If you’ve taken advantage of DPG’s features to create multiple websites, you may have several homes for different facets of your work. You may also have other web presences scattered across different services such as blogs, ecommerce or other social media profiles.

Our latest template helps you to bring these together with a beautiful splash page, the ideal starting point for visitors to discover what you’re all about. Check out our live demos here to see what you can do with it.

The Versatile Splash layout is sets-based and effortlessly adapts to the number of items you add to create the sections. So whether you’re a slashie or a multi-hyphenate, the Splash can be a gateway to all your talents (and there’s always room to grow).

The Versatile Splash template is created with the latest web technologies, scales across all modern devices and looks fantastic on mobile. It supports images, MP4 video and animated GIFs.

As this is a standalone template, it can be placed in front of any existing DPG site without the need for a rebuild. Follow our guide here to set one up for yourself. 

Versatile Splash is available to all users with paid accounts now.

Improved Design Section

There are a number of updates to the design section to make it easier than ever to customise your website's theme and give you more control over the layout and presentation of your content.

We rebuilt the font management system, added a curated selection of modern webfonts and enabled slider controls for font weight and sizing.

Page controls have now been made visual, allowing you to preview settings like image size and spacing in real-time. 

Also in the page section, you can now select from a number of different gallery loading animations.

All our templates have been updated to support these new design features, create a new site or migrate your existing one to try them out.

Moving to our latest templates

Every aspect of DPG has been optimised for all modern devices for a long time now. However, we know that some of our oldest users may still be using our first templates which don't offer all of the latest features.

If you've been with DPG from the start and are still using a template like Scaling 01 or Scaling 05, then now is a great time to create a new site and take advantage of the fully responsive new designs, new page types, inline video support and much more.

Sites built using our current templates are also easier than ever to customise using the new visual design tools, seen below.

DPG makes it quick and simple to migrate your current live site to a new design with zero downtime or disruption to your visitors. We've put together a guide to help you, right here.

If you’re using an old design, next time you have some free time, give it a try! And of course if you have any questions, you can always email us at support@digitalphotogallery.com and we'll be happy to help. 

Updated Support

We are excited to announce that we've launched our brand new support system at support.digitalphotogallery.com.

We've already begun our mission to document DPG's breadth of features by converting over 100 guides to the new article format, which takes advantage of cutting-edge browser features to deliver easy to follow instructions with animated depictions of the DPG interface in action. And as with everything we do, the new support site works perfectly on any device from mobile phone to 4K display.

Behind the scenes, it's also easier for us to maintain, which means better quality and more in-depth help articles in the future.

If there's an article you'd like to see added, let us know at support@digitalphotogallery.com.

New Admin Image View

Admin Thumbnail View

Here's a small new feature that can make a big difference to how you manage your images in DPG. Your admin interface now has the option of a thumbnail view, which shows your photos in their original aspect ratio (unlike the icon view which is a square crop of the image).

The thumbnail view is ideal for getting an overview of your work. In sets with hundreds of photos it makes it much easier to find what you're looking for and it's perfect if you need to select lots of images. Don't forget the keyboard modifiers for enhanced selections, too.

Better still, you can choose the size of the thumbnails to suit your needs - make them smaller to fit more on the screen or bigger if you've got a large monitor to play with.

Check out the video below to see how it works and then give it a try in your account. You can set thumbnails as the default view for new sets and keywords in your account settings.
