  1. Site URL: https://www.danielchristiansz.com Hello, I would like to prevent gallery cropping in squarespace 7.1. The only way I can achieve this is either by having a stacked, one column blog post, or, using portfolio pages. Is there custom CSS that I can use for this purpose? I have Googled extensively but I haven't yet got the code I have found to work. Thanks.
  2. Site URL: https://hen-sphere-pxk8.squarespace.com/config/pages The website is still in development so I'm not sure what URL to populate this with. It is a photographers website and they want an infinite image page (made from of ALL individual images, not a gallery), i'm looking for ways to help with the page load time please. I was thinking a load more button which appears after every few scrolls, or a plug in that can help with the image heavy page. I'm really stuck.
  3. Site URL: https://www.malcolmdavis.net/ Hi, I am just putting the finishing touches on my photography site. I am mainly looking for comments on the presentation and flow of the work. I am trying show consistency in the content without being too redundant. This is for both the portfolio and the projects. Design tips are also welcome. I am trying to figure out how to make the lightbox in the projects folders be non transparent if anyone knows what code to use? Thanks in advanced. Hope you enjoy looking at the work!
  4. Site URL: https://willsofwells.squarespace.com/gallery Long story short, we upload photographs on our website from local events and adventures, to basically promote our coffee shop and try to sell prints. A few days ago, our galleries looked fine. Sharp and crisp, no matter what size they made to be when viewing. But I send a link out today on the local Facebook page, to get interest from locals... go on the gallery, and to my horror the photos are horrendous! I tried fixes like clearing cache (friends with other devices also say the photos are blurry) and a chunk of photos I have made more SEO friendly by making them under 500kb and a max of 2500 pixels. But nothing, they still look horrible. The lady on the webchat continued to tell me she couldn't see anything wrong with what I was showing her, including my screenshots of what I was seeing. If it's the size of my images that's causing the problem.. then 1. Why do the resized and optimised photographs look terrible? and 2. Why do photographs from over a year ago, which looked beautiful online a few weeks ago, look like dog poop today? Is anyone else experiencing this issue of photographs looking like they have been uploaded to Facebook?!
  5. Site URL: http://www.thomcorbishley.com Hello, Throughout my photography website, I'd like every gallery to be displayed without any navigation buttons on the side of the gallery and the ability to navigate through the gallery, simply by clicking on the image currently being displayed. Ideally, with the ability to navigate backwards and forwards depending on where on the image one clicks. Furthermore, I'd like to this to be accompanied with the ability to navigate using the arrow keys of a keyboard. I used this style entirely on Squarespace before I upgraded to 7.1 a couple of years ago and is fairly common a lot of websites. Is there any way of achieving this effect? Thanks in advance, Thom
  6. What are your thoughts on using stock photos for your site? Specifically, are Unsplash images too recognizable?
  7. Hi i want to sell photography prints directly from my Squarespace site. I have seen that there is the Printique extension which looks perfect but this is only available in North America. Are there any options to do this in the U.K.? That will integrate seamlessly with Squarespace? thanks
  8. Site URL: https://falcon-avocado-k4w3.squarespace.com/ Hello! I'm working on setting up a photography print shop site. Currently using the Palmera template. I want to be able to add a second line of text (subtitle with artist name) under each item, both in the grid and the product detail pages if possible. It should look like the attached images. Ideally should also be able to lightly style this line of text, so it's smaller and a different color/opacity than the title. Any ideas? Thanks so much in advance!
  9. As Squarespace adds new features each year the 'Marketing' sections seems to be getting closer to offering full CRM (Customer Relationship Management) features. I've been using a mix of Quickbooks and Gmail alongside Email Campaigns to keep in touch and monitor my clients but find it frustrating! I offer Photography and Squarespace design services plus educational work across workshops/webinars and 1-2-2 tutorials. I really want a simple, easy to use, minimal CRM that offers stats and data visualisation, especially on the sectors my clients work in. For example, I shoot product/lifestyle for mostly designer/makers. I know my main 2 product types are ceramics and textiles, but the only way to be sure of the exact numbers is to export a spreadsheet from Quickbooks and add the data myself.. Quickbooks does not offer the option for adding extra contact information like 'sector' or 'type' of client. In Squarespace, I see it's possible to add a 'tag' to a customer in Profiles, but there is no option to see charts/visualisations for customers.. Analytics has data for sales, emails and so on.. Trying Hubspot but find it has way to many options and I get lost in settings.. most CRMs seem very complicated.. I'm actually thinking a google spreadsheet that synced to Quickbooks would be better as you can export / create data from that. Thoughts? Is anyone having success with a CRM that syncs with Quickbooks? I mainly use Quickbooks because it syncs with HMRC in UK for submitting VAT returns. Sprout Studio is an interesting one but only for US and Canada at the moment.
  10. I need to show a lot of before and afters on my 7.0 website. I can do this easily with slideshow. However, its making some of my pages load very slow on mobile devices, even after optimizing images. So is there a way I can use Pinterest or similar to store my photos, but use a code to somehow create a slideshow of before after images? I want the images to have a 2 second auto transition between slides, or arrows at the side to click through. Ideally I don't want to use I-Frame as I find it doesnt always look right on various mobile devices.
