How to download your Pixieset Gallery
Yaaaaay!!! You’ve received an email that tells you your gallery of images is ready for download. Now what!? How do you download the images? Here is a step by step tutorial on how to do just that!
Step 1: Open the email I sent you, and it will look like this (If the gallery has a password for entry that will also be on the email)
Step 2: Click on the green button that says “View Photos”
Step 3: If an entry password is needed a new black screen will open requesting the password which can be found on the original email. If no password is required the gallery screen will open. Click the open button.
Step 4: Your images will now pop up! If you would like to scroll through them first make sure you give it some time when you reach the bottom of the page, there may be more waiting to load! When you are ready to download your images, click on the “Download Icon” in the top right corner (Looks like a downward arrow with a rectangle below it)
Step 5: A new window will open that asks you for your email and the 4-digit PIN that I provided you with (The pin is also included in the original email). Enter this information here.
Step 6: Next you will get a loading screen. Wait for it to finish loading, make sure that “Highlights” is checked. Once it’s finished then click the “Start download” button. If you accidentally close the window don’t worry, you can always go back to the original email and get the link again!
Step 7: Your download link will now popup! Yay you are almost done! Click the “Link” to download your images. This is the step that many people get confused by, they don’t realize you need to click on the words of the link. (The link is the first circle at the top of the download screen). After you click that a box will popup asking you what you want to do with your images. You can choose to “Save” which will most likely save the images to your downloads folder OR my preferred option, choose to “Save As” and create a folder to save them in.
Step 8: Once your images are finished downloading it will ask you if you would like to “Open”, “Open the folder” or View Downloads”. I like to click on “Open folder” just in case you have forgotten where you chose to download them to. After you open the folder the images need to be “Unzipped” as they are automatically compressed (Zipped) to improve the speed of your download. You will see a folder that has a zipper on it to signify it needs to be unzipped before use.
Step 9: Right click on the zipped folder and find the option “Extract all”. Click on “Extract all” and wait a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the size of your folder. It will create a duplicate folder of the images that are unzipped and ready to be printed, shared and enjoyed for years and years to come!!
