1. 1.0 - taking a look at enivragallery: Okay, let's get into this course. I think I'm gonna enjoy this one today. I use this quite a lot on one of my which while actually to websites now for no man pictures and no Madonna videos, someone has finally got WordPress galleries, right in terms, off ease of use application. What it achieves just the delivery on it. The add ons. Everything is absolutely perfect, called environs gallery. And if you run WordPress thing, you've been looking for a photo gallery. It's the best one. I've tried two or three. There is lots more than that out. There's probably about seven or eight that are really up there in the top class, but this one's the best. I think I've done a little bit of a screen cast off the installed software and how easy it is to set up a WordPress page with a gallery. I'm gonna show you to real world live examples of using the plug in on my own live websites . No, my daughter Pictures and Noma Doc Video, which I'm excited to get into in 2017 really want to hit the road and start recording some decent video. Some cinema grafs start building up some traffic for that in the intention of getting out business set up in Estonia. And some add on ideas for building course websites fast for 2000 and 17. Gonna be giving you up information today. Let's get into the course. 2. 1.1 - what is enviragallery, what can it do: all right, so it's the best responsive gallery I have found for the WordPress platform. I've tried two or three. The other ones are fairly close to it. But they don't have the additional features, especially wonderful with the A video, which I was surprised that even Environ Gallery have. And so I tried. I've tried to a three. I've tried them from low time perspective from a speed perspective and a finding environmentally. The fastest dragon dropped templates responsive so you can scale it up and down on mobile on phone on iPad. Got some great share buttons has gotten team E commerce feature in their four blue commerce water marking slide shows and video pretty much covers everything that you would need Teoh to do, especially if you're a photographer looking to have your own dedicated site. Basic WordPress installation with environmental ER on their cheap hosting somewhere. Maybe Digital Ocean. You're good to go, so for $49 it will give you the most of all of the features that you want and $99 for everything, including all the video components might sound a lot for a plug in, but if you are a dedicated photographer and you're looking for something stable, reliable, has regular updates and has fantastic support that the best one to go for works with YouTube. Vimeo on DWIs tear. So it's perfect for course. Making is one of the reasons why I got it installed because I'm looking to maybe sell some of our video components next year on nomad dot Video, and I can see that the environs Ellery will be able to drop in just nicely, especially using wood commerce. It's gonna take a bit of tinkering is one. Being easy is just setting up at it as it is for images, but I'm looking forward to getting into that in 2017 on no programming skills required to. You don't have to worry about having a developer. You just install the plug in ad the ad and you want to drop the short code onto a page and you're good to go 3. 1.2 - screencast of gallery: So we're gonna take a look at what I consider to be one of the best plug ins for WordPress for doing galleries from Envirodyne. Ellery. I did a lot of work looking around for different galleries. Tried two or three had one for the longest time, which did what I wanted it to do. But it was a bit slow on loading. Whereas this one from Environ Gallery is a lot better, it's a lot easier to use. Just wanted to bring up their website. Viral gallery dot com has some of the things that it can do. Its got a dragon drop builder gallery templates. It's responsive, so it works everywhere. Albums and tags. Social media integration. You can even do e commerce ALS with commerce integrations of everything you need for you. Still there slideshow on, def. You go for the full version. You can get video support for embed for YouTube Vimeo and wished here, which is pretty bit rare, really, to find one that's ports whist year out of the box. So that's kind of nice. I'm using this on a live site from using it on No, my pictures. So you can see here I'm gonna as a Haiti DPS secure website put images up there all the time. Images were all taken by a lady called Dale at daily on Twitter. What we're looking to build on this in the New Year, as we both upgrade to iPhone seven plus is, I don't actually have a phone at the moment, so that would be a big upgrade for May, but we use it on no man pictures. Well, blowed out images at high resolution if you just click through safe, for instance, on one of these on this whole responsive gallery is embedded from environ Ellery. So it's very easy to do. We use a program to book or blowed images out once they're uploaded. A. You just click it right click a link to download them on. You can see how easy it is just to drop it onto the site. So I wanted to show you a live site, and I want to show you how easy it was on the left side of your WordPress installation. You have a pop that says Environ calorie once you've paid for it because environment gallery costs, I think 49 bucks for the version we're on. We're on silver at 49 bucks. 