Create a gallery

To create a new gallery simply select "Gallery" from the "create content" drop down list in the navigation bar on the left.


This will take you to a page where you may upload a mass of images by simply drag and drop into the box or by selecting add file and selecting each file 1 by 1.

PLEASE, Please, please set your files to have a reasonable filename.

  • Make the filename be descriptive - Name of game, size of image, aspect ratio, widescreen or Eyefinity/Surround
  • Take out extraneous characters, letters and numbers

Once you have added the files to the list hit "start upload", this will process each image in the list and build a gallery for you.


Notes on Uploading & Tagging

  1. You can view the progress as it uploads each file, when this is done, you will be presented with a settings page for the gallery where you may give your gallery a title and add tags.
  2. You can use the tags field to add a set of tags to the gallery, which can be used for filtering the gallerys by tags.
  3. For example I have created a Shift 2 gallery, there may also be other users whom have created gallerys with Shift2 images in, so we can use this tag to filter gallerys.
  4. The tag field will popup with suggestion tags to use when you start typing a tag in, this way you can choose to select an already existing tag or create a new one.
  5. You may also use multiple tags, seperating each one by a comma " , ". Example "Shift2, Eyefinity, Surround"

When these fields have been updated, you can then save the gallery and view it.
