If you are facing some troubles in managing all your product photo albums, Magento 2 Image Gallery may be a smart solution for you to cope with it. No matter how many photo albums you have, this module can help you organize them by category or tag in minutes.

Grouping albums to relevant categories and tags, both store owners and customers can save time in finding products. To help you tackle the problem, in this article, we’ll show you how to organize photo albums by category & tag using Magento 2 Image Gallery.

I. Why need to organize photo albums by category & tag?

You may be wondering why you need to organize photo albums by category and tag? This question will be clarified in this article.

First, easily increase customer shopping experience. In fact, making customers feel satisfied is the most prior criteria of every store. When you group photo albums to relevant categories and tags, your audience can quickly find their needed products just by some keywords without opening all albums to find.

Second, it not only benefits customers but also brings benefits to you. You are not able to manage hundreds to thousands of product albums, so assigning them to appropriate categories and tags will help you determine where they are in the store clearly.

Finally, organize photo albums by categories and tags may make your store more professional and enhance customer trust. A store with well-organized structure can easily gain customers attention and motivate them to use.
