Overview

How To Use The Image Element

The Image Element can be used anywhere in your content. This element has numerous options, as well as a few global options. This element also features a Lightbox option where you can display a single or multiple image elements, and with Avada 7, it can be used to add a site logo to a Header Layout, using the Dynamic options in the Element.

How To Insert An Image Element

Step 1. Ensure Avada Builder, or Avada Live is active.

Step 2. Create, or choose the Column you wish to add the Element into. Click on Add New Element.

Step 3. Choose Image from the Elements List.

Step 4. Click the ‘+ Element’ button to bring up the Elements window. Locate the Image Element and click it to add it to the page. Alternatively, just search for ‘Image’ and the Image Elements will be filtered for your selection.

How To Use ‘Gallery ID’ Option

Creating A Gallery With Image Elements

The ‘Gallery ID’ option allows you to combine any number of Image Elements on the page to display in the same lightbox gallery. Continue reading below to learn how to use this option.

Step 1. Add an Image Element in the usual manner.

Step 2. Set the ‘Image Lightbox’ option to Yes. If you’d like to set a different lightbox image, assign one using the ‘Lightbox Image’ option.

Step 3. Locate the ‘Gallery ID’ option and insert a unique name for the lightbox gallery that this image frame will belong to. For example, Products.

Step 4. Repeat steps 1 – 3 for all the Image elements you’d like to include in the lightbox gallery.

You can also use the Image Element to add a Logo to a Header Layout. To do this, you can simply insert an image as normal, or you can use the Dynamic Content option in the Image field. Under Site, there is a Logo option, and when you select this, you can choose a Logo Type (see below). You can select any of the three logo types (Default, Sticky and Mobile) in both Normal or Retina, or you can select the All option. This pulls the most appropriate logo from the Global Options Logo area as the image, depending on the size of your screen. NB. Just be aware, this method loads more content than adding a single image, and so likely affects page scores more than the simple method of adding a single image for the logo.
