How to Build Reusable Image Layout Blocks for Adding Divi-Styled Images to Gutenberg Posts

Divi’s Layout Block can be used as a reusable image layout block for adding Divi-styled images to Gutenberg blog posts. This combines the powerful design options and functionality of Divi (for creating beautiful images) with the convenience of writing posts (and adding blocks) with Gutenberg.

In this tutorial, we will demonstrate how to use the Divi Layout Block to design a few stunning image layouts. Then we will add those layouts as reusable blocks in Gutenberg. With this technique, we will be able to add just about any Divi design feature to our images (backgrounds, lightbox, filters, animations, scroll effects, and much more). Then we can use that fabulous design as a convenient image template for adding images to future posts created with Gutenberg.

Let’s get started!
