With Carousel active, any standard WordPress galleries you have embedded in posts or pages will launch a gorgeous full-screen photo browsing experience with comments and EXIF metadata.

Carousel Options

You can set a black or white background for Carousel:

carousel-black-screenshot carousel-white-screenshot

You can also choose to display the photo metadata (Exif) in the Carousel, if it’s available.


Once you activate the Carousel module, you will find the settings in your Dashboard under Settings -> Media.


Background color: Choose whether or not you want a black or white background for your Carousel as shown above.

Metadata: Check this option if you want your photo’s EXIF metadata to be displayed.

Tiled Galleries: Check this option if you want to have all of your Galleries to display in a cool mosaic. You can find out more about the Tiled Galleries feature here.

Questions & Answers

  • Can I display videos in a Carousel?
    Carousel is only for displaying images from a standard WordPress gallery. It will not display videos.
  • Carousel is active but is not launching for my galleries. What’s up?
    Please verify if your theme has some custom gallery functionalities. The Carousel will deactivate if it detects that the theme in use is overwriting the gallery shortcode, so as to not conflict with the theme.
  • Can developers extend the Carousel?
    Theme and plugin authors have filters and actions they can hook into to force activate, customize and extend the Carousel if they wish, such as jp_carousel_force_enable, jp_carousel_enqueue_assets, etc.
