what's up guys computer i'm dave gilbert here and today is our next video in our wicks tutorial series now as I have mentioned I am going to be uploading a wicks tutorial every single day and I can already tell you there are 35 videos in my queue to get out to you guys and hopefully I could help you build your first website or build a website here in Wix so let's get started into dit in to today's video which is how to add and organize a gallery in wigs so the first step is we're going to go over here to our Add button once we click Add we will click on gallery once we have clicked on gallery we see how many different styles which has given us to use as a gallery so there's grid masonry slideshow thumbnails strip slideshow strip showcase accordion freestyle collage honeycomb impress slider 3d slideshow 3d carousel and an animated grid so as you could see Wix has given you lots of different options to use as a gallery which is very cool because it helps you give some style to your website but for lack of style into today's today's tutorial I am going to use the basic slideshow so I click slideshow it adds it into the website and then for just some good design tips I'm going to span at the length of a body to make it look even and make it look good now how to organize your images in your gallery you're going to double click the gallery once you have done that I'm going to first show you if you see in the top left corner of each image you see a number 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 that number represents the order it will come in the slideshow so this one will be first second third and so on so that is um just indicating if you want to change the order of the slideshow it's very simple all you have to do is take the image and drag it next to or in between each and other image and just choose what one you want and that's how you alter the order just that simple by clicking an image and dragging it where you want it to be placed now once you click an image you're going to see over here on the right side it popped up with what image you clicked and it shows the data over here so it gives the title the description and a link so here real quick if you do not and by the way you don't have to have any of these you don't have to have a title you don't have to have a description and you don't have to have a link but if you do not have a title it will use the title of the image file you have saved it under so whatever the file name of the image is that's what they're going to use pre-loaded as the title of your image so I always recommend adding a title just in case on your file that you have saved it under doesn't actually name the image or go with the image at all so I would always add it this type add a title and then a description will also pop up with your image if you hover over it on the slideshow so if you want to add a description you can um description nothing pops up with that so you're fine if you leave that blank if you don't want to have a description with it but if you do I would always recommend it's more data more better SEO standards and then finally if you have maybe a deal on your website in the picture is promoting the deal you could add a link and by adding a link you could add a link to a web address a page email document you could add an anchor so that will take you to the top of the page bottom of the page or wherever your anchor is at so a link could be useful if you're running a deal and you want to just send people to a certain page they'll click the image and it will take them right there so that is how you add that data over there for each image now let me show you how you would remove an image say you don't like an image on here we'll say we don't like five all you have to do is click this trashcan down here in the bottom right of the image and it removes it just like that now if you want to add an image to your gallery you simply go up here to add images and it goes to your images that you have uploaded to your account so if you have multiple websites on your account and you have multiple images it will pull all of those images together and you just go in and choose your image or search your image based on what you've saved it as so say I like this old image right here I double-click it bring it into the gallery and then I could organize the order just by that and that is how simple it is to add and organize a gallery here in Wix I if you don't get it you'll always get the hang of it might take you a few shots to get it but it's very simple to do and I hope you guys
