Your online gallery holds many great features that can help you manage your photos and aid you in ordering them. Many are not utilised to their full potential so here is a guide on what they are and how to use them to make the most out of your online viewing experience. Aside from seeing your photographs, your gallery allows you to explore different colour options, guides you in the cropping that may occur and even allows you to compare images side by side to help you pick the best one for you…
Black and white
When you select a print size, more options will appear. One of these is the ‘colour options’ drop down menu. Simply by clicking on the arrow you can select to see your image in black and white or sepia tone. Please be aware that this is just a guide to give you an idea of how it might look – the actual contrast etc on the final image might be slightly different. If you decide to order the picture with a different colour option to the original, there is a small charge added because it will be manually edited specifically for your order.
The print sizes we offer are standard print sizes of frames readily available in any shop. However, the size ratio of each print can be different from the original image. This means that cropping may occur. When you select a print size, black bars will appear over the image to give you an idea of how much of the photograph will be cropped out in print. If the amount of cropping is too severe, try a different print size. If the crop is in the wrong place you can click ‘crop image’ on the right and reposition where to crop the picture.
To activate the ‘favourites’ feature, you must first create an account with us. This way, the gallery can remember the photos you select as your favourites so you can come back at any time to quickly and easily find them. Once you are logged in, by clicking the heart icon under the pictures you would like to highlight they are saved into your favourites.
If you have two or more pictures that are similar to each other but are not side by side in your gallery, you can make use of the ‘compare’ tool. Simply click the ‘compare’ icon beneath an image which looks like a flag. The picture will appear in a bar at the bottom of the screen. You can then find another image and click ‘compare’ so at the bottom of the screen you can easily and quickly toggle between them. Alternatively, you can also select ‘compare all’ at the bottom and it will display the two images side by side. This feature works for comparing multiple images too.
