Photos and Videos

Jetpack provides everything you need to embed high-resolution photos and videos on any page without slowing down your site.

For general features and FAQs, please see our information page.

Use Jetpack to add some fun to your images. Tiled Galleries let you display multiple photos — choose from five layouts! — and Carousel makes it easy for your visitors to view individual images.

You can then insert these on your self-hosted Jetpack site in their very own video player. And if you need extra help getting those pictures to load fast, we’ve got you covered too: Jetpack’s Image CDN helps your images fly onto the screen.
