Dashboard Pages

GalleryES comes with 5 dashboard pages to effectively manage all of your images. 5 images? 1,000 images? No problem! Save yourself some time and frustration with easy uploading, editing, watermarking, and tagging.

Create Gallery & Add Images

Visit your dashboard page, and locate GalleryES Dashboard > Add Images/Gallery. Click the "Create New Gallery" tab to make a gallery. Once you create one, you can upload your images. Recommended file types are JPG/JPEG, PNG and GIF*. Choose which gallery to upload your files too, then select one or more files from your computer. Note: IE7, IE8, & IE9 and any other browser that does not support multi-upload will not be able to upload more than 1 image at once.

To resize your images as you upload to create web-safe images, please visit the GalleryES Dashboard > Options page, then select "Resize Images On Upload" use the width and height fields to create your desired image size, save, then return to Add Images/Gallery and begin uploading!

*GalleryES Watermark, resize, rotate functions do not support animated GIFs at this time.

The Options Page

GalleryES Dashboard > Options is your primary page for editing watermarks, enabling auto resize on upload, and file cleanup.

  • Enable Resize on Upload - Resize your images when you upload them to GalleryES Dashboard > Add. Will not work when uploading through Concrete5 file manager, so please use GalleryES if you would like auto resize!
  • Enable Mature Content Filtering - Enables the Mature attribute to appear in GalleryES Dashboard > Edit Galleries/Images to use with the GalleryES Content Filter block.
  • Enable Watermark On Thumbnails - On by default, turn this option off if you do not want your watermark to be on the thumbnails of your images.
  • Watermark Options - Customize the watermark to your liking. Please note that only PNG will work when uploading an image for watermark!
  • Remove Old Backup Files - Removes all backup files of images that are no longer in Concrete5
  • Remove Watermarks - Removes watermarks for all images.
  • Remove Backups - Deletes all watermarks and backups of all files.

Set Tags Page

GalleryES Dashboard > Tags is a good place to manage all of your tags. View all tags on all your images, and find how many images are assigned to a particular tag. Rename one particular tag across all of your images. Leave the tag blank to remove it from all images.

Single Page Settings Page

GalleryES Dashboard > Single Page Settings is where you control the visual appearance of your galleries appearing in single pages. This is only for the blocks "GalleryES Tagcloud" and "GalleryES Gallery". Here you can change the gallery type (Tile & Masonry), Pagination, Lightbox, Rows, Spacing and more. The settings page controls BOTH pages, there currently is no way to make each page appear differently. The two single pages that come with GalleryES are "Tag Cloud Display" and "Gallery".

Manage Your Gallery Images As A Whole

Under GalleryES Dashboard > Manage Galleries/Images you can do many things with your images. When you first select a gallery to edit, you will be taken to a details page where you can edit each image individually in various ways. You can add a description and set a featured image for your Galleries for organization.

The "Bulk Action" drop-down is for updating one or more of your images with a certain action, these actions are:

  • Watermark - Set a watermark on the selected images. Watermark settings can be configured under the GalleryES Dashboard > Options page.
  • Resize - Resizes the selected images to whatever your desired width and height are. Keeps the image proportions.
  • Rename All Tags - Overrides ALL current tags on the selected images, and replaces them with tags provided. Separate your tags with a comma using this method.
  • Rotate Clockwise - Rotate your image 90 degrees to the right.
  • Rotate Counter Clockwise - Rotate your image 90 degrees to the left.
  • Restore From Backup - Replaces the current modified image with the image stored in GalleryES Backup, which is the original, uploaded state.
  • Delete Image - Removes the file from Concrete5.

A word regarding large images & bulk actions: This action is limited by how much memory php is allowed to use on your server. For best performance, try to limit your image sizes no bigger than 1,200px x 1,200px. For larger images, you might not be able to bulk action many images at a time. For a remedy on some servers please refer to this great help document: https://drupal.org/node/207036

Managing your individual image:

The Title, Description, Caption, Mature Filter & Tags are all editable. You can edit as many images that appear on the page, so if you have many images you can select to view up to 500 of them at once using the search/filter options! Here are a description on what exactly is used for each attribute:

  • Title - Used for the title="" tags on anchor tags, also used as the title in the lightbox.
  • Description - Used as the ALT tag in the image tags.
  • Caption - Used as the title="" tags on image tags, also used as the caption in the lightbox.
  • Featured Attribute - Used for the GalleryES Newest block, select the images to display if set to featured only.
  • Mature Attribute* - Triggers the image not to show by default, unless the "GalleryES Content Filter" block is present and is active.
  • Tags - Used for GalleryES Tagcloud and tag filter option in GalleryES View. Be sure to separate these by line. They are also case and tense sensitive.

*In order to use the Mature attribute, you must first enable this feature in GalleryES Dashboard > Options. Select "Enable Mature Content Filtering", then in the GalleryES Dashboard > Edit Galleries/Images page you will now see the option to add a Mature tag onto your individual images.
