You can edit the images globally from within the gallery, or you can edit them locally on the pages you use them on. The edited versions automatically appear in the gallery as separate files.

You can also delete images from the gallery, or from the pages they're used on, and set special page-specific attributes.

The Drop Zone

You'll find drop zones on the add / edit pages of products and categories, in your Settings app for your logos, and throughout the Store Editor app in the Content section:

To add a photo, click and drag it from your device into the drop zone and release it. This action both adds the file to your site's Image Gallery and applies it to the page you're on. You can also press Browse Gallery and either choose an existing image or add a new one. The gallery currently accepts most popular image file formats.

Once you've added a photo, you can add others by repeating the process. If you've added several photos, use the arrow icons on each side to scroll through them. You can also hover over any image to reveal additional options:

  • Press the Pinterest icon to pin the image to your Pinterest account.
  • Press the pencil icon to access the photo editor.
  • Press the i icon to edit image attributes.
  • Press the x icon to delete the image from the page you're on. This option doesn't remove the file from the image gallery.
  • Press the right arrow to move it to the right in your image set, or the left arrow to move it left.
