Where are my gallery settings?

Updated: 09/08/2015

Accessing Folder, Gallery, or Page Settings can be done from within the Organizer by clicking on the Settings Button. The appropriate settings overlay will open for the page type you're on: Folder, Gallery, or Page.. 



Gallery settings are also accessible from either the organizer or from within the gallery via the customize menu. The Gallery Settings overlay has 9 buckets of actions.


Set your Gallery Title, Gallery Description, Meta Description, Feature Image, and SEO-friendly Custom URL (formerly known as a NiceName) here.

Security and Sharing

Set or remove viewing passwords, private-sharing access, search-engine visibility, and more. Security & Sharing settings (Visibility, Access, and Search settings) are inherited from the folder level by default.

Photo Protection

Set your largest display sizes and image-protection features.


Enable or disable sharing options, comments, and likes.


Show or hide the Buy button. Some account levels can also configure gallery-specific commerce features like backprinting, Boutique Packaging, and more.


The place to update all things related to your gallery's appearance:

  • Gallery style
  • Thumbnail style
  • Sorting
  • Camera info
  • Filenames (filenames won't be shown if you add a caption to a photo)
  • And more!

Quick Settings

Save all the Gallery Settings you just changed as a template by giving it a name. You can easily apply them all to other galleries with a click.    

To apply an existing Quick Setting to your gallery, select it from the dropdown menu and click the checkmark to apply it. Then click Save.

To delete an existing Quick Setting, select it from the dropdown menu and click the trachcan icon. Note that this will delete that Quick Setting entirely, even if it's currently applied to other galleries. So make sure you want to remove it across your site before deleting.
