If you do not like the look of your final product, go back and edit the collage. You change the layout of your collage and also tinker with the grid options to get what you want.

I skipped discussing the grid settings earlier as it would not have made sense then. I hope it can be more evident now.

  1. Grid width – Magnifies the whole image collage.
  2. Grid ration – Shrinks the image collage
  3. Border width – Slide to the left for a borderless picture and further to the right to increase the borders between the images. If you are using a border, you can also set the color of your borders.

The grid alignment positions the image collage on the page depending on your settings. This can be centered, which is the default, or positioned to the right or left.

There are other several settings you could make, but, most of these are only available for the premium version of the plugin users.

Create many posts with the same setting for image collages

If you are creating many posts or pages with the same settings for your image collage, then define all these settings in the settings page, when you now build your posts or pages, you will not need to make modifications on each post you create.

To access the settings page, Navigate to Easy Image Collage, under settings on your left menu.

Set your default settings here; you can define the grid alignment, grid width, Grid Ratio, Border width, and border color.

This ideally is the same settings as the ones on your post or page collage edit screen.

Next, you can add a Lightbox. This creates a clickable image that opens the image in a popup form.

Under social media, you can add a Pinterest button that is when your visitors hover over the image.
