Grid Gallery 4

Add a 'highlight' hover-effect using this Grid Gallery plugin on your Squarespace site. The image that you hover your mouse over will highlight and all the others will have a dark overlay. Below you will find a super-simple tutorial that will guide you through the installation and setup of this plugin.



Step 1: Create a Grid Gallery

Insert a Gallery Block and set it to the 'Grid' style following our recommended settings:

Aspect Ratio - 1:1 Square
Crop Images - ✔
Show Title - ✔
Thumbnails Per Row - 2
Grid Padding - 20
Open Links in New Window - ✔



Step 2: Insert the CSS

Insert the following code into your Squarespace site's Custom CSS editor or the Individual Page Header CSS injection (more info below) - the values in bold can be changed to suit your branding and site design. 

Copy & paste this code:


@media all and (min-width:770px){
  .sqs-block-gallery .sqs-gallery-design-grid img{
    -webkit-transition: all .3s ease-in-out !important;
    -moz-transition: all .3s ease-in-out !important;
    -o-transition: all .3s ease-in-out !important;
    transition: all .3s ease-in-out !important;
  .sqs-block-gallery .sqs-gallery-design-grid .slide:hover img{
    -webkit-filter: brightness(100%);
    filter: brightness(100%);
  .sqs-block-gallery .sqs-gallery-design-grid:hover img{
    -webkit-filter: brightness(30%); 
    filter: brightness(30%);
