Smug Tip of the Week: Quick Settings for Quick Setup
Lots of people have asked us: “Can I apply the gallery settings from one gallery to another? How do I apply certain settings when creating new galleries?”
Yes you can! The solution is Quick Settings.
Creating Quick Settings
These are really simple templates for your settings that you can create, save and apply to any gallery on your site. Here’s how to use them:
1) First, go to any gallery where you have your settings just the way you like, or edit the gallery settings to have your preferred settings, and save them.
2) Then, in the gallery settings under the Quick Settings section, choose “Save settings on this page as…” and then give your new Quick Setting a name.
Tip: Choose a name that is descriptive and relevant. Mention the watermark, your public/private settings, or your printing settings so you know what it is at a glance. For example, “Bottom watermark, No Share” is a much more useful name than just “New Quick Setting 1″.
3) After you give your Quick Setting a name, click Save.
Applying Quick Settings
Now that you have this Quick Setting saved, you can apply it to other galleries by opening that gallery’s Settings page, then choosing it from the drop-down list at the top:
Want to apply this Quick Setting to lots of galleries? Choose the “Apply Quick Settings to multiple galleries” link, which will let you pick which galleries and Quick Setting you want to use. Note that you can also delete that Quick Setting template by hitting the “delete template” button, visible once the setting is selected.
You can apply it to brand new galleries, too, before you even upload any photos. That option is right in the New Gallery box:
