In the previous tutorial in our Setting up an Image Gallery series, we showed you how to organize your gallery using categories. Now that you have created your Image Gallery and put the images into categories, you can update your Photo Gallery further.  Some of the options you can change are the descriptions for the pictures, the size of the pictures, and more.

Adding a Description to your Images

Not only can categories have descriptions, but each individual picture can too.  On your Images screen, click on the pencil under the Edit header next to the image that you want to add a description for.  The following box will appear:


On that box, as you can see you can change the name of the picture, and on the second tab add a description.  When you are done, click "OK."

Changing the Appearance of your Images

You can also change the size of the thumbnails and other features of your Image Gallery as well.  In your Image Gallery, click on the Settings tab and the following page will display:


  • Category image width (px): This is the size that the "primary" image for a category is, in pixels.
  • Image thumb width on page (px):  This is the width of the image thumbnail within your categories, in pixels.
  • Image thumb height on page (px): This is the height of the image thumbnail within your categories, in pixels.
  • Image thumb width on image details (px):  This is the width of the image thumbnail on the image details page.
  • Images per page: This is how many images will show within each category on one page.
