The cover image for a gallery or collection serves as its preview in both the Image Browser and on your website. There is no cover image set by default, but never fear, if you haven't chosen a cover image for the galleries and collections on your website, PhotoShelter will automatically use the first image in the gallery or collection as a preview for your visitors. When viewing items within your Image Browser, however, you'll need to manually choose a cover image in order to see thumbnail previews.
Setting Your Gallery or Collection's Cover Image
This image will represent your gallery or collection.
Here's how it works
1. Select the gallery or collection from the Left Pane.
2. In the Center Pane, click the image that you want to serve as your cover image and drag it over to the designated area in the Right Pane -> Description. If there's no cover image already set, then you'll see an image placeholder and an arrow showing where the image should be dropped. If you already have a cover image set, you may replace it anytime by dragging another image there.
Note: The cover image of a collection must be the same cover image as one of its galleries. (So, to set the cover image of a collection, you'll actually be dragging a gallery thumbnail to the Right Pane -> Description.)
