Small: Used for some previews and some displays Suggested: 600 x 600

Thumbnail:  Suggested: 200 x 200

Mini previews: Suggested: 50

Resize Quality

When you upload photos the photos get resized and optionally watermarked. Here you can set the quality of that resize.The higher the number the higher the quality ... but also the higher the file size which will take longer to load. The default setting is 85.

Thumbnails Per Page

The thumbnails automatically populate as you scroll down the page, but after a while it can slow things download if there are a lot of photos in a gallery. Here you can limit how many total populate.

Download Zip File Limit

This will set the number of photos to put in a zip file when someone purchased multiple downloads on an order. When there are more photos than the limit, it will create multiple zip files to download. This is done because too many photos in one zip file can cause server errors.

With this option selected, when someone searches for photos, it will not search in the file name of the photo and only search key words on the front end.

FTP Upload Process Settings
