    Hi, my gallery images are of different sizes – in particular the dimensions are different e.g. some portrait, some landscape – all are of screenshots showing different functionality. They cannot be saved out in the same aspect ratio or pixel dimension.

    As such when I add a ‘small thumbnail’ gallery to my site, the thumbnails look awful as they are all of different heights despite being the same width.

    Given that WordPress allows me to crop and set the size of a thumbnail, is there no way to force the gallery to use these thumbnails as the default thumbnails rather than creating it’s own on the fly depending on the numbers of columns that are set?

    Or is there another work around for showing ‘cropped’ thumbnails in the gallery but the full size image in Lightbox?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hey cj_envato!

    You can update Enfold to version 2.4+ and use Masonry Gallery ( for more information, please see this post http://www.kriesi.at/archives/enfold-version-2-4-fullwidth-masonry-elements )
    For a quick guide on updating your theme take a look at this video on updating the Enfold theme via FTP: https://vimeo.com/channels/aviathemes/67209750

    Hi Yigit, Fantastic. : ) Really appreciate your reply.
    Love it. Thanks.

    Couple more questions though on the full width masonry gallery:

    1) Why isn’t it possible to drag the Masonry Gallery into a ‘color section’? It seems to only drop into the full width which makes it look out of place in the rest of the site design. e.g. I’d like a heading above it which says: gallery, then to add the same left and right ‘padding’ as the rest of the site.

    Dropping the gallery into a colour section would solve this.

    2) Is it possible for you to give an example of the css element required to change the rollover white background for the title and caption?

    3) Is it not possible to adjust the width of the images? There seems to be a fixed minimum size for the thumbnails so that it will only show a maximum of 3 or 4 across the page… I’d like to have more images show in the row.

    Thanks again for all your help.

    Hi Yigit,

    With ref to the above,

    Ref my question 2) above… The CSS below works:

    figcaption.av-inner-masonry-content.site-background {
    background-color: rgba(0,0,0,0.8);

    h3.av-masonry-entry-title.entry-title {
    color: white;
    }

    Hi!

    1) Because Masonry Gallery element is a Fullwidth element. Fullwidth elements such as Fullwidth Masonry Gallery and Color Section element cannot be added in Layout Elements.
    2)Sure, please add following code to Quick CSS in Enfold theme options under Styling tab and adjust as desired

    .main_color .av-inner-masonry-content, .av-masonry-entry .avia-arrow { background-color: blue !important; }

    3)You can add and adjust following code

    .av-masonry-entry { width: 19.9%; }

    Best regards,
    Yigit

    Hi Yigit,
    Brilliant, thanks that all works.
    Might be useful to add the
    .av-masonry-entry { width: 19.9%; }
    as an option in the settings?

    Ref 1) above – would be great if you could offer a ‘Masonry Gallery’ as a non full width element.

    Thanks
    Chris
