You can easily publish digital photos as an online gallery for your friends and family to view. To do so, you'll need to create a new folder in your files, upload your photos into that folder, and then create a FastMail photo gallery website.
Click the "More actions" drop-down menu and select Create subfolder. A new text field appears.
Click the name of your newly created folder to open it. To add photos, use the Upload section at the bottom of the page.
Once you have uploaded files to a folder, you can create a photo gallery by clicking the Websites button, located on the top and bottom right of the file list. This button will take you to the "File Storage Websites" page. To create a new photo gallery:
The two default styles use exactly the same HTML, but different stylesheets. You can create your own CSS stylesheet, and use that with the photo gallery, if you prefer.
If there is a file
photogallery.css in the same directory as the photos, then it will be used to display the gallery page.
A photo gallery can be sorted by filename, date, or using a custom sort order. To change the sort order:
Click the More Actions menu again, and select an option under the Sort gallery (if any) section.
You can manually specify a sort order by entering a sorting rank in the "Sort order" field for each of your photos. Entering a
1 in the field, for example, makes that photo appear first. Entering a
2 makes that photo appear second, and so on. Select Sort order from the More Actions menu to have the album sorted according to the ranks you assigned.
By default, any comments found in the file are displayed with each picture. In the grid view of the gallery, they will display when you hover over a photo's thumbnail. In the slideshow view, they will display below the photo. To add or change comments to your photos:
Edit a photo's title and comments, and click the Save comments button.
You can include some basic html tags in the comments, for example
<b> to bold text, and so forth. If you add a URL, such as
http://example.com, it will automatically be converted into a hyperlink.
If your photos contain EXIF data, these comments will be imported when you upload the photos. Certain lines within a comment are treated specially. The lines must be of the form:
FastMail will look for EXIF tags in this order: ImageDescription, Description, UserComment, Headline, Caption-Abstract, LocalCaption. FastMail also supports special comments. The list that follows can be helpful if you wish to use EXIF data to categorise and label your photos.
Yes, etc.), then that image is used as the cover of the album when the parent directory is viewed. If no image has an IsCover item set, then a random image is used as the album cover image.
