To do enable this (recommended) check Resize for small screens like so:

This option displays gallery images as a tall vertically scrolling page of images on mobile devices (recommended).
Below are some other options available on the Look and Feel tab:
Fade in gallery images
This loads your images with a gradual per-image fade-in as the page loads.
Allow visitors to save images
When checked No, this disables saving images via right-click or dragging to the desktop. (It's important to note that saving images from any website using other methods is still possible.)
Use a background image
This provides various options for uploading a background image. It may be tiled, full screen, and/or only visible on the home page. For a full screen image, upload a JPEG image that is around 1800 pixels wide and 1100 pixels tall. As well, it's best if this image is no larger than 500 KB to 1000 KB in size (for a faster page load).
These icons are used throughout your site can be styled or interchanged with custom image icons you upload.
This is the icon that sometimes displays when certain parts of the site are loading. you can change this by doing the following:
- Click on the Loading icon link
- Click the Browse... or Choose File... button and select a custom loading icon.
- Click Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
When using a custom loading icon, it's best to upload an animated gif file. These can be often found online at sites like ajaxload.info.
Browser tab icon
This icon is displayed in a visitor's browser tab. For example:
You can upload your own icon by trying the following:
- Click on the Browser tab icon (favicon.ico) link
- Click on the Browse... or Choose File... button and select a custom image (less than 50 KB in size)
- Click Save Changes at the bottom of the screen
You can also use a site like favicon.cc to create the image you upload.
You can change most of the icons throughout the site. If you can't find color and size combination that works for you, click the Use pixel image option, and then upload your own custom-made gif image. (NOTE: The Use pixel image option is displayed very lightly because it is a rarely used feature for advanced users )
Checking Use pixel image and then clicking the icon name, allows uploading an image file directly.
