okay so today I'm going to show you guys the Wix Pro Gallery which is a new feature of Wix that they have added to supplement their existing gallery options which were always good but they weren't actually as good as this one this one actually can control the quality we can control a lot more about the layout the sizes the fonts the rollovers and so forth there's even share options like options and some other things that I'm going to show you so when you first want to add a Wix pro gallery to your page what you're going to do is you're going to first click on your plus icon then click on gallery and make sure to scroll down because they have this down at the bottom of the list currently so if you scroll down you'll get to Wix pro gallery I've already added a Wix pro gallery to my page I'm going to just quickly delete that and so we can start fresh so I'm going to do this one more time I'm clicking on add gallery I scroll down to see Wix pro gallery and I'm going to add this to the site now I can close this window and here I have my new gallery Wix automatically populates it with existing photos and example videos and even an example text box so you have a place to start with the first step you probably want to do is well there's two options really you can go to manage media which you can change out these images and put in your own you can also go to settings so you can decide what kind of layout you want to have let's go to settings first so we can see the different layout options so we know how many photos we want to add to our new gallery if I click here this is on layout this is where you're going to find all your different layout options so you can play around with these and see what ones you like best keep in mind how many photos you have to work with and you know if you want it to be square you have to kind of think well I need to have an even number of images so that the grid doesn't have a blank space although you can always add one more image or change the columns and rows to adjust it to work for really any even-numbered amount of images you can also use all these other things columns a nice one this is works as a strip so it can span the full width of the thing and they would skin they would you can scroll down to see all the photos which is kind of a nice easy way to add a nice long page with all your work with this format in any of the formats you can always stretch them to the full width of the screen by clicking on this little double arrow icon when you click stretch to full width this is going to go to the full width and then allow you to have those photos fill the screen which is a nice feature as well I'm gonna go back to one of these other layouts just to kind of show us again how it works with the different stretching version so you can see now it's stretching to fill this full screen other options you have are the hover options you can show a title when people have hover so you can set up your titles which I'll show you in just a bit you can also have a download feature so people will be able to download the original photos which may be really nice if you're trying to share these photos with friends or clients there's also social sharing which allowed them to share it on Facebook or Twitter or whatever so there's and it's kind of a preset little system you could turn all these on and off you can also scroll down with the heart icon there's a little heart icon that when people click like on Instagram or Pinterest they like the picture and it can even count to them and show that 20 people who liked a certain photo you also have control over the text alignment that shows up in the over the hover as well as the color overlay so you can play around with all these settings and your fonts as well which is also great because some of the previous Wix galleries did not have the ability to fully control your fonts and your size and etc and now you have all those features here in this pro-gay Lori the next thing is to show on expand so if you want somebody to click on the picture you can actually have it do different things where it will expand for them or it can download and so forth so you can control these things as well which is really great there's also here this is the image quality a lot of people have had problems with Wix really kind of over compressing your images and so they always look a little blurry or just not quite perfect as they were when you uploaded them this is where you can control that and really have full control so you can have a hundred percent quality if you want so it doesn't compress them at all note this will you know affect your page load time so if you have hundreds of photos or even twenty photos and if they're large it can be much bigger download hogs so just keep that in mind you have control over that but you know they always recommend here to keep it to 90 which is almost a hundred percent but a little bit compressed so that it downloads and loads for your page quickly the next option is the managed media so this is where I can go in you can change all your pictures you can add new pictures you can reorder pictures so for example I can click and hold drag it over and then I can change the order of this gallery I can also add my own gallery or my own images I should say you click on image and you can choose images from the gallery that you've already or all the galleries that you've ever uploaded all these images are going to be here you can also add your own images by clicking on uploaded images so that's a great feature of course you can add all your new pictures you can reorder things and now there's also this new text box which Chindit exists before you can click on this and you can customize this text in this box in this editor so it's a pretty cool feature that kind of allows you to add some graphic design to your galleries without having to you know build a custom image and upload it and so forth you can actually create some type and so forth here you even have control of course over your fonts and all that just as you do with any other part in Wix which is wonderful I'm going to update this I'm going to say I'm done and here we are here's my new gallery that I've moved or things around remember you can always click on preview to see how things work so you can kind of get an idea of what it's looking like on the fly so I'm gonna go back here let's say I want to add a title to one of these images for the rollover so I click on the image in this area and I click on title and here is my title I'm going to you can also add a link and a description so if you want to link the picture to a another page or an outside website you can do that click on done again I can hit preview and then now I can see how my title is showing up upon that rollover and also remember I can control the fonts and everything in that so this is the new pro gallery so much better than all their other galleries because you have a hundred percent full control over everything in the gallery whereas before we were a little more limited to what their templates offered which was always a frustration but I'm so happy to see they have this new Wix pro gallery and I hope that you enjoy it remember it's under the add feature under galleries scroll down to find Wix pro gallery .
