Fold3® Training Center
Your Gallery is a great way to gather and organize images you have uploaded to or found on Fold3. You need at least a Basic Membership and be logged in to use the Gallery. To access your Gallery, click on your member name in the header, then select Your Gallery.
Adding your own images to Fold3 is easy, free and a great way to preserve and share historical photographs or documents.
From your gallery:
- Click the Upload to your Gallery button in the top right.
- Select one or many images from your computer.
PC: Hold down Shift or CTRL while clicking to select multiple files.
Mac: Hold down the Shift or the Command/Apple key.
- Choose whether you want to upload your images to your Gallery or to a specific Collection.
- Click the Upload Images button.
Fold3 supports .jpg, .gif,.tif and .png images that are less than 10 megabytes in size.
You will notice that once you click Upload Images, a progress bar and an estimated time to upload will be shown for each file while it is being uploaded.
Once the process is complete you will see a confirmation message and a link to view them in your Gallery.
Once the images are in your Gallery, you can edit their names, add descriptions and connect them to other images. The more detail you provide, the easier it will be for people to find what you have added.
You can organize your images or group them around a theme using Collections. You can add an unlimited number of Collections with as many combinations of images as you need. Images in your Gallery may be added to more than one Collection.
On the left side of the gallery is a Your Gallery link. Clicking on this link will display all of your images.
Creating a Collection is as Easy as Drag and Drop
You can create a Collection just by dropping an image onto the dashed box found in the upper-left corner of your Gallery.
To select multiple images, hover over an image and check the Select checkbox when the bubble appears.
You can add more images to an existing Collection by dragging images to that Collection in the list in the left column.
Rearranging Images in Your Gallery
You can rearrange the images in your Gallery by clicking the Arrange button and then dragging and dropping images into the place you want them. When you are done arranging your images, click I'm Done to go back to viewing and using the images in your Gallery.
