Applying image animation

Image animation is there to bring a lively effect to the images. You’ll find 6 image animations in total. Choose the one that matches the best or leave it blank if you don’t want any animation to that particular image. Plus, if you want a pop up of the image on click, you can enable the “Open Image In Lightbox” option.

We have an addon to display images on a website using SP Page Builder. We have another addon to show text content along with images. But we were missing an addon like this one where you can apply a plethora of effects to any image. The Image Overlay addon is a great addition to the SP Page Builder addon library. We anticipate that you will definitely love it. If you have any suggestion regarding this or for a new addon please don’t forget to share with us. And keep loving JoomShaper like you do 🙂
