Image Compare Block

The Image Compare block allows you to display and compare the differences between two images side by side (or above and below) thanks to a slider.


How to add the Image Compare Block

Here is an example:


The Image Compare block is available on all Jetpack connected sites.

Adding the Image Compare block

You can add the Image Compare block by searching and/or selecting it from the Jetpack section of the block selector:

You can also find it by typing /image in the block selector:

See Jetpack Blocks for detailed instructions on adding blocks.

The block works best with two images of the same width and height.

After adding the block, you can then add images to your gallery in the same way that you can add images to a regular image block. You can upload them from your computer, select them from your Media Library, or select them from an external source such as Google Photos or Pexels Free Photos. Once you’ve added images, you can use the block toolbar and the sidebar to add your customizations.

You can then also add a caption to the block after uploading your images.

Note: If you upload the wrong images, or wish to change the order, you will need to delete the block and start over.

Block Settings

Every block has specific options in the editor sidebar in addition to the options found in the block toolbar. If you do not see the sidebar, click the ‘cog’ icon next to the Publish button.


Orientation Settings

Using the orientation settings, you can switch the orientation from side by side to above and below:


The advanced tab lets you add a CSS class to your block, allowing you to write custom CSS and style the block as you see fit.
