Websites + Marketing Help

Add or change my website's photo gallery

In addition to adding single photos to your website, you also can create a gallery of up to 250 images. After choosing a layout, set whether the display of gallery images changes automatically or is manually controlled by viewers.

This video is part of the How-To series for Advanced Design and Media in Website Builder.

  1. Go to your GoDaddy product page.
  2. Scroll down, expand Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to your website.
  3. Select Edit Website or Edit Site.
  4. Go to the page and location where you want to add a photo gallery, and add a section.
  5. Select Image Gallery, and then Photo Gallery.
  6. Next to the gallery layout you want to use, select Add. You can always change the layout later.
  7. In the right panel, customize your options. Different layouts have different options.
    • Layout: Select a different layout for the gallery.
    • Accent: Choose your theme color, white or black as the color for your section.
    • Title: Enter a title, which will appear across the top of your gallery photos, or leave it blank. Here you can also use artificial intelligence (AI) to help you write a punchy title.

      Disclaimer: When using AI tools, avoid entering sensitive information and always review output for accuracy.

    • Full Width: When this toggle is switched on, the gallery is inset in the page or spans from edge to edge on the screen.
    • Show Thumbnails: When this toggle is switched on, thumbnails show beneath the image, which helps visitors to your site see which pictures are coming up, and they can click on a specific photo to jump to it.
    • Show Arrows: When this toggle is switched on, arrows are displayed, allowing site visitors to click left and right through your gallery.
    • Autoplay: When this toggle is switched on, the gallery automatically moves to the next image and pauses at intervals set by the Autoplay Timer (in seconds).
    • Gallery Images: Use the + to add more images, or select an image to modify, describe or remove it. Drag and drop the images within the Gallery Images area to change the order in which they are displayed.
    Note: Images can't have links, but you can add a description and link the description text.
  8. Your changes are saved automatically. Use Preview to see the results, and when you're ready to make the changes public, publish your site.
