Create a gallery

Updated -

Galleries are where your photos will live once uploaded. You can name them however you choose, organize them in folders, customize your design per gallery, and more!

Create a Gallery

You'll want to first make sure you're logged in. Then click Create > Gallery in the header tool bar...

...or go into your Organizer and click Create > Gallery there instead.


Once you've clicked Create, an overlay menu will appear for you to choose your gallery settings. Here you can name your gallery, give it a description, choose social-sharing options, select a cover image, and more.

Tip: NiceNames are now called Custom URLs and can be created in the Gallery Settings page after you create your gallery. 

Read more about all the settings available for your galleries.

Once you've filled in the gallery name and other information, click Create. You now have a brand-new gallery on your site, and you can start uploading photos to it.

Your new gallery will automatically be added to your homepage. (But it doesn't have to be! Learn how to customize your homepage.)

Change Your Gallery Settings

If you change your mind about any of the initial settings you chose for a gallery, you can tweak them later. There are two places you can go to customize your gallery settings:

  • Within a gallery. Click Customize > Gallery Settings in your header toolbar.
  • Within the Organizer. Click Organize in the header toolbar, select the gallery/galleries you want to change from the folder tree on the left, then click Settings.

Customize Your Gallery Style

You can change the way your photos appear within a gallery by selecting from one of our gallery styles.

Within your gallery, click Customize > Gallery Style and select one of the options to adjust the layout. (Compare the different gallery styles.)

You can also change the entire gallery's appearance by using our Customizer. Click Customize > Content and Design and then select "+Make This Gallery Custom" near the top.


Pick and choose how you want to customize the gallery using Content, Themes, and Layout.

If you've saved any themes, they'll show up in the Themes tab, and you can pick one to use for your new gallery.

Customize Your Gallery Prices

If you have a Business plan, you can apply Pricelists to individual galleries. To do this, navigate to the gallery you want to update the click Sell > Gallery Pricing.

A window will open showing you which Pricelist you currently have applied to the gallery.

Click on the drop-down menu to select a different Pricelist. Or select "Manage Pricelists" to create a new list if none of your existing pricelists work for your selected gallery.

Once you've selected your new pricing, click "Save."

What Can’t Be Changed

There’s some core content that you can’t change. You’ll know these can’t be touched when you mouse over them in customization mode and see a little lock icon in the corner.