99 bucks. You will get all the additional things like video force, green breadcrumbs. All these different add on bits elements, But we quite happy on the 49. Although we would like to upgrade for the video stuff, it looks like they got a sale on small attempt sent off the moment as well. Once you've signed up on got your license key driver license key in here and that's all ready to go all sorted. You set some various options here, very simple to install. Also going to show you the Adeline section. So this is how you add on certain bits, the bits that you need. You don't have to have all of the stuff and be bloated. You can just add in different things. So, for instance, I don't have the Dropbox importer at on switched on at the moment, but you can see there's a gallery importer. If you've I used to use next gen, you can customize your gallery to look a certain way. If you're comfortable with CSS is a protection. Add on for protecting the ability to right click and download your images. If you're a photographer or if you want to get paid for your work, you will not kind of stop people doing that. The featured content at on is the one I'm using, which I find absolutely brilliant for setting up galleries. I've got it based on posts, because that's what we do. It create book uploaded pages of pictures on DWI, go in and edit each each poster. This way, I could just aggregate all of those pictures into one page, which works perfectly. Pagination password instagram at on, Which is kind of cool, Aziz. Well, it's a very full featured gallery. Let me go over to the page two. This is what Page looks like a wordpress in how you integrate it. Very, very simple. I've got, um, using a builder here so you can see this is laid out in a different way using the builder. And you can see all I've got in here is my short code for the gallery. Quickly jump over to the gallery. You can see here. The front page one is 35 3457 I've just got least dropped in here. If I click on this block. I just want to show this builder this row. I've got it set to full whipped stretch, so that basically means I get the whole screen and it stretches edge to edge on the website , which I think looks night, and we can also be responsive with it. Weaken sighs the browser to suit, and it will resize the browser window, so I use a builder for that. I had trouble doing it in the interim again it full screen. So use his page builder instead, and you can see it looks like goes away and grabs all our images from the Maxime Amplify straightness winded down. You'll see it just responsively. Size is a really nice, really nice gallery, so jumping quickly to the to the actual short code and show a little bit of detail. There's a little tiny bit of set up, but it's not. That complicated, really is quite easy, so you get to select either a native environs gallery or an external gallery so you can select files from your own computer and upload those, or you can select external gallery and external gallery. I have set up his featured content. Now you'll see here is that if I go into the conflict very simple to step through, I've got it set up for six columns. I've got no sorting on it. I've got the large size for random image sizes, got the image size of random set of golf, grab them. And also this isotope setting, which makes it a layout like it is with the masonry effects. Have you ever heard of masonry, your isotope? They're both CSS Js libraries for organizing goal. Laying out images. Environ Gallery uses that. It's very simple. You just click on these boxes on the left inside to set up all the functions that you need . And once you've set up that short code, then you can just embedded in any page like the embed page that I've got here, and it just displays it just like this. So we've got it set up separate WordPress pages for each one, and then we just sort them based on the post type. So for objects, nature, we just set that one would create the block post very, very simple, very, very powerful. 4. 1.3 - already using on two live websites: have you enjoyed that screen cast of It goes into the features a little bit. If you want me to explain this in more than just leave me a note in the project and I'll get back to you. We use the plug in on to live sites Nomad Doc Pictures, which is a C C zero Creative Commons side. We give away all our images for free so that you can use them on your own block on medium wherever you want to use them on the Web, even in your own commercial projects that they are free for you to use. And we're also going to do the same on nomad videos. We're gonna be doing all kinds of four K clips and cinema graph pretty excited about both those sites in 2017 they're actively both using environ galleries. Well, by the way, no more pictures is full of CC zero images. Like I said, anybody can use these on just by having the traffic on their people, finding those images, sharing them on Twitter. It brings us a little bit of AdSense. Revenue can't live on that revenue, but it does help offset our of the Internet bills. Nomad Video is asked side project for 2017 offering free video and cinema graphs and paid pack work. We're gonna be working on location at various places were also going to