Galleries overview

Galleries organize your resources for use on your website, like folders. Unlike folders, they do not impact the URL of a resource. This means you can move files and add them to more than one gallery. Galleries provide the organizational benefit of folders without locking your files into a permanent location in your storage system.

Create a new top-level gallery by clicking Create Gallery on the Galleries tab, or add a gallery under an existing one by clicking Create Gallery on the three-dot Action Menu of the desired parent gallery. Choose a name, and add a description or thumbnail if desired.

Galleries can be moved after they are created by clicking on Move Gallery from the three-dot Action Menu. You can change the name, description, or thumbnail of a gallery after it is created by selecting Settings from the Action Menu. 

It is not required to be a site admin to access or upload to a gallery. Permissions for galleries can be set for specific groups in Group Manager. Refer to the Resources permissions article for more information about this process.

Moving media into a gallery does not move them out of Resources. You are only taking a copy of this media file and placing it into a gallery where it can be displayed for a particular purpose.
