How do I create and set up a gallery?

  • Updated

Creating a New Gallery

To create a new gallery, navigate to the Photos tab on the left side of the page and choose Galleries. Then click the New Gallery button in the top right. 

Give your gallery a name and choose the Shoot Date. You can also select the Gallery Preset you'd like applied to this gallery. If you haven't created a Gallery Preset yet, you will start with a set of default options, which can be updated in the Gallery Settings once you've created the gallery. 

Click Create Gallery and then select what you’d like to do first: Upload Photos, Configure Settings, or Go to the Gallery.


Uploading Photos

You can upload photos to your gallery in a variety of ways. You can click the Add Photos button in your new gallery, with the Desktop Uploader, or through the Lightroom Plugin. Always upload photos in the sRGB color space. Files can be any size, up to 50MB each.

You can organize your photos into albums, which are like sub-folders in your gallery. You can create an album by clicking the Add Albums button. You can upload photos directly into that album by clicking on the album name on the left side of the page. 

Albums can be incredibly helpful for school or sports photography. Since albums are nested within a gallery, your clients can purchase photos from multiple albums with just one checkout. Click here to learn more about setting up albums.


Gallery Settings

You can edit the settings for a particular gallery by clicking the Gallery Settings button after choosing any individual gallery. Here, you can add a password, choose a date to make the gallery live to clients, turn on free digital downloads, and more.
