SUGGESTION: Add a Multiple Picture Gallery Capsule to Hubs

    Is there a way to add a picture gallery capsule to the hubs? Suggestion is for a gallery capsule where we could add multiple pictures half-size, but to be able to add 2 pictures side-by-side.
    I really like the way the images appear in the new related hubs section that was added to the new site design. It would be great to add a similar feature for us to use in hubs to showcase multipe images without using the full size or thumbnail.
    I am adding an example I made from images on a hub to give you an idea of my suggestion. This is an example of a four image gallery. I would think a gallery of 6-8 max would be sufficient.

      Allowing two photo capsules side-by-side is a poor man's way of achieving this. However, we don't allow two photo capsules to be side-by-side because when we tested it, most Hub images were not uniform in size and it made Hubs look janky.

      To do  this, we would have to create a new type of photo capsule specially for galleries. In a new photo capsule, we could re-size auto-magically to make non-uniform images appear uniform. (Of course, if all users as good with photos as you are, Michael, we wouldn't have to this corner case into account! LOL!).

      Let me spec this one out with our engineering team and see how hard it is to build. Thanks for the suggestion.

        Thanks Micki. I do group a lot of my pictures and to make them look professional they do have to match in size. I do see your point about the capsule having to "adjust" images to make them fit.
        If the engineer does come up with an easy way to do this, maybe there could be a "set criteria" for any images used or they would not load into the capsule?!?! Just a thought.
        But, if HP can not feasibily add this, I will keep grouping. lol  Just would like each image to be able to be found through google. Each image another link for possible traffic.
