As a wedding professional, it is important to showcase your work. Adding galleries to your website is a great way to do this. Your best, most recent work should be displayed on your site for your clients to peruse.
In this post I am explaining the 3 types of gallery designs that Showit offers and how to adjust the settings, plus how to add and edit galleries in Showit.
With Showit, there are 3 types of galleries that are offered – tiled, simple and sliding. Each option will allow you to showcase your work in a different way and the design possibilities are endless.
This allows the user to view one photo at a time, but get a glimpse of what’s coming next and by clicking through, it tells a story. You could even go bold and design this as a full screen.
This style of gallery would be ideal for big life moments that capture emotion such as newborn sessions, weddings, family sessions, engagements, maternity sessions or fine art photography.
With this option you view one photo at a time, as if it were in a frame. It’s a more minimal look, so the viewer can concentrate on the details in the image. This type of gallery is ideal for wedding details, products, editorials, headshots, portraits, engagements.
This format allows you to see multiple images at once, to allow the viewer to get a feel for the overall event and aesthetic. It looks a lot like a Pinterest feed. This works well for weddings, interior design and brand photography.
Remember it is best to only upload your most favorite images, so as not to slow your site down and to ensure your visitors are engaged but don’t become bored of clicking through galleries. No more than 25 photos per gallery is best.
Go to the bottom toolbar and select the middle icon and you will see “gallery” to add. This brings up a box like the below.
Then in your properties panel you will be able to click “manage images” add the images you want, save and then adjust the gallery settings to how you want them.
To edit a gallery you will need to go to the right tool bar, to the gallery images tab and then hit “manage images.” Then you will be able to delete any you dont want, select those you do want and hit the blue arrow to add to the gallery and hit save. Hold down shift to select multiple images to add or delete. You can re-order images under gallery images by selecting the image on the right and dragging it to where you want.
In this video I will show you the 3 different gallery types plus how to add and edit galleries in Showit.
