In order to be able to follow this tutorial, we are using WP Media Folder and the WP Media Folder Gallery Addon as they will give you all the needed tools.

It will pop up the options to easily set up your first gallery, in this step, set a name, if you want it to be a subfolder, assign a folder and finally, select the gallery theme that you will use.
This time we will call it "Elementor Gallery" and select the Material gallery.
Set it up as you like and then click on Create.
Now that we have the gallery set and the theme selected, let's add images, you can upload them, import them from Google Photos or also add them directly from the Media Library, we'll add them from the Media Library, for this, click the WordPress logo.
This will load the media library witht the folders from the plugin so select all the images that you want to add and finally click on Save.
All the images will be imported to the Gallery addon to be used in this gallery.
This would finish the gallery creation, there are many other good tools that will allow you to customize your gallery more like margins, sizes, colors, and alignment.
For now, we will leave this gallery like it is and go to Elementor to see how easy is to use this Gallery Addon directly in the Page Builder.
