4C Galleries

In Wix or Muse, create a page titled “Galleries” which is accessible from Home page navigation.

On it, place examples of every kind of gallery available within that platform. D

emonstrate your exploration of the options for each.

(You may delete this page in coming weeks after it has been assessed).

You may use your own images, if they have been properly resized and prepared.
Here are some low res, royalty free photos to use in experimenting with Wix or Muse galleries:
demo image.zip

Uploading images: jpg, png, gif. Max upload file size is 5MB.

Review of resizing (downsampling) images in Photoshop. (Image>image size).

In Wix I have found that I can upload up to 9 files at once. At 10 files, I get an error message.
This may have more to do with an sum total limit of 5MB than the number of files.

Gallery formatting options.

Lab Time

Use lab time to develop landing/home page.

Lab time can also be used to purchase a premium Wix account or webhosting (for Muse users) with instructor guidance.
