How to make a Photo Row

What is Photo Row?


Photo Row is a new type of image subBuzz that lets you put two or three images or gifs side by side in a post. Here are some examples.

1. When you have an image subBuzz, you can add a second or a third image to create a photo row by clicking this “Add image” icon.

You can add up to three images or gifs to the photo row.

2. Select the appropriate row height and layout

When you add the images, the Photo Row will default to the options that it thinks best suits your images. If you’d like to change the row height or layout, open the dropdown and select something different.

3. Hover over an image to delete, zoom and add caption and source info.

4. Reposition images

If the image is larger than the cell, you can reposition it by dragging. Side note: If anyone knows how to make my gif not have that weird blown-out pink/yellow bright spot on the cat photo, please let me know. I’m bad at Gif Brewery.

5. Replace images

To replace an image, either delete it and upload a different one, or drag an image from your desktop over the image you want to get rid of. The replace icon will appear to indicate that the image you’re dragging will replace the existing image when you let go of the mouse.

6. Swap image order.

If you want to swap the position of images in the photo row, click and hold until the image you want to move shrinks down to a thumbnail size. When you drag the small thumbnail over a different cell of the Photo Row, the “switch” icon will appear on the target position. Let go and the photos will swap places.

7. Save your Photo Row

Ready to rock!

The future of Photo Row


- We’re changing how credits looks so they look like credits on the rest of the site.
- We’re adding a way to add photos from Wire Search.
- We’re thinking about a more seamless way to transition from a single image into a Photo Row.

Let me know if you have any other ideas or feedback!
