Wix Pro Gallery: Creating Sub-Galleries

5 min read
If you have a lot of images or videos to display on your site, you can organize your media into sub-galleries and display each gallery on a different page or even in a lightbox. 
You can create a 'main gallery' that serves as a gateway to your sub-galleries. The main gallery contains cover images. Each cover image is clickable and links to the corresponding sub-gallery.

Add a new Pro Gallery to a new page or lightbox and upload the media you want it to display. This gallery will become your sub-gallery. You can create as many pages or lightboxes as you need to display all your sub-galleries.
