I fact it’s so easy to use you will wonder how you ever managed before! 
Here are the simple steps to sharing your high-resolution files:-
1.  Go to
2.  Upload the image or other files you want to add to the Share Gallery by simply dragging & dropping them onto the upload box or by clicking the upload box and browsing to the folder where the images are and selecting them that way.  Files should be less than 100 mb in size and no more than 100 images or files per share.   You can create multiple shares if you have more images.   

3.  Review your uploaded images and files and make sure ALL the images you wish to include are shown as you cannot change the contents of your file transfer once you have confirmed it and left this page.  Hovering your mouse over an image thumbnail will show the file name and image size like this.   

When you upload other files types, they will show as a blank thumbnail with the file name and size displayed like this:

While the share page URL is open, you can keep adding more images or files to this share Link until the limit of 100 files is reached.
4.  When you have finished uploading images and are satisfied they are all there, click the Share Link URL to close the new share window and go to the download page your clients will see.

TIP: Right-click on the share gallery URL and open the share Gallery in a new tab if you think you might want to add more images before sharing.


File types other than JPEG or PNG will appear in the Share Gallery as a file folder with a download arrow and just like images can be individually downloaded or downloaded together with images files as a Zip file:

5.  Check all the images and files you want to send are there and then copy the share link URL and send it to your client with some simple instructions.   
TIP:  If any images are missing or you want to remove a file you uploaded in error, you will need to start again with a new gallery, as you cannot edit a Share Gallery after you have navigated away from the upload window.  Previewing the finished gallery in another tab will allow you to still add additional photos to your gallery in the share upload window, but you cannot remove unwanted images and will need to start again to exclude an unwanted image or file you accidentally uploaded. 
PLEASE NOTE: To download images, your client will need to access the Share Gallery on a computer NOT a mobile device. 
It is just as easy for your clients to view and download their images in easy steps:-
1.     Open the email you sent with the Share Gallery URL on a computer and click on the Share URL link 
2.     This will open the unique Share Gallery where their images are displayed as large thumbnails. 
3.     Choose how to download the images:  
a.     Click the Download Everything as Zip File Button to automatically download all the images & files as a Zipped file to the default download folder on your PC or another location of choice.
b.     Click on a Single Image to enlarge it to full screen and click the download button to download it. Other file types cannot be previewed within the Share Gallery and will need to be downloaded first in order to view them so its a good idea to make sure they have good descriptive names.
4.     The share gallery will display the number of remaining days before it expires, reminding them to download their images before then as they will be unavailable without payment to extend access to the Gallery. 

NOTE: If your clients fail to download the images within the allocated 7 days they will need to pay to extend it.  Expired Share Galleries are purged periodically from the server and there is no guaranteed time limit within which they can be reactivated.   

NOTE: If they do not extend the gallery before it has been purged and request access later you will need to create a NEW Share Gallery which will have a different link by uploading the images again. They will then get a further 7 days to download their images and the option to extend it again.  It is up to you whether or not you charge for this service. 

Here is a sample client email you can copy and use:- 
Your personal Photo Share Gallery is now available with your (High Resolution)  Images (and print release/archive instruction) ready for you to download.  Please note that the Share Gallery will
ONLY be available for 7 days after which you will need to pay a fee to extend it.  If you wait too long, it will be deleted permanently.
You will need to view the Share Gallery on a computer to allow you to download them and save them to a folder. 

 To get started open this email on your PC, and click on your unique link below to open your Share Gallery: . (Replace with the unique share gallery URL) 

 It's easy to download and save your images 
1.     Choose from the following ways to download your images:  
  • Click the Download Everything As .zip File Button to automatically download all the images and files as a Zipped file to the default download folder on your computer or a location you choose.
  • Click on a Single Image to enlarge it and then click the download button to download it to the default download folder or a location you choose. 
2.     The Share Gallery will display the number of remaining days before it expires. Please make sure you download ALL your images before then, as the Share Gallery will NOT be available after the 7 days have elapsed *.
