NextGEN Gallery

Project: NextGEN Gallery Print Labs

The purpose of this project is to create two new videos that will educate photographers on how to configure and maximize the benefits of the new Labs integration for NextGEN Gallery. In total, we will produce two videos. The first video will provide a brief, high-level overview of how to start using the Labs integration. The second video will provide a detailed, step-by-step run-through of the set-up process to begin selling prints with automatic lab fulfillment.

These videos should:

  1. Introduce first-time users to the Labs integration,
  2. Clearly articulate the problem Labs addresses,
  3. Provide a concise overview of how to configure this new functionality,
  4. Encourage viewers to start using the Labs features, and
  5. Clock in at less than 3:00 for the overview video and 5:00 for the second video.

Scope of work:

This project includes the creation of two (2) videos described below. Erick has acknowledged that the subject matter may necessitate the creation of additional videos. That determination will be made during the scriptwriting phase for the second video. If additional videos are required, those videos will be produced under a separate proposal as a new project.

  • Selling Photos with NextGEN Gallery: Overview — An overview video, 3 minutes or less, to provide a brief, high-level overview of how to begin using the Labs integration. Should quickly demonstrate the goal (create galleries where customers can purchase fulfilled prints) and provide a ‘drive-by’ of the steps a person needs to follow to get there.
  • Selling Photos with NextGEN Gallery: Complete Setup – 5 minutes or less, to cover the checklist, wizard, and full setup:
    • General Options
    • Payment Gateway
    • Lab Integration
    • Gallery Option
    • Creating a Pricelist
    • Adding a Gallery
  • In addition to these two new videos, we’ve also included time to update the existing ‘NextGEN Gallery Overview’ video so that we can demonstrate the plugin’s use inside the new Gutenberg editor.
