Add photo galleries to your Regis Events

You can easily add photo galleries in Regis for various topics.

First, create a photo gallery and a navigation button that is linked to it. Then, upload your photos and use Regis to resize them and to create thumbnails. Thumbnails are reduced-size versions of pictures used to help in recognizing and organizing them. The resizing and the thumbnails are important to make your photo gallery easy to access and very fast to download.


Photo galleries constitute a very handy means to keep visual memories of events you have organized or attended. Furthermore, on the one hand you can freely add written comments to each of the uploaded pictures. On the other hand, it is quite easy to save or print them after the event.

Moreover, the links directing to your photo galleries are sent by e-mail to all the participants by the event administrator. The participants can also use event photos as high added value elements in their communication actions to their clients and partners.
