensure quick rendering and excellent compatibility.
