Adding photos to your page

We’ve teamed up with Picasa web albums so you can share your charity’s photos on Virgin Money Giving.

All you need to do is add our photo gallery to your charity’s Virgin Money Giving page and sign up to use Picasa, then you can start adding your photos. Here’s how:


Step 1

Adding a photo gallery

Please pick an option below:

I’m in the process of registering my charity with Virgin Money Giving

 

After you’ve completed the first part of registering and receive a confirmation email from us, sign into your charity’s new Virgin Money Giving account.

You’ll see a checklist of information we need from you – this is the second part of registering and we’ll use the details you give us in the checklist to build your charity’s page.

Click ‘Create page’ on the left at any time to see a preview of how your charity’s page looks so far. Tick the ‘photo gallery’ box at the top of this preview page to get started.

My charity already has a Virgin Money Giving page

 

Sign into your charity’s Virgin Money Giving account and click ‘charity page’ on the left - you’ll see a preview of your charity’s main page. If you’d like to add the photo gallery to this page simply tick the ‘photo gallery’ box at the top of the page to get started.

If your charity has more than one page they will be listed on the left. Please click the one you’d like to add your photos to then tick the ‘photo gallery’ box. Please note you can’t add a photo gallery to the ‘events’ page.



Step 2

Signing up to Picasa

When you first add our photo gallery to your page it will be empty. Click ‘add photos’ underneath your gallery and a box will appear.

Picasa is part of Google so if you’ve used Picasa albums before or have a Google account, you’ll be able to sign in and start adding your photos straight-away - just follow the instructions on screen.



Step 3

Adding your photos

Now you’ve got our photo gallery on your charity’s Virgin Money Giving page and have signed up to Picasa you can start adding your photos. You can only show one Picasa photo album on your page at a time, but you can change albums whenever you like.

Please pick an option below:

I haven’t got any Picasa albums at the moment

 

You can upload new photos and create new albums on Google+. Simply sign into your Google+ account and select 'Photos' from the left dropdown menu. Then select upload photos from the top menu.

Follow the onscreen instructions to upload your new photos. Once you have successfully created your new album it will be available to you to select for your Virgin Money Giving fundraiser page.

I already have some Picasa albums

 

Click ‘add photos’ under the photo gallery on your Virgin Money Giving page. A box will appear – click ‘choose album’.

Sign into Picasa and choose the album you’d like to add from the list. The album you choose needs to be ‘public’ for the photos to show on your fundraising page, for more details see the Picasa guide on album visibility.



Step 4

Updating your photos

Once you’ve got your photos on your Virgin Money Giving page it’s really easy to change albums. Click ‘update my photos’ under your photo gallery then follow the instructions on screen.
