The Quick Guide to setting up an effective HAE Gallery (RECOMMENDED)


Getting the best from joining the HAE only takes a little forethought. The key to it all are 3 simple principles:

1. GROUP YOUR WORK INTO ALBUMS! The way your work will be found through potentially hundreds of images is to make them into an album. The core gallery will be the albums section. The homepage will also rotate albums frequently. I know, you've just finished that 1 new masterpiece and your dyin' to show it off, that's alright. The key to being seen & sold is grouping the work.

2. DESCRIBE YOUR WORK WELL! Standard info that should be in your images' "Description" text field: Title, copyright info, original size (height x width), media, price (if any).

3. ADDING CODE TO THE IMAGE DESCRIPTION FOR WEBSITE LINK /BUY NOW BUTTONS. Your image pages can direct customers to your website and sell your work. Here's one method... If you only want your website link (No Paypal button) skip to "D" section...

( A.) Using your Paypal account, prepare your BUY NOW button, copy the "FOR EMAIL" LINK ONLY. Do not use the "html" for websites code. Reason: There's a character limit in the description field. The emails link is way shorter. Copy, save this link (in any text editor like word, or notepad) and set to the side.

B.) Back to your image page, choose "options" button and click "Edit Details". Go to the description field.

C.) First enter your image information (copyright info, size , media, price, etc).

D.) Copy & paste the following code immediately below your description, and edit the code with your website info and Pay Pal email buy now button link.
Note: Do not alter the bottom line, it is the button image location.
If you want only your website link, simply delete the 2 bottom lines.
