How To Force The Divi Gallery Slider To A Fixed Height

The Divi Gallery Slider layout can be very frustrating, but I'm here to solve that and show you how to force the Divi Gallery Slider to a fixed height!

1. Add The Gallery Slider and Images

The first thing you need to do, of course, is to have a Gallery Module on your page set to slider layout. Remember, this is the Gallery Module, NOT the Slider Module.

2. Add the CSS Snippet

The next step is to simply past the snippet into your website.

If you are using our free Divi child theme, place this snippet into the style.css file. Otherwise, place this in your Divi>Theme Options>Custom CSS code box. If you need help, check out our complete guide on Where To Add Custom Code In Divi.

/*set the height of the slide image*/

.et_pb_gallery_fullwidth .et_pb_gallery_image img {
   width: auto;
   height: 600px;

/*align the slide image to the middle*/

.et_pb_gallery_image {
   line-height: 0;
   text-align: center;

/*style the slider previous and next buttons*/ {
   color: #000!important;
   background: #fff;
   margin-left: 18px!important;
   opacity: 1!important;
} {
   color: #000!important;
   background: #fff;
   margin-right: 18px!important;
   opacity: 1!important;

@media all and (min-width: 768px) {
   .et-pb-arrow-next {
      opacity: 1;
      right: 22px;
   .et-pb-arrow-prev {
      opacity: 1;
      left: 22px;

@media all and (max-width: 767px) {
   .et-pb-arrow-next {
      opacity: 1;
      right: 0;
   .et-pb-arrow-prev {
      opacity: 1;
      left: 0;

That’s all there is to it! Here’s a live example of how it will look!

This is great for desktop and fixing the vertical pictures, but when you preview the site fr mobile devices all of the landscape images are being distorted. Is there a way to do it so that doesn’t happen?


I will respond instead of Scott because I have come across the same issue. The images are distorted- stretched vertically. The width for me is not an issue (the images fit to the width of the screen) they are just very… tall.

Replace “height: 600px;” by “max-height: 600px;”
