Photos and Lightroom - George Purvis Photography

Using with Photos and Lightroom

Overview

You can transfer upto 9 pictures at a time from Photos, Lightroom and similar apps to Wall Gallery Designer Lite with their Share buttons. The transferred pictures are framed and added to a grid centered on a wall in the current scene.

When there is only one wall in a scene, the grid of pictures is added to that wall. When there are two or more walls present in the current scene, but only one wall is selected, the selected wall receives the shared framed pictures. Otherwise, a dialog appears and you choose the wall.

The added frames are in landscape orientation and sized to fit the grid on the wall. Their mat windows aare sized to the standard for the frame window size. The frame and mat are a basic white style unless there are frames already present on the chosen wall. In that case, the frames and mats are in the style of one of the existing framed pictures.

To quickly switch pictures around, a pair of pictures then tap the Swap pair in the Meshing gears menu.
