Image Gallery for Websites V2

Image Gallery is now available for Websites V2 (Websites V2 beta release late March/early April). The Image Gallery is a powerful way to use, manage, and organize images across all races and ticket events. And now, you can share images across Email V2 and Websites V2. Image Gallery adds even more functionality ahead of our Websites V2 beta release in the coming weeks.

Whether you have one peer-to-peer race a year or dozens of races and ticket events, Image Gallery is a powerful tool to manage images across events, Email, and Websites. We have a lot more functionality coming. Image Gallery is WordPress/Squarespace and Mailchimp/Constant Contact combined – but FREE and purpose-built for events.

What Is the Image Gallery in Websites V2?

When you add an image to Websites V2, there are now 3 tabs for you to choose from: Upload, My Image Gallery, and System Images.


The first option when adding an image is to Upload an image from your computer, phone, or tablet. In addition to editing the image with our cropping and rotate tools, there are a number of additional options available:

  • Image Name: This defaults to the name that the image already has. In many cases, this can be something like “Untitled”. You can add an Image Name that will display in My Image Gallery. The Image Name is an internal field that only event directors will see. How does this help? We will add Search capabilities to Image Gallery in the future so that you’ll be able to search based on Image Name.
  • Alt Text: Alt text (alternative text) describes the appearance or function of an image on a page. Alt text is read aloud by screen readers used by visually impaired users. It will also display in place of an image if it fails to load and is indexed by search engine bots to better understand the content of your page (helping with SEO).
  • Album: By default, all uploaded images are saved to the My Images folder for your event. You can also add additional folders to organize images – like Sponsors, Event Photos, Marketing, etc. Albums help you organize images.
  • Image Alignment, Image Sizing, and URL Type: These are existing image features that allow you to align the image and hyperlink to a RunSignup page or a Custom URL.

Once you upload an Image, you can click Edit to update the above fields. It’s also easy to replace images. At this time, we do not allow album management.

My Image Gallery

My Image Gallery includes images that you have already uploaded to either Websites V2 or Email V2. You can choose from any of your existing albums. The best part? It automatically works across all of your RunSignup, GiveSignup, and TicketSignup events that use the same payment account. In the example below, 4 of the races and ticket events associated with a single payment account have uploaded Images to Email V2 and/or Websites V2. It’s easy to choose images from any of the albums, whether you are sending an email or adding content to a website. This enables easy and consistent branding across events and marketing, and less manual work to re-upload the same images.

System Images

Don’t have images that you like for your website? Search our System Images to find one you like! We’ve added several albums of images across a few common GiveSignup event categories. Since images have so much impact for marketing events, we will continue to add more system images.

We are excited to release the beta version of Websites V2 in the coming weeks. Image Gallery makes our initial release even more powerful. Streamline your workflows and brand across your event’s key forms of communication: Email Marketing and Websites. GiveSignup’s Image Gallery is WordPress/Squarespace and Mailchimp/Constant Contact combined – but FREE and purpose-built for events.
