Love social sites? We do, too! Your galleries have some great built-in ways for you to tout your photos using some of the most popular services: Twitter, Facebook, and WordPress.
How do I start?
Just click the Share button you see on your gallery pages and select
"Be Social." We'll whisk you to a window containing five different social network options.
FYI: If you're the gallery owner and you don't want your visitors to share your photos this way, disable the Easy Sharing option in the gallery settings. When it's disabled to the public, that button will say Owner Share to you.
You can start typing your Tweet right away and we'll count down the letters for you so you know when to stop.
Double check to make sure you've selected the photo you want. It will preview in the box at the bottom. If you don't like it, click the arrows to navigate to the one you prefer.
If the photo is geotagged with a location, you'll get a chance to include the location with your Tweet, too.
Once you're done, click the Twitter button so you can sign in with your Twitter username and password. This will allow us to talk to them so we can update your feed.
When posted, your followers will see your message and link to your gallery, highlighting the photo that you selected.
You can starting typing your message right away. Tell them what you think!
Next, make sure that the image you want to represent your gallery is shown on the bottom. If you want to change it, just hit the little arrow buttons to step to the next one.
When you're ready, choose the location on which you'd like to post from the drop-down menu. You can share the photo on your wall or to any Fan pages you own.
Click the Post to Wall button to authorize the connection and share your message. Your friends will see what you wrote along with the thumbnail of the highlighted image. We'll also link back to the gallery so they can click to see more.
For Tumblr you can use the gallery title we fill in for you or write something of your own. You can also type a message in the caption box.
Click the arrow buttons to choose the photo you want to share, previewed on the bottom.
ou can opt to post your pic as a straightforward photo, or an article with additional formatting options. Look under the Advanced Settings button on the left to choose the alignment of your text and picture.
You can easily post your photo right into its own entry in your WordPress blog.
Log in and we'll start you off by filling in the gallery name. You can always change this and write whatever you want in the body of the post.
Choose a blog category by picking one of the ones you've already created in your WordPress account.
Make sure the photo you want is highlighted at the bottom, but you can click the arrows to change it.
When you're done, click Post to Wordpress to publish it.
If you ever want to edit or revoke permissions to these services, just choose the Your Social Accounts option from the Share button.
Turning it off
If your gallery is protected with a viewing password, we'll hide the Be Social feature from the Share button.
Similarly, disabling external linking will prevent sharing on some services, though you'll still be able to post to Facebook and Twitter.
At the bottom of the Be Social box you can click the Advanced Settings button to open up a slew of detailed options. Not all of these settings apply to all services, but you can mouse over them to see which ones do.
Image Size: Pick the size of the image you post from thumbnails to large. Dimensions?
Shorten Links: You can opt for shortened links to save space on your posts, or keep them full-sized to take advantage of our great NiceNames feature. We give everyone a http://smu.gs address but Business account holders can use Bit.Ly Pro if they prefer. Set that up in the Discovery tab of your Account Settings, under "Sharing."
Include Geo Location: You can include a photo's geotagging when you post to Facebook and Twitter, so your images can be pinned on a map.
Include Keywords: Leave this option to "Yes" to make sure the keywords get posted along with your pics.
Alignment: Those cute sample diagrams show how your posted images will play along with the text you've typed.
