Pixieset Gallery Instructions For Portrait Sessions – DRAFT

Pixieset is a wonderful tool that I use to deliver your final edited images to you.  No more waiting on CDs or USB drives!  Once your session is complete, I will send you a link to your own personal online gallery. Your gallery will be online for 1 year, and can be password protected upon request. You can share the images to social media and order prints and other products like canvases directly from the comfort of your own home.

I highly recommend ordering prints directly through the online gallery. All prints ordered through Pixieset are provided by WHCC. WHCC is one of the leading professional print labs in the country, and they ship anywhere in the world.

1) Simply click on View Collection in the email sent to you, or copy and paste the gallery link into your web browser. You will be taken to a welcome page that looks like this. If you requested password protection, you will need to enter your password here and hit enter.

HOW TO CROP YOUR PHOTO

Important! Pixieset sells many print sizes and your photos will not fit every print size. When you order a print, your photo will most likely be cropped to fit the specific size. You will have the chance to adjust the crop before placing the order.

1) Add the item to your shopping cart and click on “View Cart”.
2) If you see crop lines on your image, click on Edit Crop to adjust and save the desired crop
3) After you place your order, I will edit any cropping that has been overlooked before your order goes into production.
