Adding photos to your page

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

All you need to do is add our photo gallery to your 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 setting up a new fundraising page

 

After you’ve signed in or registered your details with us, click the ‘create my page’ button. You’ll see a preview of your page where you can add text and widgets – tick the ‘photo gallery’ box at the top of the page to get started.

I’ve already got a fundraising page

 

Sign into your Virgin Money Giving account and click 'Edit page' under My fundaising pages. If you have more than one fundraising page, click the one you'd like to add your photos to.

Click 'Amend fundraiser page' at the top of the screen. You'll see a preview of your page where you can add text and widgets – simply tick the 'photo gallery' box at the top of the page to get started.



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 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.



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.
