Highlighted Grid Gallery


Step One

Insert a Gallery Block on your page, upload your images, and give each image their own title.

Step Two

From the Design style setting, adjust to your liking. Below are the suggested settings. Cropping your images to the selected aspect ratio is also recommended.

When done, save the gallery and page.


Step Three

From your Squarespace account, go to the Custom CSS Editor: Design > Advanced > Custom CSS

Step Four

Copy and paste the code below into the Custom CSS Editor box.

// Grid Gallery Highlighted //

@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%);

Step Five

To adjust the brightness of the overlay, change both of the brightness(30%) values to you liking. Going above 30% will make it brighter and going below 30% will make it darker.

Save and refresh the page. 👍
