Use the Photo Gallery area to post pictures to your website in a gallery/slide-show format. You can create custom categories for your images or use the main gallery.
Images can be viewed in details layout or in thumbnail layout in the photo gallery area by selecting the appropriate links below the gallery selections. The default layout is details.
The details layout will show the title, caption, and size of each image as well as a thumbnail preview of the image. Users can click the title or thumbnail links to view the image full size. The full size screen pops up in a separate window and allow users to move from one image to the next using the next and previous buttons.
The thumbnail layout in the main photo gallery area displays only the thumbnail images and links to the full size image screen.
To add categories to the photo gallery, click the Edit Categories link at the top of the photo gallery area. You must be logged in as an editor or an admin to see the button. Enter a category name and click the add button to save the category. Once you add category it will appear in the selection menu in the photo gallery area.
To add pictures to the photo gallery, click the Upload Photos button in the photo gallery area or go to the administration area and click the Add Pictures to Photo Gallery link. Once you are there, use the form to add pictures. First, click the browse button and select the image from your computer. When you upload the image a thumbnail preview of the image will be automatically created. Your image will also be automatically resized to an appropriate size if it is too large for a website. Images directly from a digital camera are usually too large to fit full size on a website. Next, fill in a title for the image. The title is required. The other options for the caption and subject are optional. Click the Upload Image button to save the image. Depending on the size of the image this may take a few minutes. Be patient and the form will tell you when the image upload is complete.
To edit and delete photos, go to the photo gallery and click the edit image or the delete image button. You must be logged in as an editor or an administrator to see the edit and delete buttons.
