Let me introduce you to Photo Block

I feel like I’ve tried just about every image and photo block out there. Some are better than others, but none quite hit the mark as far as a truly versatile and customizable image block.

This gave birth to the idea of creating an image block that is extremely simple to use, yet totally customizable. The goal is to insert the block and be ready to publish in as few as four clicks.

Here are some noteable features that will make this Photo Block worth trying out.

Dynamic Data

Use the Photo Block as part of a query loop and output exactly what you need, whether it is loading an image from custom fields, author meta, and more. Captions, alt tags, and media links can all be loaded dynamically as well.

Responsive Controls

Every aspect of the block is responsive, and can be configured per breakpoint.

The photo container can also be set, to ensure that all images fit within the same container.
