Left-Handed: Setup the Gallery

General: How to Use the OCMX Gallery

The OCMX Gallery allows you to manage images separately from posts or the WordPress media manager for easy setup of Galleries and Albums. Each Gallery is a collection of images with one featured image or “Cover Image” shown on the Gallery page template and in Gallery widgets.

Create a New Gallery

  1. Click on Theme Options → Gallery
  2. Click on the Create New Gallery button.



Uploading your Images

On the New Gallery page you will have the following options:

  • Title – Enter in the title of your gallery
  • Description – Give a description of the gallery/portfolio you are creating
  • Filter – This will optionally allow you to add affects to you Gallery images. These effects include Gray Scale, Negative, Increase Brightness, Increase Contrast, Apply a Gaussian Blur and Colorize.
  • Gallery Date – Enter a custom date for the collection
  • Select Images – Click on Browse to select your image and upload.  Repeat to add multiple images at once.
  • Image Dimensions – The theme will automatically resize your images to fit perfectly in the theme, however if you have modified your theme and require different dimensions then you can change them here.

Once you have filled in the relevant fields, click  Create Gallery and your images will then be uploaded (this can take a while depending on the speed of your internet connection and your server speed).


Editing your Gallery or Images

To Edit a Gallery, click the main Gallery link in the Admin menu and click Edit on the Gallery Cover Image.

To Edit individual images, click the Manage Images tab, then click Edit on a thumbnail. This tab displays a form listing each image thumbnail, and allows you to add details to each image. The options include:

  • Image title – Enter the title of the image you have uploaded
  • Caption – A brief description of the image
  • Remove Picture – Click this to delete the image from the gallery
  • Album Cover – Select this to make that particular image the cover of your gallery

You are also able to drag your images up and down the list which will change the order that they are displayed in when visitors are viewing your gallery. Simply click and hold on the image to drag them up or down. By default, the galleries will display your images in order of first uploaded (bottom of list to top).



If images are not uploading or saving, you may have permission issues on your server preventing their creation. See the following:
