Creating posts on the go is easier than ever with the Patreon app. You can now create image galleries directly on your mobile device.
In this guide we’ll take you through:
- Uploading images for your gallery
- Adding images
- Removing images from your gallery
- Saving an image gallery draft
Note: Image gallery creation is currently only available on the Android version of the ap.
Uploading your images
Step 1: While logged into your account on the Patreon app, tap on the plus sign icon, and select Make a post.
Step 2: Select the image icon to upload images directly from your mobile device.
Step 3: When you select the image icon, you can choose images from your device library, or take a photo with the in-app camera.
You’ll see number badges in the upper right corner of images you select from your device library — images will appear in the order they’re selected. To deselect an image, simply tap on that image again. Once you’ve selected your images, tap Done.
Uploading time can vary based on file size and amount of files.
Step 4: Give your post a title, and say something about your gallery.
Step 5: Tap Next to select your audience, add any relevant tags, and charge patrons for the post (if you ).
Step 6: Once you’re happy with your post, select Publish!
Add more images to your gallery
If you’re adding images one by one, or realized you left an image out of your gallery, you can always add more images later.
Add more images by tapping the plus sign while on the post creator/editor. You’ll be able to select additional images from your device library, or take a photo with the in-app camera. Image galleries can be made with your device’s library files and the in-app camera.
Removing images from your gallery
You can remove an image from your gallery while in the post creator/editor. To remove the image, get to your post editor and tap the “x” in the upper right corner of the image.
Creating a draft
Not quite ready to go live with your image gallery? Not to worry, you can save your post as a draft, and publish it later.
To save your post draft simply tap the back arrow or “x” in the upper left corner until you are prompted with a message asking if you’d like to save your work. Select Save changes to create a draft.
If you select Discard, your post will not be saved as a draft.
