To upload your photos without needing to download any additional software, head to the Photos » Galleries page, then locate your gallery and select the Photos » Upload Photos (Web) menu option.
Selecting the Upload Photos (Web) option will take you to the Upload Photos page, where you can drag and drop your images into the image upload area (or click the Click Here to Select Images button to search your computer for the images).
Once the images have been added to the upload area, select a specific pricing sheet to associate your images with, and select the category that the images should be uploaded into. To upload into multiple categories at once select the Auto-detect Categories option from within the category drop list.
Here are the details on when Auto-Detect Categories option will and won't work
Yes. If a folder (or set of folders) is dropped into the upload area, the folder names can generally be auto-detected for the files found within those folders.
No. If a file (or set of files) is dropped into the upload area, the folder names cannot be auto-detected for those files and the images will be placed within a generic "Photos" category within the gallery. We recommend selecting a specific category from the drop list instead.
No. If the "Click Here to Select Images" button is clicked, you are only able to select files (not folders). When a file is selected, the folder name cannot be auto-detected and the image will be placed within a generic "Photos" category within the gallery. We recommend selecting a specific category from the drop list instead.
There is also a set of optional checkboxes found on the page. The optional checkboxes function as follows:
- Skip Duplicates - The Skip Duplicates option instructs our system to skip any images that you're uploading that seem to already exist within your gallery. A "duplicate" is any image with the same name, that is found in the same category.
- Overwrite Duplicates - The Overwrite Duplicates option instructs our system to replace any existing images in the gallery with any of the newly-uploaded images that have the same names. A "duplicate" is any image with the same name, that is found in the same category.
- Auto Rotate - The Auto Rotate option instructs our system to look for information within each image to determine the proper image orientation. Note: This functionality works for most, but not all cameras and images.
Click the Upload Selected Items button at the bottom of the page to begin the image upload process.
