Recreate this effect in the editor

Part 1

See full website→

1. Apply a 1x3 grid to your section (1 column x the number of rows you want to add images to)

2. Select Adjust Grid, then Edit Grid

3. Set each row height to 100vh

4. Drag in a container from the Add panel to each grid row

5. Stretch each container to fill the row

6. Select your first container again

7. Select the Design icon in the Inspector Panel

8. Select your background-color

9. Repeat this action for every container

Part 2

10. Drag in an image from the Add panel to the first container and make sure it’s attached

11. Select the image and open the Inspector panel

12. Dock the image to the centre

13. Drag in images to all other containers and dock to center

14. Select the container and open the Inspector panel

15. Go to Position in the Inspector panel

16. Beside Position Type, choose Sticky

17. Set all other containers to Sticky

Result: In preview, as you scroll, the pictures will overlap one on top of the other until they are all stacked.

Notes: Make sure that each of the containers are in the correct grid row and do not cross grid lines. You can also rotate the images slightly to give a cool, messy pile up effect.
