Master Galleries

Welcome to a whole new world of productivity and brand consistency using Master Galleries.

The best way of explaining it is to use the concept of master and slave from the IT world.

By linking a gallery to a Master Gallery, it will take the template and customization settings of the Master.  Any changes made to the Master will be magically reflected on the Linked Gallery.

So unlike a preset, you don’t have to re-apply it to countless galleries when you want to change a video player’s color, add a logo to an image gallery or change the timing settings of a slideshow or even completely changing the type of template you want to use throughout your website.

Let’s take an example to see how a master template can be helpful.

Let’s say a user’s blog recently underwent slight design changes to build stronger branding and hence the graphic design team decided to use a different template in order to increase brand visibility by adding a player logo, post-roll video ads, and update their call-to-action.

This new branding direction has to be implemented but the problem is that this needs to updated on over 1000 media content.

This simple change can take days to complete, increase cost and time. Also, in the future, if there any changes then it will again increase the cost and time for the user.

This is where the master gallery helps. We’re glad we came up with a smart and quick solution.

Now, all user has to do is to change the settings on his Master Gallery, and it automatically updates all the media content at once!

Just like magic, Cincopa embeds in over thousands of galleries, changing their look and feel instantly.
