Bricks and Mortar

Masonry 2 from seyDesign, Review By Rob Hall, CEO at rjh Web Design Rating: 5 out of 5. Masonry is one of the best gallery stacks available!

When recently rebuilding a website with Foundation, I added seyDesign's Masonry to the gallery page. It had been on the old page and the customer liked it. Imagine my surprise when I found that all the images overlapped and the captions were missing from all but the bottom row of images.

Masonry is probably my favourite gallery stack and I've used it on many sites. Drop images onto the page – any size, portrait or landscape format and Masonry shuffles them around so that they fit perfectly on the page. Like bricks in a wall.

I don't know if Will read the bug report that I submitted to seyDesign, but today he sent me a copy of Masonry 2.

Instead of two stacks – the wall, so to speak, and the bricks – Masonry 2 is now a single stack that makes complete use of the Stacks 3 interface. Drop the stack onto your page and set the number of columns to be displayed on each specific device. The HUD has been completely redesigned to include extensive settings for the appearance of the bricks. The (optional) caption alignment and styling options have also been been completely redesigned. All colour pickers now support opacity.

Once you've set your display options, click the button in the stack to add a brick with either a local or a warehoused image. The window that then opens has image wells for a thumbnail and the lightbox image.

The lightbox has also been completely overhauled. It is fully responsive and supports Retina displays.

The update is free for existing customers. However, as the stack has been completely rebuilt, it will not show up as an update. The update can be obtained from your Paddle Locker or by contacting seyDesign and forwarding a copy of your purchase receipt.

Masonry 2 can be installed alongside Masonry 1, giving you the opportunity to manually migrate old galleries over to this newer version.

I shan't be updating this specific customer's gallery page, but I shall be using Masonry regularly in the future.
