Make use of the Photo gallery module to display all your photos in a grid or masonry layout
Filterable by category options included
Overlay animations and thumbnail gallery
I like UABB included the filtering option here instead of a separate module but the PowerPack version has several more overlay style and animation options, plus in the lightbox, you have a thumbnail gallery to the side.
If you have any feedback or simply want to ask a question please don’t hesitate to reach out!
