Creating a New Gallery

To create a new gallery, navigate to the Photos menu, and then choose Galleries.  There, you'll click the New Gallery button.

Give your gallery a name, and choose the Shoot Date. You can also select the Preset you'd like applied to this gallery.  (We’ll give you a basic set of default options, but you can create a Preset for each type of gallery you might make, i.e. one Preset for portrait galleries, one for wedding galleries, etc.)

Then, click Create Gallery.

Finally, select what you’d like to do first: upload photos, go to the gallery’s settings options, or simply head over to the gallery itself, where you can manage it.

 

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, or you can click here to read about your other uploading options. Always upload photos in the sRGB color space. Files can be any size, up to 50MB each.

You may want to organize your photos into Albums, which are like folders in your gallery.  You can create an album by clicking the Add Albums button, and then you can upload photos directly into that Album by first clicking on Manage Albums, then Manage on the particular album, and then Add Photos.

Albums can be incredibly helpful for school or sports photographers! They allow your clients to checkout from multiple areas (say, for parents who have more than one child at a school or more than one sports gallery to look at), since each gallery has its own checkout process.

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.
