To get started go to http://www.pbase.com/bmcc and login using the proper user name and password. To do this -
This will bring you to the "Dashboard" page.
Click on "My Galleries" in the column on the left, this will bring up all of our galleries. The page that displays all of our galleries is called the "root gallery." In order to add new galleries you need to edit the root gallery.
Click on "edit root gallery" at the top of the window.
Scroll down and find the "Create a New Gallery" bar
We've just created our first gallery and PBase.com has put us on the editing page for the new gallery for further refinements. That's where we want to be ...
The new gallery is there but we need to set up a few parameters and add a header image.
Let's start with a screen capture of the neccc_2011_fall_nature gallery
The there are only a few fields we have to fill in here:
Now we need to add a header image to the gallery as it would be unfair to let one member's image represent the gallery before the judging has taken place. Once we have a winner we can replace the gallery header with the winning image.
Header Image: You will need a graphic file for the initial representative image for the gallery that you have set up.
Change Gallery Position: If you want to change the position of the gallery in relation to the other galleries that is easily done. Your new gallery should have been added in front of all the older galleries but if it is at the end of them and you would like it to be first here is how you do it.
Add a Description: If you would like to add some text to the beginning of the gallery, to describe a competition for example, this is how you would do it.
Congratulations! The new gallery is set up! Good work!
Now you need to populate the gallery with the image submissions. We will cover how to do that next.
