How to Create a Gallery - guide

How to create a gallery

 You can easily create a media gallery for your web site using Cincopa in just a few easy steps.

A media gallery is simply a collection of media files, such as images, video, audio or podcast files.

With Cincopa, you can personalize these galleries using different skins (styles) from Cincopa skins gallery. You can select a skin according to the media you are

displaying and the style of your web site.

Please visit Cincopa skins gallery page to see the available skins. After uploading your files you will be able to preview the gallery and easily change the skin to

adjust the look which you would like to get.

Gallery styles vary from classic to flamboyant for different types of media, and give you a number of choices of how you want individual files to be displayed.
