Every KLC fotos Photographer has a dedicated folder on the Photographers Page
This page serves as your your portfolio and your archive.
We suggest you bookmark the back-end link to your Photographer Page for easy reference.
Your photographer page can be found publicly at KLCfotos.com/photographers/yourname using the name you provided on the info form, if you would like a different name for your link, let us know!
When you first access your photographer folder you'll find a headshot gallery, a Non-KLC fotos portfolio gallery and a portfolio collection
This hidden gallery is where you should upload your headshot and then select that image to be the cover of your photographer folder
*HOW TO: Set/Change a Cover Photo
This is a hidden gallery where you should upload your favorite images that are not to be licensed by KLC fotos (example if you worked for another agency and have copyright to display but not to sell).
You can then add these images to your portfolio collection.
*HOW TO: Add images to a Collection
*Note this gallery is not watermarked so if you would like a watermark on these images please upload an image with a watermark already present.
This is linked to the slideshow that appears on your photographer page. As you add images to the KLC fotos archive, you should add additional images and update as frequently as you see fit.
You may find additional folders and/or galleries if you are assigned an event or we know you already have images to be sharing with KLC fotos. You can find more info about appropriately adding galleries via the upload protocol
You are welcome to create additional collections
Example: Portfolio for sports, portfolio for weddings, a collection of favorites for a client etc so you have quick links to send
You may choose to password protect or make private certain collection. Password protecting, you can set your own password to allow clients to view. Making private makes the images private on the front end but remember anyone with a KLC fotos back-end log in will be able to see your images if they go to your folder on the back-end. Also remember that if an image requires a password in your gallery, it will also require a password in any collection you add it to in the archive.
*HOW TO: Password Protect a Folder/Gallery/Collection
There may be some galleries you want to be able to access or want others to be able to access via link but not have publicly visible/clickable within your photographer folder, you should then opt to "Hide from Visitors"
*HOW TO: Hide Folders/Galleries
Perhaps you don't need to password protect the gallery, or hide the gallery, but you don't want someone to see that you only just added photos from an event 6 months ago. You should disable adding it to the recently added section of KLC fotos. You could also make an image searchable only via KLC fotos (not all of google, interwebs) or not searchable at all.
*HOW TO: Manage Search Options
You may choose to make a download password protected or entirely open. If this option is enable we can track the number of times and image has been downloaded but not who or under what terms the image has been downloaded. Depending on the images in the gallery, we might encourage you to make the images available via a no-cost download order instead of an open download.
*HOW TO: Set Download Options
Only a KLC fotos administrator can set a price on a folder or gallery. If you have a division of images that you want a pricing list applied to, notify a KLC fotos admin and they will set it for you so that everything uploaded into that folder automatically has the appropriate price list applied.
