A Contributor gallery is where artists can group their own content that shares a common concept or theme. Galleries appear at the bottom of the asset details page as more from this artist and on the artist's profile page in the "Galleries" tab.
- You can add content to unlimited galleries.
- We recommend adding each asset to at least three galleries.
- Clients see gallery names, so name them something descriptive and relevant.
Similar to keywords, one way to break down your gallery subjects is by considering Who, What, When, Where, and How. Some examples:
Who: age groups (kids, teens, seniors), skills or professions (artists, mechanics, teachers), style of portrait (headshots, looking at camera, laughing)
What: broad concepts (food, business, family), narrower concepts (people eating food, event food, food in restaurants)
When: seasons, holidays, vintage
Where: you may want galleries for countries, states/provinces, and cities (i.e. assets from Venice can be in a “Venice” gallery and an “Italy” gallery)
How: creation styles (created on film, double exposures, shot with a drone)
You can access the series & galleries section of Image Manager from the “Manage Collection” button in the top left corner.
After creating series and galleries, you can populate them by dragging and dropping your assets.
Setting Gallery Cover Thumbnails
While viewing a gallery in Image Manager, right-click on an asset to add it as a gallery cover. You can select in which of the 3 slots you want the thumbnail to appear.
