Your PASS Gallery {Why it's so amazing and how to use it}

After your session with Catie Todd Photography you will receive a link to an online PASS gallery. Here is why PASS is so amazing and why I love it for my clients!

1. Images are easily DOWNLOADED and VIEWED from all your devices!
2. Images are easily SHARED with all your friends and family!
3. Images are easily FAVORITED and ORDERED!

So here's how it works.

OPENING YOUR GALLERY

To open your gallery you simply click on the "View Photos" button in the email or Facebook message you received it in which will open it in an internet browser.

When your gallery opens you should see something like this…..

LOGIN

The very next thing you need to do is Login! In the top left hand corner you will see the MENU button. CLICK IT! This will open a MENU bar on the left hand side where you will see the "LOGIN" button! Go for it!

You can login by creating an account with your Facebook account or your email address. If you don't login you might not have access to all of your photos and you also will not be able to download your images! If you have logged in successfully you will see your name under "ACCOUNT". Please contact me if you have trouble with this and I would be happy to help!

VIEWING

The images that you see when you first open your gallery are only your first collection (this only applies to weddings). Just click on the MENU bar again in the left hand corner and you will be able to see the rest of your galleries under the COLLECTIONS bar. Just click on the desired collection and it will open that gallery. 

If you would like to view your images one at a time, just click on the image and it will expand to fill the screen. You can use your arrow keys on your keyboard or use the grey arrow on the right hand side to scroll through your images in this larger format. To get back to your full gallery just click on the "BACK" button at the top of left hand side! 


SHARING YOUR IMAGES AND FAVORITES

Once you have logged in and you are viewing your images, you can mark your favorites with a heart to create your own collection or to share on your favorite social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. When you click on an image and it expands you will see a new menu at the top of the screen. 

Want to share a certain image to Facebook? Just click on the "FACEBOOK" button and it's done! The image will post straight to your wall!

 

To add an image to your favorites, just click on the "FAVORITE" button on the top menu once you have opened an image! 

   

 

 

You can access your favorites by clicking on the MENU button on the left hand side and clicking on "MY FAVORITES"

DOWNLOADING

When you are ready to download your images, it is extremely easy! You can download individual images by clicking on the image you want, then clicking the "DOWNLOAD" button.

Wedding clients have the option to download their images one at a time or to download them all at once.  You can select which galleries you would like to download. 

Once you select which galleries you would like to download and click "START DOWNLOAD" you will see that your images are being packaged and prepared for download. You can stay on the screen and wait or you will receive an email once they are ready!

If you choose to wait, eventually you will see a DOWNLOAD button which will allow you to save the images to your computer. You will then just have to open the .zip file and extract the images.

ORDERING PRINTS

Ordering high quality, archival, prints is super easy and affordable with PASS! When you have clicked on the image you want and opened it you then simply click the "ADD TO CART" button.

You will then see your print options. PASS offers a variety of options to meet your needs. You can order prints, canvases, and photo cards! If you need larger sizes please contact me at catie@catietoddphotography.com 

I will also mention that I HIGHLY reccomend ordering prints directly through PASS. PASS prints are affordable and professional quality. Why get professional photos done only to ruin the quality? Places such as Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, etc. ruin not only the quality but the color of your photos! If you absolutely don't want to order prints through PASS the other place I would reccomend is Mpix.com

After adding items to your cart another bar will pop up under the top menu bar that says "VIEW CART" and it will also let you know your total!

From there you can click the "VIEW CART" button and view your items and CHECKOUT! The check out process is pretty self explanatory and easy. Enter all your shipping and payment information and your prints will arrive at your doorstep! 

SMARTPHONE/TABLET APP

This is by far one of the coolest features of all! To view your gallery from your smart phone or tablet open your PASS link in your browser on the your phone or tablet. You can add this link to your homepage on your phone or tablet OR you can download the PASS app! This way you can show off your photos no matter where you are with any device!

You can go to the APP store and download the APP straight to your phone or tablet. Just type in PASS in the APP store. You just use the same information to login and you should see a screen with your gallery. You can view your collections and download your images to your phone or tablet! It will save your image straight to your camera roll with all your other photos! How cool right?! 

If you want to be real fancy you can even order prints from your phone! Woah!

And there you have it! Your super cool, amazing PASS gallery!
