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 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. 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 Theme Options Logo area as the image, depending on the size of your screen.
