With the advancement of Sunshine Photo Cart to version 3, the Multi-Image Product add-on was one of the most requested features that is now available. This feature lets you provide products like picture boxes or albums where the customer can choose multiple images to include. Let’s explore how this add-on can add value to your client photo galleries:

Types of Products

While the multi-image products add-on can be used however you see fit, here are some common products photographers are using it for:

  • Photo albums: Pre-designed albums with set number of photos
  • Photo Boxes: Decorative boxes designed to store and showcase printed photos
  • Customized Calendars: Customers can select their favorite photos for each month
  • Photo Collage Frames: Create a product where customers can choose multiple photos to be displayed together in a stylish frame
  • Personalized Greeting Cards: Offer a set of cards where each one can feature a different selected photo
  • Photo Storybooks: Similar to photo albums but with added text and design elements to tell a story with the selected photos

Limit the Number of Photos Allowed for Selection

You can control how many photos a customer can choose for a multi-image product. For instance, if you’re offering a picture box that holds 10 photos like in the example below, you can set that as the maximum number. This limit will be clearly displayed to the customer, helping them understand how many images they can select for their purchase.

Select Multiple Images for a Single Product

With the multi-image product add-on, your customers can select various images for a single product like those listed above. It’s all done directly from a gallery’s store where customers can select the multi-image product they want and immediately begin picking images to fill it. They’ll be able to access every gallery available to them to select images from through a convenient navigation menu.

Refine Selections Before Checkout

On the cart page, customers have the option to tweak their selections. If they haven’t picked all the available images allowed for that product, a notice will remind them, ensuring they take full advantage of what the product offers.

Admin Controls for Image Selection

As the administrator, you have control over the maximum number of images that can be selected for each product, and you can specify which gallery sources customers are allowed to choose from. This allows you to guide your customers’ choices to align with your offerings.

  • Any gallery – Gives permission to select photos from any gallery the user has permission to view such as public galleries, private galleries they are assigned to, or password protected galleries they have entered the password for
  • Current gallery – Only select photos from the current gallery they are adding this multi-image product from
  • Sibling galleries – Only select photos from the current gallery and any adjacent galleries. For example, if you had a main wedding gallery broken into multiple sub-galleries such as “Ceremony”, “Reception”, “Bridge/Groom”, they could select photos from the any of these sub-galleries regardless of which gallery they are currently adding the product from.
  • Sub galleries – Only allow photo selection from sub-galleries of the current gallery being viewed

Why Multi-Image Products Matter

Offering products that allow multiple image selections provides a more customized and engaging shopping experience. Whether it’s a memory-filled album or a personalized picture box, your customers will appreciate the ability to tailor their purchases to their preferences.

The Multi-Image Product add-on brings creativity and personalization to your photography store, enabling you to offer diverse and appealing products beyond basic prints. By allowing customers to choose multiple images, you’re giving them a hand in creating something special. It not only adds value to the products but also makes the shopping experience more interactive and enjoyable.

This feature is a significant step towards providing a flexible and appealing purchasing experience for your clients. If you want to elevate your online client photo galleries by offering unique and personalized products, the Multi-Image Product add-on in Sunshine Photo Cart 3 is the way to go.
