Images: Adding and organising images

Pictures tell a thousand words. Therefore, all our Responsive Hotel Website templates in the Design Store include large picture sliders to tell your hotel's story. In order to show pictures at optimum size, we have made adding, organising and cropping easier. 

Library versus Galleries
The Content Management System (CMS) allows you to store, crop and place pictures into your Responsive Hotel Website. In the CMS menu, both "Library" and "Galleries" cover pictures.

Library

This menu item can be considered a shoebox of your hotel pictures. This Library is where you initially upload all original pictures on full size. 

Feel free to organise your Library into folders, so you can find your pictures back easily.

Galleries

This menu item is a collection of Galleries. A Gallery is a collection of 1-10 pictures that will appear as a slider or gallery on your website.

Common Galleries are for example; a large homepage gallery, room galleries and package galleries.
