    You can do this in PhotoShelter too. Start in the Unlisted Galleries tab at http://www.photoshelter.com/mem/images/#/u/

    You create a collection using the 'New Collection' button (the green button top left, which shows a plus sign and a folder icon). Then you can add galleries by selecting the collection and using the 'New Gallery' button, which is the one next to the 'New Collection' button.

    Nick Thanks for sticking with me on this. I made the Gallery and the sub-collections. What I still don't get is what happens next. I have the pictures in Lightroom in the same collections ready to upload. When I right click on Photoshelter in the publish services Photo shelter wants me to set up a new Gallery. I'm totally confused. How do upload these images to right gallery I already established. Thanks

    I understand now - this is where you can synchronise which brings your PhotoShelter folder structure into Lightroom. To do this File > Plug-in Extras > Synchronise with Photoshelter. Once you've done this you should be able to use the Collections this creates in Lightroom to upload your photos back to PhotoShelter.

    Ok, I got it to work and this is far better than the old plugin. Thanks a million. I could not have figured this out without your great help.
    A couple of follow-up questions. I uploaded images and I assume they are jpegs. Can I set this up so it as another format?
    I also have these set up as unlisted on the website. Can I preview what the client will see before I invite them and can I set this so that they can download them if they want?

    Glad you got sorted, Bob! Images can be uploaded as GIFs, PNGs, TIFFs or JPEGs but PhotoShelter generates JPEGs for presentation to the site visitors - this ensures the sites run quickly so you're not downloading a 30MB TIFF when an 80k JPEG would work just as well for the screen resolution. Unless you allow 'original file' in the download permissions, users will only be able to download JPEGs.

    You can preview a gallery even if it's unlisted - click on the link that appears below the gallery name when you view it in http://photoshelter.com/mem/images - once a user logs in they will be able to see the gallery as you do.

    If you have more follow-up questions, I'd recommend creating new topics here on the forum so people with the same issue can find them more easily.
