From within a gallery its possible to download images if permission has been provided. The process for downloading is very straightforward.
There are various options to download images in batches or individually and at various sizes. I will explain the steps for downloading single or multiple images and also how you can select the size.
When viewing a gallery you will see on the top right a large blue ‘DOWNLOAD’ button. Press this.
You know have two options for selecting images
OPTION (A) DOWNLOAD ALL IMAGES
OPTION (B) DOWNLOAD A SELECTION OF IMAGES
- OPTION (A) DOWNLOAD ALL IMAGES
When this button is pressed a new window will open with a grid of images from the gallery. There are two buttons on the top right ‘SELECT ALL’ & ‘CLEAR SELECTION’. If you want to download all the images obviously press ‘Select All’. The image thumbnails will be highlighted in blue indicating they are selected. Then press the ‘Continue’ button at bottom right of the window.
> Now proceed to step 3 below.
- OPTION (B) DOWNLOAD A SELECTION OF IMAGES
Follow the steps above and instead of pressing ‘Select All’, click and hold shift to select multiple images consecutively. If you want to select batches of non consecutive images just hold the cmd+shift keys while selecting images (You may be familiar with using the same technique when selecting files on your computer). When your finished choosing press ‘Continue’
CHOOSING THE IMAGE DOWNLOAD SIZE.
After pressing ‘Continue’ the image secltion window will close and a new window willl open. You then have a drop down menu with the option to choose the size of image(s) required. The defualt is ‘Orginal Size’ (if this option has been provided.) In most instances ‘Original Size’ should be left as the Download Type. You can if required at this stage select a smaller size to download. This might be preferable if you would like a faster download time. Please note that the image reproduction quality might be effected if a smaller size is selected.
After choosing your image download size press ‘continue’. A link will now be generated and displayed. When you press the link downloading of the images should begin. You can also right click and choose the location of where the files should be downloaded to your computer. Otherwise the files will be placed in your default download folder.
The files will be downloaded as .zip file which will need to be uncompressed in order to view the image files. To do this just double click the .zip folder and follow the instructions. That’s it.
