This is a label for identifying a gallery. It can consist only of lowercase letters, digits, and underscores. (birds,birds2,birds_3)
This name is used as part of your gallery's permanent URL (
While it is possible, try to avoid changing this, because any links on other web sites to this gallery will break.

After creating your gallery, you can describe it with a title. For example, if you have a gallery consisting of photos from your trip to Spain, you may want to entitle the gallery "Spain".
The title is usually a very short description of the gallery. It is also used in the web page's title.

After giving your album a title, you may also want to describe it. For example, if you entitled your album "Spain" you may want to give it a description such as "Spring Break in Spain- 2004", or something even more specific. You can put as little or as much detail in your description as you like.

If this is not checked, your description will be automatically formatted.
Specifically, there will be BR tags inserted wherever you had a linefeed so that your description won't be all run together.
If you want to control any formatting yourself with your own html, then check this to prevent automatic formatting substitutions.
Just uncheck this box if you want to have the auto-formatting take effect.

By selecting your location, other users will be able to search for your gallery by location.
For example, if you select Spain as the location, when other users go to the World Database, and click on Spain, you gallery will appear and others will be able to browse it.

If this option is checked, then image titles will be displayed beneath thumbnails when viewing the gallery.
If it is unchecked, only the thumbnails will be displayed.

If you check the box marked "this gallery can be viewed by anyone", the gallery will be listed in its parent gallery.
If yo uncheck this box, the gallery will not be listed with the contents of its parent gallery, but if anyone goes directly to the gallery URL, they will see the gallery contents normally.
When you make a gallery non-public, any subgalleries it contains are still public until you edit them and explicitly make them non-public as well.

The number of columns in a gallery controls how many columns of thumbnails to display. The default is 4. You can change this value any way you like.

The table width setting controls what percent of the browser window to fill. 100% is the default.
Set it to 0% to push the thumbnails closer together.
*Greater than 100% is not recommended.

This controls the minimum pixels between thumbnails. The default is 20.

Cell padding controls the number of pixels of space around thumbnails. The default is 20.

A gallery can be broken into multiple pages, which is useful if there are many images in one gallery.
