To add an Image Gallery to your site, open the Site Designer feature by clicking the Site Designer icon in the Left Navigation Menu on your store's Dashboard.
You can add the Image Gallery Block to any Page on your site. Using the Page: Home dropdown menu at the top left of the Site Designer Page, choose the page to which you will add your Image Gallery. In this example, we will be adding them to the Category Page by clicking Category in the dropdown. This will show the Image gallery on all Category Pages.
Locate a spot on your page to display the Image Gallery Block. We decided to add them at the bottom of the page, above the Footer. Navigate to this spot and mouse over the location until the blue Plus Sign icon appears. Your Image Gallery Block will appear below the Plus Sign icon. Click the icon to add your block. The Add a Block menu will pop-out on the left side of the page. Scroll down through the Default Blocks and click on the Image Gallery Block. There are currently five versions of the Image Gallery Block available, so select the one that best suits your needs (we chose the Featured Content gallery). Click on the Add Block button to add it to your Page.
Options for Image Gallery Blocks include Two Images with Buttons, Slideshow, standard Image Gallery (images only, no text), Featured Content (images and text), and Logo Grid. All feature clickable links for your images.
The block has now been added to the Category Page. To personalize the block, mouse over it and click the Edit button that appears at the top left corner of the block.
Edit options for the block include deleting it or moving its position on the page. The Image Gallery block also features the option to Hide on Mobile Devices in order to keep page load time down for your mobile customers. The Images and Text can be edited, the number of columns set, the content aligned and an Overlay can be added. The text, background, and link color can also be edited. To save any edits, click the Done button at the bottom of the edit popout.
To edit the existing Featured Item Images and Text click on the Featured Item in the Edit popout.
You can change add your Image by clicking the Change Image button. Your store's Image Gallery will show and allow you to select an existing image or upload a new one. Click on your image to choose it and click the Use This Image button at the bottom right of the popup to add the image to your Image gallery block. The text is edited by clicking the blue Edit Text button. A text editor popup allows you to change both the heading and content text. Click the Update button at the bottom left of the popup to save your text edits. A clickable link can be added by populating the Link field.
When your edits to the Image Gallery block are complete, click the Done button at the bottom of the Image Gallery Block popout.
Your final step should be to click the green Publish button at the top right of the Site Designer page. Until this button is clicked your changes will not be visible on your storefront.
Viewing a Category page on the storefront and scrolling to the bottom of the page will show your Image Gallery Block. Clickable links on the images can take customers directly to a product.
