How does design work?
A design in PhotoDeck is only concerned with the overall layout and the style of your website. Designs are like "skins", the same features are always available regardless of your design.
Within any design, it is also possible to greatly customize the way the images and galleries are displayed (via the Gallery Styles), what is shown on the front page when a visitor comes to your site, etc...
The Desktop/Tablet Website and Mobile Website panels
This is where you choose and customize the overall "skin" for your website, both for the desktop/tablet and for the mobile versions. What is done on this panel applies to all pages of your website.
This is where you customize the items that form the layout of your website: logo, menus, colors, fonts, ...
The Theme Settings and Theme Styles tabs allow you to easily customize your theme. The Advanced tab gives you tremendous control over the design and is mainly meant for advanced users willing to go deep into their design customization.
Preview - Commit - Revert
You can preview a work-in-progress design via the Preview button, without it affecting your live website. If you are unhappy with the changes you have made, hit the Revert button to reset the work-in-progress design to what you have on the live website.
Click on Commit & apply to live website once you are happy with the changes. After that point, there is no going back to a previous design.
Gallery Display Styles
The gallery Display Styles allow you to customize how images are displayed, based on the purpose of the gallery they are in. Please refer to the section on Gallery Display Styles for further help.
