Photo Gallery Tool Overview

As a general Introduction to the Photo Gallery tool, I thought I would go over some of the menu options as well as show examples of each section that is at your disposal when posting a photo to your gallery...so here we go!

 

-Let's start with Part I: Menu Options-

 

Gallery: These are the menu options for the tool itself as par of your website.

Setup allows you to set / change the Navigation Title, Window Title, and URL path of the tool as it pertains to your overall website and Navigation.
Move allows you to move this gallery tool to a new website section in your Site Manager.
Transfer moves this gallery tool from your Sitemason account to that of another Sitemason customer's account. (You would no longer have access to this gallery as the owner).
Preview takes you to the live webpage that reflects the changes you make to the tool.
Clear Cache clears the temporary files at the site level to facilitate a new update to our servers.
Delete ...well... that deletes this tool from your Site Manager but it can always be recovered from the "Deleted Pages" section in your Site Builder. 

Photo: Gives you Menu options for adding new or editing existing gallery submissions.
