Photos can be shared on the ACS Network by uploading them onto a specific Photo Album. Albums are a way to group your photos. Individual photos and albums can be tagged, liked, followed, shared, and be commented on.


To Create an Album

As with any other social content, there are two ways to create a Photo Album. Note, that photos must be uploaded to an album.

Click on Create a photo album in the Actions Box or Click on Create in the user bar, then Photo Album in the menu.


Complete the form to create the album.

To Add Photos

If you are not asked to add photos to the album, you can go to the album and add them by selecting "Add Photos" in the Actions box.


You will then be presented with this menu.


Navigating the Album

Once your photo album is created you will see thumbnails of your photos. You can set how many thumbnails appear on a page. You can also delete, edit the caption and tags, and set a particular photo as the cover photo for the album.


Navigating individual photos

If you click on a thumbnail, a larger image appears.


If you select "view original image" a larger image overlays the page. You may close this image by clicking on the X in the upper right hand corner of the image.


Widgets, etc.

If you are a group owner, you can add widgets on the overview page of your group.


These include:

Featured Photos - allows you to show a specified number of photos from a particular photo album.

Recent Photos - allows you to show either recently updated photos or recently updated photo albums within the group.


Whenever a photo is added or an album is created, the album will show up in the Recent Content widget of the group.
