Moving to our latest templates

02 May 17

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

30 August 16

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.

It is now even easier to make image selections in admin.digitalphotogallery.com. By using a combination of mouse and keyboard modifiers you can speed up the process of managing your images. Holding down the alt key allows you to click anywhere on an image icon to select it, while the shift key allows for quick batch selections.

FTP users

If you regularly upload large sets of images or if you'd like to upload without having to log in, this feature is for you.

The new FTP users panel on the upload screen allows you to create an unlimited amount of virtual FTP users, each of which can be mapped to a set within DPG. Images can then be uploaded using your favourite FTP client, preserving metadata and set structure.

Introducing templates

Every Digital Photo Gallery account has access to an ever growing library of HTML5-based website templates, all of which look amazing when viewed on anything from iPads through to huge desktop displays. The graphical admin interface means you don't need to know any code to design and update a site, but if you already have the skills, you have full control of the style sheets and custom jQuery libraries that each site is built with.

Watch the video to see just how easy it is to create a new website and see below for samples of a few of the templates that are available to all users right now.
