In this article, we will learn how easy and fast it is to deliver and share your photos with CloudSpot! 🎉 We will go through how to email Galleries and download links with your clients. Let's get started!
Deliver Galleries & Images
The first step to delivering your client's Gallery is to click on the Galleries & Apps button in the upper right-hand corner of your Collection. Click Email on the Gallery you’d like to send out.
Email can be pulled up from your saved contacts or copied and pasted directly into the Send To field.
CloudSpot will automatically copy you on any Gallery emails. This is a great way to keep a record of your emails and to see things from your client's perspective. You can opt out of the BCC function by deselecting the check box in the bottom left corner.
Next, you'll see two options for sharing your Gallery - Online Gallery and Online Gallery & Zip File.
The Online Gallery selection is the left side button. With this option, your client will receive an email with a button that opens their Gallery. They can view, download, and purchase images - all depending on your Gallery Settings. 🙌
Online Gallery & Zip File
When you include a Zip file with your client's Gallery email, they will be able to easily download all of their images right from the email! This option makes it SO easy for your clients to quickly save their images without having to go through their Gallery.
If there are multiple Folders, you can customize which Folders you want to share in the direct download link if needed.
The settings of your ZIP file are also customizable independent of your Gallery!
Here's a breakdown of your Zip File Settings:
Limit Downloads: This controls how many times your client can download the full ZIP file.
Download Expires: After this date, the download link will no longer be available for download.
Image Size: You can deliver a ZIP file of full resolution, social media, or custom-sized images.
Watermark Images: If enabled, the images your client downloads from the ZIP file will be watermarked.
Lastly, you'll just need to compose the email to your client. If you have saved Email Templates, you can quickly choose a template from the drop-down menu and then add any final adjustments before sending it out!
✨ Pro Tip: Personalizing the subject line of your emails lowers the risk of your email getting caught up in those pesky spam filters!
Hit send and that's it! ✉️
Your clients will receive a beautifully customized email with quick actions to view and/or download their photos. Because CloudSpot is mobile-friendly, Galleries can be emailed when you’re on the go too!
