How to Tag The Gallery Widget for Figma to Elementor?

Table of Contents

Are you using an image grid in your Figma design to showcase a portfolio or something similar, then you can tag those elements as an Elementor Gallery widget directly from your Figma design using the UiChemy plugin.

So when you export the design as an Elementor template, that particular section will use the Elementor Gallery widget.

What Can be Tagged?

A frame containing multiple images can be tagged as a Gallery widget.

How to Tag?

Select the top level frame of your layout then select the Optimize & Convert option and click the Optimize & Convert button.

Now select the frame or container containing the gallery in your design and click on the Widget Tags tab in the UiChemy panel.

Then search for gallery and click on the Gallery widget from Elementor Pro.

Note: You need to have a UiChemy Pro license to tag Elementor Pro widgets.

On the next screen, you’ll get the information of which element you are tagging as what widget.

Then you’ll see widget specific tagging options.

  1. In the Image 1 dropdown, you have to select the first image of the gallery.
  2. Then click on the Add New button and repeat step 1 to tag the next images.
  3. From the Columns field, you have to select the number of columns in your image gallery.
  4. Once done, click on the Save button to complete the tagging.

Note: You can only add image fields up to the same number of images added in your design. If you add any extra image fields, it will be removed automatically once you save the changes, but if you add less number of fields, only those will be exported, not all the images of the layout.

Now if you export the design, that element will use the Elementor Gallery widget with your selected images.

Note: Since this is a pro widget make sure the Elementor pro plugin is installed and activated. You might have to make some minor adjustments in the widget settings to match the design, especially those elements that are not tagged.
