This gallery editing system allows you to easily construct galleries
consisting of images, text, sounds, and videos. No knowledge of html is
required. And it's all completely free!
Begin by registering. Select a user name and password which you
will use whenever you want to edit your galleries, and enter your email address. Your email
address will be kept strictly private. We will not put you on any mailing list and we will not
distribute your email address to anybody. Viewers of your galleries will be able to contact
you only by forwarding email through the gallery system. Your email address will never be
displayed to viewers. If you forget your password, you may request that it
be sent to the email address which we have on file for you. Since no one will have direct access
to it, you can safely use your real email address. Do not use "munged" email addresses such
as "aoluserREMOVETHIS at aol dot com" because no humans will see it.
Upon successful registration, you are taken to the Gallery Editor. A name will have been filled
in for you which is the same as or similar to your user name. This is the name which will identify your
galleries. It will be displayed on the Gallery Index and other places. You may leave it the same as your
login name, or change it to whatever you want.
You may also enter an overall description of your galleries. This is optional. If you specify one, it will
be displayed with your entry in the main gallery index and on your personal gallery index page.
Users who already have at least two images in their galleries have an additional general information option.
You may specify which image should be your featured image -- the one
which is displayed in thumbnail form with your entry in the main gallery index. The default is a random selection
from all of your images. Each time the gallery index is loaded, an image is randomly selected from all of your
images. Or you may select any image to be your featured image by checking the "Select a new image to
feature" option, clicking the Update button, and choosing from the list which will be presented to you.
If you already have any galleries, you will see a list of them in the order in which they will be
presented to viewers. You may click on the title of a non-empty gallery to view it as a final product. If you
have more than one gallery, you may change the position of any gallery within your list of galleries. Or you
may click on the appropriate buttons to Edit Gallery or Delete Gallery.
Under Create a new gallery, enter your desired name for a new gallery and, optionally,
a description of the gallery. If you already have at least one other gallery, you may also specify
the position for your new gallery within the list of your galleries. Click on Create, and you'll be
taken to the Gallery Edit page to begin editing your new gallery. There you may change the name and
description of your gallery if you wish.
Under "Add a new item to this gallery" you may create a new item to be placed in this gallery.
An item may consist of 1) an image, audio, or video file with a text caption or 2) just a file or
3) just text. Any item may have an optional title. Files may be uploaded from a disk on your computer
or they may be obtained directly from a URL on the Internet. All files have a maximum size limit,
so audio and video files will have to be small. In addition to file size limitations, images which
have dimensions which are too large will be reduced automatically.
If you already have at least one item in this gallery,
you may specify the position within the list of items for the new item.
When you have at least one gallery containing at least one item, you will be listed in the
Main Gallery Index.
Text may not contain html in general. For example, If you type
<FONT COLOR="red">, that exact text will appear in the
message, rather than the effect which was probably desired.
URLs within your text will automatically be made into active links. Do not enter
something like <A HREF="http://www.nanday.com/">Go here!</A> -- instead, just enter
http://www.nanday.com/ and the program will take care of turning it into a link. Enter the full URL
including http:// -- if you just enter something like
www.nanday.com/ it will not be converted into a link.
There are a few bits of formatting html which are allowed in your text:
<B> </B> <I> </I> <U> </U>
All items in your gallery will be displayed, and you may edit any of them by changing any of
the fields. You may also rearrange the items by specifying a new position for an item.
All galleries are subject to editing and/or deletion. Any items which are off-topic or offensive or
abusive or commercial (unless relevant) are subject to deletion. If you see such an item, please
use the Contact link at the bottom of the page to write to us, and
we will investigate the offending item.
If you would like to contact the creator of a gallery, you may click on the Contact link
while viewing their page to begin
composing an email. In order to protect the privacy of the author, you will not see the
email address of the recipient.
