Here is a quick help post for all those wanting to select some favourites from their special event for the purpose of sharing that selection with friends and family, or to let us know what favourites you’d like to use for your wedding album, wall art and so on.
The steps are pretty straight forward, but we would strongly advice that this is all done on a PC, Mac or Laptop. Trying to use a mobile device such as a iPad, some of the functionality is reduced and/or works slightly differently.
Step 1: Login to your galley
You’ve probably already done this several times before, but if not simply login in your gallery using the password screen. To find our galleries quickly follow this link: http://gallery.photographyforlife.com/photography-galleries
Step 3: Select your favourites
Once you’ve logged into your gallery you will see a menu at the top right of the scree. Simply click “Select Photos”. Your screen will update into select mode and the top menu will change.
You can now click on each of the image to select or deselect the images as you want. As you hover you mouse of each image, an overlay will appear showing a heart symbol top left and a circle bottom left of the image. Click anywhere on the image and the circle will now have a tick inside it, click again and it will remove… it’s really that simple.
Repeat this process until you have selected all of your photographs. TIP: You will see at the top of the screen just below the cancel button a caption showing you how you have selected on this occassion.
Once you have select them all, you now need to complete the selection buy going back to the top of the screen (you may need to scroll back to the top), and choose “Add To Favourites”. TIP: You can do this as many times as you want to add more photographs to your favourites.
Step 4: Create an account to save your favourites
When you click on “ADD TO FAVOURITES” a pop up will appear asking you to login, or create an account. You must have an account in order to save your favourites. Do which ever is appropriate for you? Note: This is NOT your gallery login details, you must create a personal account.
You will see a message appear at the top left of your screen. Your favourite have now been placed into a group called “My Selection”. TIP: You can create multiple groups for different cluster of favourites, e.g. a group to send to grand parents, and another group for friend enjoying the party or photo booth.
Step 5: Review your favourites
You can now review your select by navigating to your group, view the tool bar option on the top left of your screen. Once in this screen, you can review, delete, reorder, and much more.
Step 6: Share your favourite or send to the photographer
If you want the team at Photography For Life to see your favourites, you must share these with us. Again this is nice and easy, click on the “Send To…” button of the top left of your screen.
You now have two options in the dialogue box. “Send To Photographer” or “Send to a friend”. If you choose the first, simply complete the boxes as appropriate. You can leave us a nice message or explain why you have selected particular images, and so on here. You don;t need to worry about how it gets to us, the system will do all of that for you automatically.
That’s it. You can now view, select, review, save and share any of your favourite with us and your friends and family. It’s great to share!
Why not create a rogue gallery of who did the worst “dad dancing” and send it to your friends?? Have fun…
