How It Works

Create New Album

After Logging into your account, you will be taken to your Dashboard. All of your galleries will be displayed here along with easy to use options to help you organize and deliver your galleries to your clients. To create a new gallery, click the "Create New Gallery" button under the PixOasis logo.

Add New Image

You will then be taken to a new page where you click the "Add New Images" button.

Our Express Uploader will appear. Click the Add Images button, highlight the files in your computer that you want to upload, click the upload button and your gallery will be created.

Once your images are uploaded, close out the Express Uploader and your gallery will appear on your monitor. Except for the administration controls that are available only to you such as "Add New Images" or "E-Mail Gallery" etc., this is how your gallery will appear to your clients when you email them the link. They will be able to download individual images or the entire gallery right from their screen.

There are also various options available for each image including choosing the image you want to use to represent the gallery on your Dashboard (Highlight), editing the text, rotating the image, moving the image to another spot in the gallery, copying and moving the image to other galleries, hiding an image or deleting an image.

Also available on your Dashboard are "Gallery Options" to customize the look of your gallery.

Clients can also edit your images by creating lightboxes that they can view and/or forward to others in their work group. To create their lightbox, all they have to do is click the Lightbox check box for any images they want to include, then click the "View Lightbox" button to see their lightbox.

If you return to your Dashboard, you will see the first image in your gallery as the placeholder "Highlight" image. You also have convenient drop down menus for your various admin needs including editing the title, description and captions of your album as well as a button to email the album, allowing or disallowing high res downloads and the ability to delete a gallery altogether.

E-Mail Album

Now it's time to email the link to your gallery to your client. You can click the "email the Gallery" button on the Dashboard or the Gallery page. When you do, the e-mail form appears with the link to your gallery along with a greeting pre-embedded on the bottom of the page. In addition, PixOasis offers some handy time saving features. You can access a drop down menu from previously sent messages, you can request a read receipt if possible and you can control how long the link stays active each time you send a new link to an album.

When your clients click the link, your album will appear instantly on their monitors. They do not have any clumsy logins or passwords to bother with.
