Double Image for Gutenberg


Double Image is designed for the Gutenberg editor. This custom block design allows you to display two images side by side or stacked.

Images can be either selected via the media library or simply drag and drop an image to either drop zones.

Apply an overlay with or without a background color and adjust the opacity of the background.

Text can be added on either image at the top or bottom.
