Create a New Gallery

This tutorial will show how to create a new Club Gallery.

This tutorial is best viewed on a full-sized screen.

Go to the Galleries Page

Select "Galleries" from the "Photos" menu.

Make sure you're in your club first, otherwise these options won't appear.

Open the "Create Gallery Window"

Click the Plus Icon to open the Create Gallery Window.

If you don't see the plus icon, then your account is not authorized to create galleries.

Title and Description

Enter a Title and Description for your new gallery.

You can create multiple galleries with the same name, but to keep things from getting confusing, you should avoid that.

Also, avoid giving a gallery the same name as a club member, because each club member will have a personal galleries named for them already.

Gallery Dates

Enter the opening and closing dates for your new gallery.

Members will only be able to submit photos between these dates.

Gallery Color

Select a color for your new gallery.

Colors are optional and have no set meaning assigned by MyCameraClub. But you can devise a system of color codes yourself, choose them randomly, or not use them at all. Completely up to you.
