How do I change the background color in the Presentation Mode?

You can set the background color for your galleries individually for each gallery. To do this, go to the Gallery Settings and open the Presentation Mode tab.

First you decide on the brightness – bright or dark.

If you activate the “Dimmed color” option, you can use the button on the left to choose a grey background. Depending on your choice of brightness, this will be a light or a dark grey.

With the slider to the right you can choose a light coloring for your background.

If you don’t activate the “Dimmed color”, the background of your gallery is simply white or black.

In the small preview below you can directly see the color effect in combination with your images.

At the end you save your desired color at the bottom with the button “Apply Changes”.

This way you’re sure to find the perfect background that makes your images look their best!

What is the Presentation Mode?

The Presentation Mode is a view trimmed to a pure presentation. It is perfect for weddings, events and other picture presentations.

What exactly is different about this mode?

Your gallery is beautifully trimmed in the Presentation Mode. The range of functions is reduced to the most necessary to avoid distraction from the most important things, your images. What remains is a pure, beautiful gallery view without annoying sidebar, with impressive, large header image, larger preview images, horizontal navigation, large gallery title, individually colored image view and so on. Only the download function is left if you have enabled it in the Gallery Settings.

 

Where can I activate the Presentation Mode?

The Presentation Mode can be activated in your gallery settings. If this setting is activated, your gallery will be displayed in the Presentation Mode when your client opens it.

How can I test the Presentation Mode myself as an admin?

After you have activated the Presentation Mode in the Gallery Settings, the gallery looks the same as before. To test the new view, click on “Client View” in the upper right corner. There the gallery will appear exactly as your client will see it when opening the gallery.

Can my clients still create image selections, comment on images and so on?

The Presentation Mode is used for pure presentation and download of your pictures. If you want to give your clients more functions, you can activate the “Allow switch to edit mode” function in your “Gallery Settings”. If this point is active, your clients can switch to the usual mode by clicking a button on the top right corner of their browser. There you will find all the practical functions of PicDrop that you already know. All gallery settings you set still apply here. With another click, your clients can return to the presentation mode at any time.
