@00:30FTP is a protocoll that allows you to host content on a webspace. It gives you direct access to the server you have rented space on.
To host images for gallery skins you could use Sta.sh on dA as well.

I got asked to make a video tutorial about gallery CSS and how to add them. Hopefully this is helpful.

Like the last time no voice, but i added some foot notes.

This example if to the uploading process via FTP, but basically the steps are all the same, even if you use photobucket. There you just do everything within the website and not with additional programms.

LOL...Dear God! I got nothing from that but complete confusion, if I knew any of what was just shown I'd be working as a computer programmer.
I just got premium membership and wanted to change the way my gallery looks, instead of the crappy green.
Guess I'll stick to the crappy green till this gets easier
Bit dissappointed but thanks anyway

It looks confusing, but it's not that bad. It just needs a bit of time and patience.

Is there any skin you want to add to your gallery already? Maybe i can help you a bit, to make it easier for you.

At the top right of every custom gallery folders. But it's now called "Folder Options".

When I click that, it says "Display, Arrange, Icon, CSS"

So I click CSS right?

As this is created by someone else, it's always the best to contact that deviant directly. Especially if there is a bug or something not working right.
They can work on a fix then, so that others don't have the same trouble in the future.

One thing you could check on your own first, would be if all image paths are right and nothing like [link] can be found in the CSS section. If that is there, that is causing the problem and should be an image URL instead.

You need to upload the images for a gallery skin somewhere(photobucket, dA etc). The image can be reached via an unique URL then (the thing that starts with http...). And that URL is need to be added to the gallery code.

@01:40Dear
When finished the background How do I get css code and what is the size of the background that I design Photoshop I know my questions are many but I really learn:heart:
Reply
:iconginkgografix:
ginkgografix Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2012
@01:40The CSS code is a combination of different characteristics. There is a gallery structure guidline in my gallery that tells you the class names that are available.
Bascially you need to add the background property to body and add the image url there. It would look like this then
body(background: url(YOURIMAGEPATH); )

The size of a gallery will depend on the size of the screen and the resolution. So there is not that _one_ size you can always use. If you have a pattern just let it repeat and it will fill the background on its own. If you have one single image it is the best to let it fade into one solid background color you could add additionally via CSS. Then it won't matter how big/small a screen and the resolution is. The code would look like this then:
body{background: url(YOURIMAGEPATH) no-repeat #COLORCODE;}

The bold values need to be replaces.

@01:40CSS code, either from premade templates or one that you write on your own. Still you would need a Premium Membership first, otherwise you can't apply CSS to galleries.
