Creating Responsive Image Galleries in WordPress with CSS Grid

Responsive image galleries are essential for displaying images effectively across different devices. In this tutorial, we’ll use CSS Grid to create a responsive image gallery in WordPress, allowing your images to adapt beautifully to various screen sizes.

Before diving into the CSS, make sure you have your images ready. Upload them to your WordPress media library or host them externally.

Start by creating a new page or post where you want to display your image gallery. Use the WordPress editor to add a new block or shortcode for your gallery.

Within your page or post editor, switch to the HTML mode and write the HTML markup for your image gallery. Use the <figure> and <img> tags to structure your gallery. For example:

<div class="image-gallery">
        <img src="image1.jpg" alt="Image 1">
        <figcaption>Caption for Image 1</figcaption>
    <!-- Add more <figure> elements for additional images -->

Switch back to the Visual mode in your WordPress editor and navigate to the Customizer or theme’s custom CSS area. Add the following CSS code to style your image gallery using CSS Grid:

/* CSS for Responsive Image Gallery using CSS Grid */

.image-gallery {
    display: grid;
    grid-template-columns: repeat(auto-fill, minmax(250px, 1fr));
    grid-gap: 20px;

.image-gallery figure {
    margin: 0;

.image-gallery img {
    max-width: 100%;
    height: auto;
  • display: grid;: This property sets the container as a grid container, enabling CSS Grid layout.
  • grid-template-columns: repeat(auto-fill, minmax(250px, 1fr));: This property defines the columns in the grid. It uses the auto-fill function to create as many columns as possible that are at least 250 pixels wide but can expand to fill the available space (1fr).
  • grid-gap: 20px;: This property sets the gap between grid items.
  • max-width: 100%; height: auto;: These properties ensure that the images maintain their aspect ratio and scale responsively within the grid.

Preview your page or post to see your responsive image gallery in action. Adjust the CSS as needed to fine-tune the appearance and layout of your gallery.

Conclusion Congratulations! You’ve successfully created a responsive image gallery in WordPress using CSS Grid. Experiment with different CSS Grid properties and styles to customize your gallery further and enhance the visual appeal of your website.

Feel free to customize the HTML markup and CSS styles to suit your specific design preferences and requirements. Enjoy showcasing your images in a beautiful and responsive gallery on your WordPress website!
