  • In ZENFOLIO, the terms Images and Photos are synonymous ,  Folders and Sub-folders are graphically shown; however, the folders are usually referred to as Groups. For example, Contents is the site root Group (folder). 

    All folders are tiered below Contents. For example Products is a sub-folder of Contents

    Photos (images) are stored in a Gallery.  A Gallery is a group of photos. Note the Gallery icons are not the same as folder icons.

  • We do not use ZENFOLIO categories; but we do name our Galleries to match our old categories.  Currently zenfolio allows only specific names for their categories - we do not use them in zenfolio.

    categories - 5
     
  • Most of the procedures you will perform can be accessed from the main panel.  Zenfolio labels them as Common Tasks.
