Galleries overview

Gallery in Edit View

Galleries are what hold the photos and videos in your account. When uploading photos and videos, the photos and videos are placed into a new or existing gallery.  

Each gallery has a website view that is used to present online the images it contains.  The gallery's website view includes a thumbnails pagephoto page and gallery slideshow, all of which are customizable via Customize Website View.

Below is a website View of a gallery.
Gallery Example

Galleries cannot be subdivided into multiple galleries.  To organize your photos, you can create multiple galleries for each category and organize them using groups.  

Every gallery can have a description including title, caption, category, and keywords.  The text used in the description helps greatly with your site's Search Engine Optimization (SEO).

An assigned cover thumbnail visually represents each gallery.  The first image in the gallery will be automatically used as the cover thumbnail but you can use any other photos by assigning as the new cover thumbnail.

Galleries can be moved from one group to another for easy organization. A gallery can be added to a list of Featured Galleries, and the website view of a gallery can be previewed and customized.

You can control access to the entire gallery or individual photographs inside the gallery.

All galleries will have their own unique web address (URL) that can be used to access the gallery through a web browser.  You can find the direct link (URL) to the gallery in the Share panel.  You can also invite visitors to the gallery by sending a gallery invite from your account.
