I’d like to integrate E-store into my galleries – see [http://www.jonathon.co/scottish-parliament-holyrood-pre-wedding-photos-garry-and-lynsey/] for an example of a gallery.
I use Justified Image Grid to display my images, when you click on an image it opens in a lightbox (currently via Foobox).
I know how the eStore works when integrated via Nextgen, but I got rid of Nextgen recently due to many issues. My current setup is much faster to load and I wish to keep using a masonry style display.
How do I get estore to have the option to ‘add to cart’ or ‘buy it now’ with my current galleries? Is it possible to have a buy it now option appear on the lightbox? Or on a widget at the side of the page?
I understand that it’s not possible to add a buy it now button onto the masonry part of the gallery (nor would I want to, it would look awful), but is there any other way to integrate your excellent plugin with my current setup?

Hi Jonathon, eStore won’t be able to do exactly what you suggested.
You may want to look at the following plugin for it. We have recently added a gallery template which uses masonry display for the gallery then in the lightbox window, there is an option to purchase the photo.
That plugin handles everything in terms of creating the gallery, showing details of photos, then allowing your customers to purchase the photos.February 28, 2015 at 1:20 pm #68779
Hi, thanks for your reply. This looks promising, though can I ask the following:
1. Does the masonry gallery have options to easily adjust the look of the gallery, for example can I adjust the spacing between images, or arrange images so they align horizontally?
2. Can the gallery use pagination? Some of my galleries have hundreds of images, to speed up loading pagination/add more option is useful to load only 50 (or whatever number I choose) at a time?February 28, 2015 at 11:48 pm #68780

Great, thanks for the reply.
One other thing, I already have about 50k images on my site, all imported as galleries using the WP gallery creation…..
can I use your software to easily import my existing images without the need to upload again?
Many thanks!March 2, 2015 at 12:01 am #68782
Yeah photo seller lets you choose images from your WP Media library. So you won’t need to upload images that are already in your WordPress media library.
