Creating a site media gallery
Showcase brand assets like logos, headshots, and product pictures
In this article, we'll cover how to upload downloadable site media for your visitors to see in your Site Media gallery. Having a direct link to your brand logos, latest product images, and company pictures makes it much easier for the press to find and save high-res images when they cover your stories.
Here are some shortcuts:
- Adding a new album to your site media
- Organizing your media gallery albums
- Adjusting the look and feel of your galleries
Prezly's Site Media gallery allows you to store multiple images and albums that are easily accessible by site visitors.
1. Go to your Site Settings page by clicking the site name under Sites in top header.
2. Select "Media galleries" and click on "Create gallery"
3. Once you click on "Select Images," a handy window pops up where you can add your gallery name, description, and all your images, as well as an option to make the gallery viewable by the public. You can also drag and drop images into the placeholder.

Images can be added and edited in a gallery by clicking the gallery (once opened) and by clicking the "Edit" button in the gallery settings overlay.
A popup will open, and all images can be managed from there. You can also edit your image descriptions as well as rearrange images.
Your gallery albums will show up as a list on your Media gallery settings page. From here, you can see how many images are in each gallery, toggle them to public or private, and click each one to add, remove, or adjust images. You can also press the six dots on the left to rearrange your galleries.
Once you get to eight galleries, you'll have the option to search for your albums without having to scroll endlessly to find the content you need.
💡Pro tip: Currently, we only support image files (PNG, JPG, GIF), but we plan on adding support for other file types in the near future. If you need anything specific, be sure to get in touch!
- Change the layout
Within your gallery, you have plenty of customizability options to change how your viewers see your assets. You can change the order, size of the images, and width of the spacing between images.
- Edit album name and description
You can easily edit the album name and title within the gallery.
- Rearrange the images within the album
Click "Edit" in the Gallery settings to rearrange your images.
Click "View gallery" to see what your images will look like to your audience.
We previously had a feature where, if your images weren't assigned to a gallery, they would be placed in a "Recently uploaded" section to be categorized later.
This is no longer the case, as all media are automatically placed in new galleries. If you previously had images in the "Recently uploaded" section, they can be found within an album titled "Untitled gallery" in your gallery list.