  11. Site URL: https://www.alxhtchr.com/vault-2 I've created a portfolio grid gallery and worked the code so that it has 1 column without left or right padding; however, I've been trying for hours to find code that will allow the row to be cropped vertically to 50% of the page (if I were to have 2 rows and header hidden you could see their entirety). I want the aspect ratio to be variable so that as the browser window size changes, so does the crop on the photo to remain at 50% of the vertical height. The code I attached in the image has not successfully worked in limiting the row height. I'm looking to imitate this page https://www.shortstache.com/professional Here is my page https://www.alxhtchr.com/vault-2 Would appreciate any help I can get, thanks!
  12. Site URL: https://www.nicgaunt.com/ Hello. does anyone know how to make imahes pinch zoom on light box gallery. This would be useful to look at images closely on a mobile.
  13. CSS How to reduce top padding on portfolio gallery (grid:simple) page so that it touches the top?
  14. Site URL: http://www.johnpjacob.com Over the last year I have a renewed passion for photography, and wanted to display some of my initial photos. I’ve had a few people reach out before I created this page to buy prints, so my goal is to create a simple and clean online presence. I am very early on in the process but would appreciate any feedback. I consider myself an enthusiast photographer, but want to work on improving my skills and online presence.
  15. Site URL: http://www.oxbowphoto.com Hi all, I am trying to figure out if there is a way to add EXIF data automatically to photos (i.e., Camera, Lens, Shutter Speed, Aperture). Has anyone figured out a solution for this?
  16. Site URL: https://www.derujinsky.com/ Hello! I want to increase the width between the thumbnails on my gallery pages to allow for my images to have a little more room to breathe. How should I go about doing this? Right now I do not have any custom CSS.
  17. I'm attempting to set up a website to sell digital prints of my photography. However, I'm finding that Squarespace's ecommerce options don't provide me with what I need (I think). Ideally, I would like visitors to be able to add photos to their cart directly from my Gallery Page. Attachment 01 is a snip I took from another website that I came across that is similar to what I'd like to incorporate into my website. As of now, I would have to number each picture in the Gallery Page (Attachment 02), and then add corresponding numbers to each digital product on my Store Page (Attachment 03). This is far from ideal. Also, when I add each photo as a product on the Store Page, the product page does a weird crop of the photos, so the user can't even see the full image that they are purchasing. I'm looking for any kind of help - anyone have similar issues? Workarounds? Another option that I'm not considering? Any help at all. Thanks.
  18. Site URL: https://formatframing.com.au/products/online-print-and-frame Hi, just wondering if anyone knows about a plugin or third party application which enables customers to upload their own image to be printed and see what it looks like with a frame around it. I have included a website that already has this function and I am interested how I can do it? thanks 🙂
  19. Site URL: https://www.diegorosman.com/ hello, there is a way to change the image size for bigger \ full index in the slideshow gallery home page www.diegorosman.com
  20. Site URL: https://www.craig-reynolds.com/ Hi everyone! I was wondering how to make this effect of the images appearing as I move the mouse through the screen? https://www.craig-reynolds.com/ Thank you!!
  21. Site URL: https://www.noahriffephoto.com/news I am looking for some help to change the image description styles on a gallery page. Currently they are on the right side of the images overlapping on the images in a box. They end up covering parts of images that I would like to show. I would love to have them not overlap the image and either have them smaller on the right side or under the images. Most importantly I would just really like them to not overlap the image. Thanks!
  22. I have searched through posts made by other photographers as far back as 2013. How is Squarespace not adding this feature to help and support photographers like myself. We are coming in to 2020 and as far as Im aware Squarespace still doesn't offer this feature! I am a wedding , Events photographer & videographer and more.. A client gallery which my clients can view & select their photo's. Its a must for us full time photographers and yet we don't have this feature ! C'mon Squarespace, sort it out ! Photographers choose Squarespace for it's professional layouts, easy to manage, but surely if photographers have to go to third party companies for this feature, your losing customers and that's bad for business. As a business, we need to keep traffic on our website, not direct them to another site and you don't need me to tell you that. Can we please have this feature, Client Proofing is an essential feature for photographers. I'm stunned to find that you don't have it since you claim to be the best website for photographers. It's a basic feature, yet we don't have it ? Okay, rant over. Maybe it can be a New Year feature ! Work with us Squarespace, we are your customers, your lifeline. Client Proofing & Client Selective Downloads Please ! Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Mark Mark Standish Photography Ltd
  23. Hey, I just got a message from a client ( a photographer) "....I thought was odd because I limited EVERY file to less tham 740kb at 3000px..This file was showing as 2500px and was saying it was 1.5mb So then I recompressed it and made it 2500px sent it through tiny JPG and got it to 442kb..I uploaded it to Squarespace and now its showing as 666kb…SO squarespace in resizing my images has made them ALL larger which is making the site fail speed test which is certainly going to effect my performance. " That sounded strange so I ran another test myself (screenshot attached) 1) example File I received 2500x2500 with 1.5MB and after compression 442KB 2) Double-checking the compression on tinyjpg.com and Photoshop Webexport 3) I uploaded the file to Squarespace and right-click downloaded it agin and the file was 666kb Seeme the difference can be even bigger. I'm very concerned. thanks for yor help. PS: What do you think @paul2009 or @tuanphan I know Google Page Speed and Squarespace are not best friends but what't the best pratice here?
  24. Hey guys, I'm setting up a website to showcase and sell photography. I'm using squarespace 7.1. My issue is that I want my product images to be their default ratio/sizing on their individual product pages. However, each photo is getting cropped in some way. I'm also finding that if I set one photo to vertical then it changes every single other photo to vertical! I just want to be able to display the prints as their correct ratio without being cropped. Appreciate any help.
  25. Is there a way to search imported images? If not, that would be a FANTASTIC feature to add
