Yes, Albums can be hidden within a Gallery. Use this setting if you want to ensure that clients can ONLY view images within the album you've provided them the direct link to view. 

This is an optional setting that can be made available by Support, just write into support@shootproof.com to get started. Once the setting is made available, you can activate it in your galleries in the Advanced area. 

Use this setting carefully. We recommend reading the warnings below before activating this within a Gallery. 


To Hide Albums within a Gallery:

1. Go to Photos > Galleries

2. Click on the specific gallery you would like to activate the Hide Albums setting within

3. Go to Gallery Settings > Advanced

4. Activate Hide the 'All Photos' Album

5. Save

 

IMPORTANT - please read before activating this setting

*If you activate the Hide Albums setting within the Advanced area of the Gallery Settings, you will not be able to do the following:

  • Provide a link to the Gallery - Only direct Album links will be valid
  • Require an Email Address - Because the Hide Albums setting requires that clients be directed to a specific Album, they will bypass the Gallery Introduction page. Their email address will still be collected, but not until they take an action within the Gallery. 
  • Require a Gallery Password - Because the Hide Albums setting requires that clients be directed to a specific Album, they will bypass the Gallery Introduction page. If an Album Password is required, visitors will be prompted for this Album Password before they can view the images within the Album. 

*If you activate the Hide Albums setting within the Advanced area of the Gallery Settings, you will be required to share each individual Album link rather than the Gallery link.

1. Go to Photos > Galleries

2. Click on the specific Gallery you've activated the Hide Albums setting within

3. Click on the Album you would like to share

4. Go to More Actions > Share Album
