Create an image gallery

1. Organize your images
Click the Browse button in the main window toolbar to open the Arles Image Explorer, a fully integrated image management application.

In the main window select the Source folder where the original images are stored, for which you want to create a gallery (eg C:\Images\Holiday).

The gallery created by Arles consists of several HTML and image files. The Target folder is where all these files will be saved.

4. Generate gallery
Click the All button on the toolbar to generate the gallery.

5. Show created gallery
Click the Show button on the toolbar to show the generated gallery in your browser.
