Being able to design a collection and see how it would look in an actual room is critical to offering functional and appealing prints to your clients. This article will walk you through the best way to manage rooms, including uploading images of your client's actual space!
Gallery Designer includes 16 total default rooms and two blank (black or white) backgrounds for use for your designs. These backgrounds provide an array of choices for flexible design for whatever type of event you shot!
Add A Custom Room
You can have your client photograph their own room to use in your design. This is recommended.
To add a custom room, either click "Add Room" and find the .jpg or drop the room image to the front of the image well.
Input Room Measurements
Your client will need to have measured an object in the room that is close to the wall. Drag the black line to the ends of that object, and input the real measurements at the bottom of the screen.
Drag the corners of the box to determine the part of the scene that wall art should appear in. Gallery Designer will attempt to fill this space with images when generating wall layouts.
You're set to start designing your gallery wall! You'll notice that when images have been dragged into the design space, the layout suggestions will keep the images within your designated design space.
Displaying with a projector?
Gallery Designer is ideal for in person sales, and the ability to show the layout with a projection is invaluable. Choosing "Actual Size" when a design is complete will show the finished result on the wall.
Once you are in "Actual Size", we suggest using the calibration tool to ensure that all images are being displayed at the correct ratios. Do this my projecting the orange line onto your wall and inputing the length on the computer.
