The gallery, or large icons, view lets you quickly review a collection of images stored in a folder. This feature is ideal for architects, designers, photographers, or anyone else who keeps a large collection of images in Egnyte and wants to see a preview of the file.


The gallery view can be selected by clicking the View options icon indicated below and choosing Large icons.


Once you’ve opened the gallery view, hovering over the image reveals some quick options. You can:

  • Preview a larger version of the image by clicking on it.

  • View comments and version history (top, right corner).

  • Select the checkbox (top, left corner) to see the full action menu.


If you want to perform the same action on more than one image, check the box of each image. The action menu will appear on the right side of the screen.
