Creating a Gallery of Cool Photos!
Today I am going to show you how to create photo gallery in Genially. I bet you have a lot of cool pictures you want to show off!
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and you should take this into account when you are giving a presentation so you can keep it interesting, otherwise you will end up with a bored staff or audience. Choosing one images over another is no easy task and that is exactly what we are going to talk about today. Do you want to include all your pictures while taking up very little space? Genially makes it possible.
I am sure that many of you have made a presentation before, by using PowerPoint for example, and I am also sure that you use photos to help explain things better. I bet my monthly salary more than a few people have a crazy amount of images and no idea where to put them. Of course having many photos means that they probably take up a lot of space, you need to use many slides, or you have to reduce the size of the image to fit on a single page- which is not always advisable. Sometimes we have to pick the lesser evil.
One of the benefits of using Genially is that you no longer need to choose! You may ask “how”? It is easy. I will explain everything you need to do so you can add a photo gallery to your genially.
- Choose a photo storage site
The first thing you need to do is to choose a platform that allows you to store and share images. There are many to choose from like Flickr, Photobucket, 500px, Pinterest, etc. I am going to show you using Photobucket.
- Create a photo album
Once you have registered (with Photobucket in this case), you must upload your images into the gallery.
– Click on the Library icon in the upper left corner.
– Now you can click on the Create new album link.
The next screen will ask you to fill in album details and to choose your privacy settings as Public. Then you click Create when you are finished and your album is created.
You click on the name of the album to open it and opens up on a page to upload your images.
- Share your albumOnce you have uploaded your pictures, you can share you album and add it to your Genially. To do this, you must click on the share icon at the top of the screen.
Then you will see this screen:
You must copy one of the provided links to show the gallery in Genially (like we want our gallery in slideshow or story mode):
- Add the gallery to GeniallyThis is the easiest step because all we need to do is copy one of the Photobucket links and paste it into the Content section and then click Embed. Then you can place the gallery into one of the windows on the side (don´t forget you have the option to edit the HTML code within it).
Finally, you just drag the generated gallery and place it in the desired location with the desired size. And there you have your gallery!
As you can see, we saved a lot more space than if we used other options like Powerpoint. This way, we can present all the images and video we want by using a single slide.
I also want to note that all platforms have their own system for creating an album and how to share said album. Although the ingredients are the same, the steps may vary from one photo bank to another.
Of course you can also just opt for the classic option of adding picture after picture from the Image tab and using as many slides as you deem necessary. Genially is a world of possibilities!
I hope I have been helpful and you feel inspired and able to create your own gallery in Genially.
