Creating a gallery on Darkroom Event Gallery is a simple process. You're able to customize galleries to suit the needs of your brand or for different events. 

Your Galleries

Start from the page where you view your galleries. 
To get back to this page, click 'Galleries' from the top navigation bar in the app.

There are a number of fields you will be asked to add details into in order to create your gallery.

Client Site URL
Add to the end of your URL to form a path to the gallery. Your clients will use this URL to access the gallery, so it may be best using the event name.
