In this help topic we will discuss the process of adding photos & photo albums to Wedding Connected. Above is a video outlining the whole process but for those who prefer to read, please continue reading below. This feature is only available to Featured & Premium members so if you are currently a Basic member, you will have to upgrade to use this feature.
Photos are displayed on your profile and across many other pages/sidebars of the Wedding Connected site.
Some of the reasons why uploading photos is a great idea are:
- Good for SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) – Higher in search engines such as Google & Wedding Connected.
- It’s a great way to get more business and land more clients.
- It increases your exposure in our directory.
- You can show off your work to potential clients. A picture tells a thousand words.
So now that we have that out of the way, it’s time to learn how to add photos and albums to your profile that could potentially be seen by thousands of people. It’s easy, we promise!
Step 1 – Log in to your Wedding Connected account. Once you are logged in, you should arrive at your Member Dashboard.
Step 2 – On the left side of your Member Dashboard, you will see a menu list of items. Look for ‘Photo Albums’ and click that and then click ‘Add Photo Album‘.
Step 3 – In the ‘Album Name’ box, give your album a clear name that tells visitors exactly what they will find in that album. (Ex: Wedding Hair).
Step 4 – In the ‘Tags’ box, enter keywords separated by commas. (Ex: wedding hair,wedding hairstyles,wedding hair melbourne).
Step 5 – In the ‘Description’ box, enter a description of what people might find in this album. (Ex: This is an album of all of our wedding hair work).
Step 6 – Press ‘Save & Add Photos’.
Step 7 – Once the next page loads, click the ‘Browse’ button and select all of the photos you want in this album from your computer. Then press ‘Upload Selected Photos’. You will then receive a popup message to tell you the file upload was successful. On this popup, click ‘Continue’.
Step 8 – The page will now reload and display all of the photos you uploaded with a ‘Title’ & ‘Description’ box next to them. We strongly advise that you give each and every photo a title and description that explains the photo. Once you have given all of your photos titles and descriptions, press ‘Save Changes’ at the bottom.
Step 9 – At this stage, your photo album will be live and you can leave the page. However, if you’d like to rearrange the order your photos are in, click the ‘Photo Display Order’ tab and you can then drag your photos in whichever order you would like them to show. Once you have set the order, you do not need to press ‘save’ or anything, these are automatically saved.
Step 10 – You’re done!
