Background

I mentioned in a previous item that I (unsuccessfully) applied to Wix for a position in its marketing team. This item was one of the assignments I was given. I was asked to write the script for a hypothetical tutorial video explaining how to add full-width galleries to a Wix website.

I have retained Wix's name in this document because the assignment refers to specific Wix menu options and workflows.

Best practices for full-width galleries
Text banner: Tips
Bullet list:
  • Horizontal photos work best
  • Upload higher resolution photos
  • Pick attention-grabbing scenes
Full width galleries work best with big, beautiful photos that will look great on your visitor's HD screen. Choose horizontal or landscape oriented photos because they will better fit most screens and don't be afraid to use high resolution images. You don't want your photos to look pixelated if they are supposed to be bold and sharp.
How to implement in Wix Editor

Animation illustrating gallery customization options. Customize your gallery settings with options like auto-play, whether the photos in your gallery will include text and transition effects for when your photos transition within the gallery.
Animation showing gallery being saved and transitioning to the published version. Remember to save your page as you work to preserve your changes. You can also preview your new gallery page to make sure it is just right before you publish it.
