Pixieset Website allows you to create a beautiful online portfolio where you can show your best work and connect with potential clients. Pixieset Client Gallery provides an elegant way to deliver personalized galleries to each client where they can proof, download and purchase their photos.
While these are separate products on the Pixieset platform, you can easily connect galleries so that clients can access them via your Website. In addition, you can use existing photos from your client galleries and upload them directly to your Website.
We also have a Sharing Client Galleries on your Pixieset Website - Video Tutorial to walk you through these available options.

Client Gallery Block
With our integrated client gallery blocks, you can display all your published client galleries as clickable thumbnails on a page of your Pixieset Website. Any privacy measures that you have applied to your client galleries, such as a Collection Password, will still be required when your visitors click on them.
To add a client gallery block to a page, hover over the content area that you'd like to add your block to, and click the green "+" icon that appears.
On the "Add Block" page that appears, click the Links category, scroll down to the client gallery blocks, and select the design that you'd like to add.
Once you have added a client gallery block, your public galleries will be shown as clickable thumbnails within this block. You can customize your client gallery block by clicking directly onto the block to bring up its settings in the left-hand Builder Panel.
Showing or hiding galleries in your Client Gallery Block
You can determine whether a published gallery appears in your Client Gallery Block by managing its Show on Homepage privacy setting. To do this, open the gallery in your Collections page, go to its Privacy Settings page (Settings > Privacy), where you can toggle this Show on Homepage option On or Off. You can read more on privacy options for your Collections here.
Note: If a gallery has the "Show on Homepage" option toggled "Off" in its privacy settings, it will also no longer appear in your Client Gallery Homepage.
Image Link Block
If you prefer to link to a specific client gallery, you can manually set this up with an image link block.
To add an image link block to a page, hover over the content area that you'd like to add your block to, and click the green "+" icon that appears.
On the "Add Block" page that appears, click the Links category, and choose any image link block. If you are looking to link to multiple galleries specifically, you can also consider using an image grid link block.
Once you have added your image link block to your page, click directly onto the block to bring up its settings in the left-hand Builder Panel. Under Image, upload the image that you'd like to use as the link block's image. Then, fill out the other available fields for the image link block, such as Title and Subtitle.
To link the image link block to your published client gallery, simply copy and paste the direct link of the gallery into the URL field. You can easily find a gallery's direct link by viewing the gallery from your Collections page, clicking Share, and selecting ‘Get Direct Link’ in the top right of its Share page.
Connecting your Client Gallery Homepage to your Website's main menu
From your left-hand Builder Panel, click +Add Page > Link.
In the "Create New Link" pop-up that appears, title the Link Name (e.g. Client Gallery Homepage, Client Galleries) and paste in the direct link for your Client Gallery Homepage in the Link URL field.
You can find the direct link of your Client Gallery Homepage by clicking "My Homepage" in the top right corner of your Collections page, and copying the URL for the Homepage when it opens in a new browser tab.
Click Create, and after you publish your Website, the link to your Client Gallery Homepage will appear in your Website's menu.
Uploading Client Gallery photos to content blocks
You can upload specific photos straight from your existing collections to your website content blocks. You can add your own photos to any content block that can display images, such as an image block or slideshow block. By default, these blocks will contain placeholder images, which you can replace by uploading your own photo to the block.
- Click on the applicable content block to reveal the uploader.
- Click Client Gallery to search your collections and select the photo you wish to use.
- Click Upload to use that photo for the content block.
