How to offer free downloads

Adding a Free Download for everyone to download for free

In Photo Products -> Product Base, there is a Free Download product (this is not added to the sample price list by default).

You will need to add that free download product to a price list and assign that price list to the page / gallery you want to offer free downloads in. That price list can have other products in it or just the free download. 

When the free download is added to the price list, it won't show with other product but will show as a download icon.

Assign a Customer or Customers To Download For Free On A Per Gallery Basis

  • View the gallery in the admin and click the Photos tab for the gallery.
  • Click the Free Downloads button.
  • There you can select the customer and the free download product.
  • If you only want them to download from a specific sub gallery, view the sub gallery first, then click the Free Downloads button.
