The more engaging an experience you can give your visitors, the longer they remain engaged with your Flipbook. The Popup Media Gallery feature allows you to surface images and videos, in a CTA-activated modal, without having to directly embed it in-line in your Flipbook.
Popup Media Gallery gives you the power to surface single assets, or create curated asset galleries that include both images and videos, including from external sources—everything you need to create the rich experiences your Flipbook deserves!

Let’s get started!
How to insert a Popup Media Gallery enrichment into your Flipbook
Start by highlighting an area, in your Flipbook, or inserting text, an image, or video that will serve as the CTA for your Popup Media Gallery.
Once positioned correctly, from the Select an enrichment action dropdown menu on the right, select Popup Media Gallery.
Your Popup Media Gallery is now ready to be set up and customized. You can do this in two ways:
Selective: Choose and sort a list of media options, such as Media Library files, images/video URLs, YouTube and Vimeo, or
Folder: Select a Media Library folder and show all the images and videos in that folder, sorted by name.
We’ll show you both ways, but let’s start with the selective method first.
Create a Popup Media Gallery by individually selecting your media assets
Once you’ve selected the Enrichment action as Popup Media Gallery, select the Edit Media button underneath. This will open the Select Media Mode modal, like the one shown below:
Select the Selective option.
From the Edit media gallery modal, you can choose where you would like to add media from.
Configuring your Popup Media Gallery with individually selected images and videos
When custom–selecting videos and images for your Popup Media Gallery, you have 5 sources to choose from:
Media Library file
Adding a title to your media assets
Adding a title to your media files allows visitors browsing your Popup Media Gallery to have a better understanding of what each image, or video represents.
For example, if you have two photos of your product: one from the front, and one from the back, you might want to reflect this in the title for each image, giving your visitors a better understanding of what they’re looking at.
Adding a title can also help you organize the media files in your Popup Media Gallery: when you select a new file, it will be displayed with the file name, or file URL, depending on whether it is located in your Media Library, or an external location.
In order to give yourself a better overview of the media assets in your Popup Media Gallery, you might want to give each one a name that helps you identify it. Doing so is easy:
Click on the pencil icon that is located on the right-hand side of each media asset.
In the new Edit media library file modal that opens, you can give your file a name that’ll help you remember what it is.
How to select and change the order in which your images and videos are shown in Popup Media Gallery
All media files you select, regardless of source, will be visible in the Media Items section.
If you’d like to show your media assets in a particular order, you can do so by dragging each asset into the order you want them to appear, like so:
How to delete files from a customized Popup Media Gallery

Once you’ve selected the Enrichment action as Popup Media Gallery, select the Edit Media button underneath. This will open the Select Media Mode modal, like the one shown below.
Click on the Folder option. This will open your Media Library in a new modal, from where you can select the folder you wish to use.
Click Select to upload all the available media files within your folder into your Popup Media Gallery.
