How to add images to the gallery

There are three ways to add the images to the gallery in Extreme Thumbnail Generator. You can see all images that currently added to the gallery on the first step of gallery creation - Images.

Add images to the web photo gallery

Add individual images

To select individual images to be added to the gallery you can click the Add individual images button (keyboard shortcut Ctrl + I, menu command Images - Add images -> Add individual images...). This button opens a standard dialog which lets you browse your computer to find the images you want.

Add all images from the selected folder

If you want to add all images from a selected folder automatically - click the Add all images from folder button (keyboard shortcut Ctrl + F, menu command Images - Add images -> Add all images from folder...). You will see the dialog where you can browse your computer to find the folder you want. After the folder is selected and you click OK, the program will search the selected folder for images in all supported input formats and add them to the gallery.

Drag-and-drop images

Another way to add images is to drag-and-drop image files from Windows Explorer. You just have to drop them right into the image list. Please note, that you can drop both image files and folders. If you drop a folder, Extreme Thumbnail Generator will try to find all images in this folder and add them.
