A gallery template has been created for easy setup of a Photo Gallery that includes a slide show, normal sized photos and photo thumbnails. This will work with JPEG, JPG, BMP, GIF, and PNG images.
Start folders on your desktop to match the photo gallery set up. Create two folders one for thumbnail images and one for section images.
To create the Photo Gallery, select the folder to place the gallery.
The site folder should now include the (User named) test-gallery folder, a section sub folder, and a thumbnails folder inside of the sections folder. A Default page is created for the gallery. The Default page must be named Default, and the thumbnails folder must be named thumbnails.
There are two ways images can uploaded to a Photo Gallery. Main photos and thumbnails can be individually uploaded or can be uploaded in large groups using a tool called Zip Archive.
Select the Section folder in to place the larger images for the gallery (test-gallery/section).
Photos uploaded individually can be edited, in the upload process.
Display Name, Title and Description are required. This title will display on the Slide show, and make the photo accessible to screen readers. This can be done during the uploading process or after if uploading a Zip Archive.
