Create a responsive media gallery

The Multimedia Gallery is a responsive media gallery that displays images and embedded videos on any device and provides top-notch accessibility for all users. This app allows images of any size to be uploaded. The gallery will assume the width of the container it's placed in and the height will scale proportionally for each image as the gallery transitions from one slide to another.

Images

This app resizes any size image you upload based on the width of your viewing device and the height according to scale. You can manage showing and hiding titles and captions on a per-record basis, and set up an external link while providing custom link text, link URL, and link target for each record.

Videos

Embedded videos display as a popup window on the end-user website. The video popup is triggered by your customized link set up in each record. This video link is used along with the iframe video embed code that you get from a 3rd-party provider like YouTube or Vimeo.
