|Are there any limitations on the file size or number or files for a gallery?|
|No! You determine how many images and which resolutions you provide.
The largest preview images in the gallery view are 900x600 pixels so it is a good idea to adjust the image size during your export accordingly to save upload time. If you provide larger images, we automatically generate a smaller preview to optimise download time for the website viewing and the iOS app. You still might provide larger images if you are going to use the download function. With the download function we will always provide your original images for download so the preview images we generate are only used to view the images on the web gallery and the iOS app.
|How can I add images to an existing gallery?|
|Yes, you can always add or remove images from any gallery.
Just login to your backend and under configure galleries select a gallery. Under images of this gallery you can add and remove any image.
Caution! All images will be sorted by filename. You can easily add in image in the list of current images by adjusting the filename accordingly.
|How can I use the social-media integration?|
|You can activate and deactivate social media sharing for every gallery you create. This way you can adjust each gallery to the wishes of your clients if you like.
Gallery-Viewer has a direct connection to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Each image of each gallery can be shared on each of these platforms. If one of your clients uses the function to hide an image for the guests, this image can not be shared anymore.
You can define the standard text for sharing in your settings section. You can also define your Facebook site and twitter name which will be used when ever an image is shared.
Gallery-Viewer generates a separate site for each image that will be shared. This site is presented in your defined CI, a link to your Facebook site will be integrated as well as a link to your website and your copyright information. If you delete an image this site will also be removed - this way you can stay in control of all your images.
