In your Gallery Settings, you can enable or disable downloads as well as control what sized image your clients can download.

If you’re currently on the free plan, the only available download size in your Galleries will be Social Media Sized (2048px on the long edge). You can upgrade to unlock full-resolution downloads + all of our other features!

Free downloads are disabled by default, so you'll need to enable downloads in your Gallery Settings when publishing a new Gallery to make those available to clients.

Tip: To access the Settings of a Gallery you've already published, click Galleries & Apps in the top-right corner of your Collection. Click Settings, and navigate to the Downloads section.

Customize Download Settings in a Gallery

Under the Downloads tab, enable free downloads. Now you can begin customizing your download settings!

Downloadable Sizes

In this section, you can choose what download sizes to offer to clients. You can offer the full-resolution images only, include social media-sized downloads, or even a custom size.

Folders for Download

By default, all Folders in the Collection at the time of publishing will be available for download. To change this, go to the 'Specific Folders' tab and unselect any Folders you don't want to be downloadable.

Note: Disabling Downloads for a Folder will also make it so that clients cannot download Favorites Lists that contain images from that Folder, since it is no longer available for download.

Download PIN

Enabling a Download PIN gives clients control over who can download from their Gallery.

When turned on, a 4-digit PIN will be generated, and it will be required for anyone downloading from the Gallery. This PIN can be reset or disabled at any time.

Watermark Downloaded Images

In the Design tab, we covered the option to display a watermark when viewing the Gallery. In the Downloads section, you have the option to apply a watermark to downloaded images as well. This means that when your client downloads an image, it will include the applied watermark.

Downloading from a Gallery

In the Gallery, your client can download their full Gallery, individual Folders, or single images.

For single images, if you have one download size enabled, just click this button, and the image will download right away. If more than one size is enabled, clients can choose which size they want to download.

For the entire Gallery, Folders, or favorites lists, clients will need to click the download icon in the top right of the gallery.

On the download screen, they can choose what set of images they want to download (full Gallery or specific Folders), and if there are multiple sizes available, which download size.

A download link will be sent to the email they enter on this page!
