Key Idea: Organizing Event images into categories makes it easier for consumers to find images, especially in large galleries. This support document will show you how to create and move images into categories. You may do this manually after an upload, or automatically in your initial upload to an Event.
How To Manually Create And Populate Categories
1. Go to the Images tab in the Event
2. Click the "plus sign" for an IPS Session or Client Gallery to add categories.
3. From the modal window, name the category. Add a Category Password to add a layer of security.
Repeat until you have created all the categories you need for the gallery.
4. To add images to your categories, go to the All Event Images view.
5. Select your images and click-drag them into the desired category. Standard keyboard commands like shift-click for sequence, and Control-click (Windows) or Command-click (Macintosh) for images scattered across the Image Organizer are supported.
6. Once you have put the images in the right categories, the number of images in a category will be displayed in the right hand side of that category.
In this example there are 495 images and 454 are uncategorized - have not been moved to a category.
Note: Click on the number to the right of All Images View to open the Settings menu to hide images in All Images from the gallery. In this example the 454 images that have not been categorized will not show in the Client Gallery if All Images is set to "OFF."
7. Categories will appear in a Client Gallery across the top of the gallery.
For IPS Sessions, Categories appear in the All Images tab in the Culling view. This will allow you to cull by Category.
How To Automatically Create And Populate Categories
1. Organize your Event images into folders within folders on the hard drive you will use to upload images. (Each sub-folder will become a Category.)
2. Drag the pre-categorized folder of folders from your hard drive to the target upload area.
Note: Pre-categorized uploads are only supported when you drag the folder with subfolders into the upload area.
3. When a pre-categorized folder is detected, you will be given the option to create categories for and IPS Sessions and/or Client Gallery.
4. That's it! Your images will appear in their respective Categories in the Images view.
