Galleries are an integral part of many websites. You can use galleries to show your visitors the latest photos, different types of products, portfolios and company informations etc..

Login to your WordPress admin dashboard and navigate to Plugins > Add New then search for ‘light box image gallery’. Find ‘Responsive Gallery With Light-box’(screenshot below) then click Install and Activate it.
After installing plugin, activate it by clicking “Activate” button. Check out the screenshot below:
Upon activating the plugin you’ll see a new “Responsive Gallery” tab on your dashboard. Check out the screenshot below:
