How to create an image gallery

Here they get featured images to be displayed from each indivual portfolie piece. But what if I want to create an image gallery? Advanced Custom Fields only has a paid option for this.

Is there not a way to filter out the images from a certain post_type using the WP-query? Can you anybody me any other suggestions or links to certain code snippets?

Have actually managed to solve this using 2 WP-queries and an 'post_parent__in' argument. Here it is:

$query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'realisatie-gallerij', 'posts_per_page' => -1, 'fields' => 'ids' ) ); $image_query = new WP_Query( array( 'post_type' => 'attachment', 'post_status' => 'inherit', 'post_mime_type' => 'image', 'posts_per_page' => -1, 'post_parent__in' => $query->posts, 'order' => 'DESC' ) );

if( $image_query->have_posts() ){ echo '<ul class="gallery">'; while( $image_query->have_posts() ) { $image_query->the_post(); $imgurl = wp_get_attachment_url( get_the_ID() );

  echo '<li class="gallery-columns-4 gallery-item" style="background-image: url('. $imgurl . ');"><a href="'.$imgurl.'"></a></li>';

} echo '</ul>'; } wp_reset_postdata();
