Cover Photos | Create Even More Beautiful Client Galleries

Posted on February 24, 2020 by theimagefile under New and Improved Features, Theimagefile, Websites and SEO

We are very excited to introduce a new feature – cover photos! Cover photos are a beautiful way of introducing a client gallery to your visitor. The cover photo shows one chosen image, full-screen, with the name of the collection in the centre.

There are different display settings to choose from, including whether the image is 100% or 90% high to whether the image remains at the top of the collection or just displays once when the customer first visits the collection.

In this example, a full-screen cover photo is shown with the collection name and entry button. Once you click on the entry button, you drop down to the entire collection.

In this example, a cover photo set to 90% high is displayed with the collection name. To view the entire collection you simply scroll down, however, once you click on an image in the collection the cover photo is removed.

You can customise the cover photo for each collection giving you maximum control and ensuring the best choice for each collection. Follow this help article to enable cover photos in your own collections.
