How do I use the layout engine?


Instead of having templates that are eternal once decided on, layout engines can give a website fresh looks whenever the artist desires.  Let's get started!

Quick Jump

1. Navigate To The Home Page Gallery

  • In this example we are editing the Home Page Gallery.  Click on Edit Portfolio or the Website link in the toolbar on the left.

2. Layout Engine Themes

  • In every gallery there is a Layout Engine Gallery Tool.  This tool floats around the workspace for easy access.
  • To change the gallery layout choose Themes from the tool set.


  • The tool set now presents all the different options to layout the gallery's images. 
  • Once the layout is selected for the gallery click done to save and the back arrow for more options.



3. Layout Engine Adjust Themes

  • Now that a theme is chosen click on Adjust Themes from the main menu of the Layout Engine Gallery Tool.
  • There are a few options here...
    • Dynamic: This option adjusts the layout based on columns.

  • Hit Done when finished to save the changes and the back arrow for more options.




4. Layout Engine Arrange Images/Auto Colorize

  • Then drag and drop images to rearrange them in the gallery.  Click Done when finished to save changes.

5. Layout Engine Background Color
