Hey sakkthi, Depends on your personal preference really, probably for two rows with 2 boxes each I would suggest soapboxes since they are bigger. Try them both and make an informed decision! :)

Can you please describe your steps more specifically? Did you upload to images in the soapbox settings? How did you link them?

Hi, Are you want to achieve something similar to the four images that appear on the Apple website at the footer ? If so, I would simply use Boxes.

Hi, Go to the edit Page screen, which you want the boxes to display and then scroll down, you should see PageLines Meta Settings. Then click on Boxes and find the setting called "Box Image Options" and select Only the Image, No Text.
