How to create a gallery.
To create and build galleries of your favourite items, simply click on the + icon next to the item. A widget will appear prompting you to 'Create a new gallery' or add to an existing gallery, as shown here:
In the ‘My profile’ section of your account area, you can edit the names and descriptions of your galleries. In addition, you can choose whether to make your galleries private (visible to you only) or public (visible to other people). You can add as many items as you wish to a gallery, with the first 100 being visible on the website.
When viewing your gallery, you can also reorder how the items appear in your gallery by interacting with the ‘arrows’ icon, which enables you to drag and drop the items in the preferred order.
