In this article, we will show you how to easily create a WooCommerce product image gallery (step by step).

How to create a WooCommerce product image gallery

Why Should You Create WooCommerce Product Galleries?

WooCommerce is the most popular WordPress eCommerce plugin on the market. It allows you to sell products by creating an online store.

Most WordPress themes for WooCommerce come with default templates for shop and shop category pages. These pages simply list your products using the theme’s style.

What if you wanted to create a product gallery and display it inside a blog post or another page on your site? By displaying your products in your popular blog posts and pages, you can increase your sales and conversions.

Let’s take a look at how to easily create WooCommerce product image galleries. We’ll share two different methods, and you can use the quick links below to jump to the option that suits you:

Method 1: Creating WooCommerce Product Galleries with SeedProd (Recommended)

The best way to make a WooCommerce product image gallery is by using SeedProd. It’s the best drag and drop WordPress page builder on the market.

SeedProd lets you easily create custom WordPress themes and landing pages, with no coding required. Plus, it comes with built-in WooCommerce blocks and integration that make it easy to add product image galleries to any page or post in WordPress.

To get started, you need to install and activate the SeedProd plugin. If you need help, you can follow this guide on how to install a WordPress plugin.

Note: There is a free version of SeedProd that you can try out, but you need SeedProd’s Elite plan to access WooCommerce blocks.

Once the plugin is activated, go to SeedProd » Settings from your WordPress dashboard and enter your license key.

Entering the SeedProd license key

You can find your license key in your account on the SeedProd website. After entering your license key, click the ‘Verify key’ button to continue.

Choosing a WooCommerce Template Kit

Next, you need to choose a WooCommerce template kit to use for your online store. This will replace your existing WordPress theme with a new, custom design.

Simply go to SeedProd » Theme Builder and then click the ‘Theme Template Kits’ button.

Installing a WooCommerce template kit using SeedProd

This will take you to SeedProd’s website kit library.

From here, you can click on the ‘WooCommerce’ tab to see all of the template kits created specifically for online stores.

Choose a WooCommerce theme kit

You can hover over any template kit and click on the magnifying glass to preview the design. When you find a template kit you like, simply click the checkmark to use it.

For this tutorial, we’ll be using the WooCommerce Starter Theme, but you can use any template kit you want.

Once you’ve selected a template kit, SeedProd will import it, and you’ll be able to see a list of all the template parts on the theme dashboard.

SeedProd will import all template parts of the theme

You can customize each part of the template, including product pages, shop page, checkout page, and more, with SeedProd’s easy drag-and-drop builder. This is how we’ll add a WooCommerce product image gallery.

First, find the template part you want to customize. For this tutorial, we’ll choose the ‘Single Post’ part. This is the template that determines how all of your individual blog posts look.

Simply hover over it and click on the ‘Edit Design’ link.

Click Edit design link to customize

This will open up SeedProd’s visual page builder.

From here, you can drag and drop ready-made blocks onto your page, click on any element to customize it, and see a preview of how your design looks in real time.

    I’m really excited about this article! You’ve described very well how to easily create image galleries in WooCommerce, which is perfect for someone like me who is still learning about running an online store. Fortunately, I’m not alone in this journey :). Using Optin Monster for a CTA at the end of the article is a brilliant idea, especially since we use Optin Monster (as well as Seed Prod for landing pages) not only on WooCommerce but also on our blog and company website. It has expanded my knowledge about e-commerce on the Woo platform once again.
