Hi Chantelle,

There are lots of amazing JQuery Lightbox plugins that include a Photo Gallery Feature.

But that means a little more work! If you want the easy way, just use the Picture Gallery widget under the Basic Tab in the SiteBuilder.

Please tell us if you have anymore question about the Picture Gallery Widget.

Best,
Shawn

Hi Chantelle,

If you would like to add a Photo Gallery to your page, please follow these steps:

1. Drag over a Picture Gallery widget under the Basic Category in the sidebar.

2. Click "Upload New Images" to upload new pictures from your computer or click "Browse Uploaded Images" to get images from your file manager that are already uploaded.

3. Select the images that you want. You can hold down the Ctrl key and click on images to select multiple images at once.

4. Click "Open"

5. Now, it will upload your files and put them into thumbnails.

6. Click "Save" to save your page.

That's it! You can preview it by clicking "Preview". Once you click on "Preview" you can click on the images and they'll pop up in a nice lightbox.

I hope this helps.

Hi Chantelle,

Shawn and Nathan have both given stellar advice. Just thought I'd add a link to the Picture Gallery Widget complete with screenshots in case you wanted additional information.

Thanks for the extra details Laura,

I was going to link to the Picture Gallery Tutorial but I just didn't have time to find it because I'm still working on my Password Protection Project.

Best,