come up with themes , packs that we can sell for all those bloggers. All those people are going to be making content for their small business in 2017 That don't have the time to get out there and make that content. We're gonna be offering those packs for you and using gum road to sell. Those items are linking back from the website from those environ galleries through the gun road to be able to purchase it. We're also gonna be experimented with Bitcoin payments as well, using the service called Alexandria I. The galleries make it for me so much easier to create the media so I can spend more time actually creating doing what I'm passionate about, which is getting out there in the world exercising, taking some photos, having that creative balance in my head, to be able to go out and make on easily distribute that on to the website and out into social media. I literally just have to upload the images that Dale creates. It is really easy for us to book, upload images, create some text, do the S E O published your post, and that ultimately appears in the Environs gallery because it's already searching the custom post tag. 5. 1.4 - solid ideas for using standalone: adding support for video, especially with thier, makes it perfect for setting up a standalone course site in 2017 setting up turn styles. So at the beginning of the video, you can ask people for their email address. If you just want to give away that course or a show reel of that course for free, get him interested in signing up to a newsletter. You can even put Coulter actions within the video so you can actually get people to sign up , go to different parts of the video, even promote various social channels that you won't have their also share buttons to share things out over Twitter and Facebook and other places like Pinterest, great for traffic generation and standalone landing pages. You could give access to dedicated pages to other photographers for Dropbox support, dropping in off images. I'm not sure if you can select a folder inside of Dropbox yet. I think you have to just have one setting for everything rather than individual folders. I'm sure if you got in touch with the viral gallery, I suggested to them what you're trying to do. Maybe I'll took help you resolve that or create that in some way upgrade the Dropbox imported to do what you wanted to do. But I was thinking of ideas of maybe offering some dedicated pages two photographers so they can just take photos, drag and drop it on their desktop into Dropbox. There. Dropbox folder, which is connected to your Dropbox account viral gallery, will scan that Dropbox folder and pull those pages into that gallery. That page just for that photographer, and you'll have all the loop, commerce and e commerce things set up. All the photographer has to do is go out and shoot, edit their clips to suit Dragon Drop Inter Dropbox, and they're done selling content, using woo commerce and even sharing that content with the Pinterest pin overlay Adam. That Pinterest overlay add on is pretty cool because you can start to build up an additional audience on a different website on Pinterest by sharing some of those pictures from your account onto Pinterest and indirectly, you could get awareness and traffic through that method 6. 1.5 - take part in the project: All right, then. Five step project. Go to your project in the bar below. Put an awesome project title in the project. Works based. Be creative. Include pictures and the steps that you took. I would really love to know if you already have a photo or video website. Is it open source DIY gifts The way, or do you charge for the content that you make? Pick a sweet cover image. If you don't have one, go over to nomad dot pictures and grab one click on the save button and you're done. 7. 1.6 - the roundup: so the round of then, if you've ever wanted to share some of your photos so they don't just stay in your photo real on your camera and videos, maybe with the world and this is one way off doing it. We wanted an easy way. I've just been out to upload those pictures after the edited to a website, then being displayed in a page without having to individually create galleries. And this is just the easy way of doing it. Managing WordPress installations is easy as well, with using something like managed to be a piece of your bit worried as I mentioned, you don't need a developer to install the plugging them wrong galleries. If you're a bit worried about having a WordPress installation, you can use something like manage WP dot com, which is a control manager for your WordPress installation, which helps you take care of your website. You don't have to log into WordPress and be confused or overwhelmed by everything to really good checker. Check through your pregnancy. If Europe Today just a one click button things really good. Just load up daily and check for updates and you're good to go viral gallery has made the process for me off bloating and editing and s e o so much easier because I don't have to necessarily be concerned about if the images of displaying on the page as long as they're tagged on there in the right categories, then they will appear on the right pages. Edit and distribution. It has been so much easier because off this plug in as a medium maker, how this course has some value.
