How To Add Advance Photo Gallery Widget in Blogger

Advertisements
Photo galleries do add lots of colors to a website. However, Blogger doesn’t have any flexible photo gallery widget that could amuse visitors. Therefore, we have to make use of some external scripts to formulate a sparkling image gallery widget. We were not 100 percent sure that we would be able to formulate an Image Gallery widget, but thanks to the AIO Banner which made everything look pretty straightforward. Here, we have utilized the power of Jquery which has given some extraordinary transection effects to the gallery widget. Those who are searching for a widget that could hold their images together then, today we will be sharing a Photo gallery widget for Blogger enabled sites.




Why To Use Photo Gallery Widget:

Readers do get tired after reading back to back articles. They need a bit rest so why not integrate a widget that would offer some glimpse pictures, which will spread smile on everyone’s faces. On the other hand, bloggers can utilize it to add their personal snaps. For Example, a Blogger can add his snaps that he clicked during a Tech Talk, Blogger conference or blogging events. It’s just like having a small box, where a person can share his personal snaps or something related to his interest.

Where This Photo Gallery Will Appear:

It’s up to you, where you want to see this widget. However, we would recommend using it into your Sidebar, where people can easily check it whenever they like. On the other hand, a person can also attach it into his article to endorse few glimpse images. Following is the interactive screenshot of the Gallery widget. 

Some Tremendous Features of MBL Gallery Widget:

We have tried our best to furnish this widget with some of the most adoring features. Following are the few of its features.

  • Add unlimited images to the gallery no restrictions whatsoever.
  • Rotate images automatically with the help of powerful JavaScript.
  • It Has Small Thumb images through which users can select the best pictures.
  • Some splendid image transections integrated (More than 4 different Transections).

How To Install MBL Photo Gallery Plugin in Blogger:

@Sunil Dude, Its a Gallery Widget. For instance You Went to a Blogger Conference and You Gave a Speech. So in this widget you can add those images so your visitors can enjoy the glimpse. Peace

@Tech Gyrl Well There is no as such widget but we will surely introduce something which will help you to insert all such HTML without editing the Theme.
