Navigating Your Gallery
Whether you are just visiting a gallery or the gallery owner, each individual has the ability to save their own favorites by their email address for quick access in the future. If you are the gallery owner, you’ll have some additional features that effects the entire gallery for any visitor. As the gallery administrator, you’ll find an easy way to find your photos, hide photos, and label them for future use. Many clients comeback again and again to find a photo to share with ease, even easier than having them stored on a thumb drive which is one of the reasons we offer extending your online gallery for additional years.

Viewing any photo in Black and White
A great feature in the gallery is the Black and White tool. Allowing you the option to view any photo in black and white. Once you decide you like it in black and white, you can purchase it in print or digital.
Downloading the Digital File
When the final gallery is ready, and digital files was part of your package, this will give you the step by step on how to download.
For Wedding galleries, visitors can usually have access to social media size files for free that will include a watermark. For digital files without a watermark, they can be purchased in larger sizes. For gallery owners, if you are logged in with your administrator passcode, you’ll have access to download based on your package purchased.
Purchasing Professional Prints
You can purchase professional prints and digital files right inside the gallery. With digital files, you have the ability to order prints from anywhere you would like. But there are definitely some advantages to ordering them here.
With access to the best professional printers using archival inks and papers, your photos are made to be fade resistant up to 200 years under the right conditions and up to 100 years in partial sunlight. Most local printers are only fade resistant to 60 years and 10 years in partial sunlight.
Monitor calibration. Our monitors are calibrated to the printers so the color rendition is best in class. We also know what the pictures are suppose to look like, so if a print isn’t right, we process it again.
Enlargements are also edited to fit the size before printing. Some distractions that are not noticeable in a 4x6 may be more glaring in a 8x10, we’ll edit those a little more.
Hiding Photos from Visitor View
A tool only available to the administrator. Find out how to hide photos from gallery visitors while retaining them in your gallery for your own viewing and access.
Labeling photos is one of the most powerful tools the administrator has in their tool box. You don’t have to just tag photos for products here, but it can organize your thoughts for any products you may be interested in else where as well. It’s a way to catalog your photos.
