            Creating A Gallery

            Create a Gallery

            Creating a gallery on Darkroom Event Gallery is a simple process. You're able to customize galleries to suit the needs of your brand or for different events. 

            1. Your Galleries
            

            Start from the page where you view your galleries. 
            To get back to this page, click 'Galleries' from the top navigation bar in the app.

            Once on this page, to create a gallery press the '+New Gallery' button in the top right. 


            2. New Gallery / Main Settings
            

            There are a number of fields you will be asked to add details into in order to create your gallery. 

            Gallery Name
            Name your gallery. If you are using Darkroom Booth for iPad, make sure to name your gallery the same as your event so that the photos will transfer automatically. 

            Event Date
            Select a date for the event from the calendar view. 

            Client Site URL
            Add to the end of your URL to form a path to the gallery. Your clients will use this URL to access the gallery, so it may be best using the event name. 
            e.g. https ://yourdomain.eventgallery.com/Lauras18th
