To save your time and allow modifying multiple images at the same time, Photo Gallery plugin provides its Bulk Actions. It allows you to Select All Images, apply these actions to them, and search among the photos added to that particular gallery. These settings can be found at the top of the gallery images.
The plugin lets you make the following changes with Bulk Actions drop-down menu:
- Resize images,
- Recreate thumbnails,
- Rotate left or right,
- Set watermark,
- Reset images,
- Edit info,
- Add tag,
- Publish, Unpublish and Delete images.
To apply one of these actions to your gallery images, select a few items (or all, using Select All Images checkbox), then choose an action from Bulk Actions option. Afterward, click on Apply button.
To resize an image, select Resize option and click Apply. A popup box will appear with the necessary tools. You are able to set new dimensions for the selected images using Resize images to option. It indicates the maximum dimensions of the resized images.
