Photo gallery

A photo gallery is simple a collection of images gathered onto a single page, with hyperlinks to the individual images.  You may have experience of the laborious process of creating these by hand, adding each photo and link one by one.  At AlbanyWeb we can give you a flexible tool that will create the galleries or albums for you - all you have to do is upload the images.  AlbanyWeb has a variety of gallery solutions, including creating dedicated photo albums to simply gathering all the images anywhere on your website and displaying them in a random order.  All AlbanyWeb photo galleries are mobile-friendly, so that the album rearranges itself automatically to fit the screen size. 

We can add a photo gallery to your existing AlbanyWeb website too, just ask.

Elizabeth Wein is a best-selling Young Adult author who originally approached AlbanyWeb to convert her Google Sites site, so as to better display her novels.  Whilst the content remained the same, the new site was much easier for Elizabeth to update, and easier for her fans to navigate too.  We added:

  • a custom page layout to display and organise her catalogue of novels to better effect, including grouping into series. 
  • keyword-based menus, that would update automatically as new content was...
