How to create Photo Albums and add them to Pages

Photo Albums are a great way to show off custom work you've done for clients, examples of different printing techniques, your staff / premises or events.

There are several benefits to using Photo Albums: firstly it's easy to add your images, as regardless of their size, they will display uniformly on the page. When your customers click on any image in your album, this launches a 'slide show' version of the images which shows them in more detail. Finally, you can group Albums into Photo Galleries, which allows you to show several albums' contents on one page without overwhelming your customer.

Here's how to create Photo Albums.

 Step 1: Click on Content > Photo Albums > +

STORE - Add Photo Album

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

Step 2: Give the Album a Title and any descriptive text you'd like to appear.

You can also format the text using our easy content editor.

Step 3: Click on Choose File to browse to your image location, and upload.

When you have several images loaded, you can drag 'n' drop them into the order in which you want them to appear.

Step 10: You can add new images to your album at any time.

Just go back to Content > Photo Albums and rather than clicking on the + icon, click on the text instead. You'll see all previously created albums, and you can click on them to add in new images. This will automatically update the page(s) into which you have added the Album.
