  • Each image can be exported to a different gallery if required.
  • You can choose whether to replace an existing image with a new version or add a second version of the same image to a new gallery [2].
  • When replacing an image you can choose to replace just the image, replace the caption and keywords or both.
  • Keywords can be automatically included or excluded from all exported images.

  • You can only upload 50 images at a time.
  • The demo will expire after 30 days.
  • Each image will have smuginproforaperture added as a keyword in the exported image.

    • SmugMug Gallery Identifier and Key
    • SmugMug Gallery Name
    • SmugMug Image URL
    • Upload date
    • Image MD5 Sum (to prevent unnecessary re-upload when replacing images)
