Getting to Know Gallery 2, Part 3: Building Your Albums

by Melissa Smich on October 6, 2009

In my last two posts about Gallery, I gave you an introduction to the Gallery 2 as well as a walkthrough for the Gallery 2 installation process. Now that you’ve installed your Gallery 2 application successfully, you’re ready to go.

So far you have an empty Gallery page. Let’s fill it with a few photos!

Login with your user name and the password that you created during installation.

Specify your general settings. You can use some settings similar to the ones here:

Create an album while clicking “Add album” on left frame.

Give a proper name for your album; enter a title, keywords and a short explanation.

Your album will then be created. Let’s put some photos in it.

Click “Add Items” on left frame. You can upload your pictures from your computer, from a webpage, from Picasa or even take a live picture from your webcam.

After a successful upload you will see a similar screen like the following. (Yes, it’s my own kitty, MIA)

If someone enters to your Gallery they will see your Gallery, as shown below.

And that’s all there is too it. There are of course many more features and options, which you can spend many hours exploring and learning. Do you have a Gallery 2 website of your own? Share your tips and tricks in the comments! Or just post a link to show off your work!

Doesn’t sound too hard, considering all you can do with your Gallery albums once they’re up and running.

Nice photos of MIA. A very-good looking cat!

I’d love to know what people’s favorite Gallery features are.

I think Gallery would be a great thing for a nonprofit or charity to have. Perfect for showing off the good work your organization does.

I’d emphasize “short” in “short explanation” for your photos. A brief ID is enough; otherwise, it’s good to let photos speak for themselves.
