How to organise photo albums on your Breedpost litter pages

I only had two litters when I was showing dogs and that was enough for me. It’s certainly not easy work and I found it really difficult, yes irrationally, to part with the pups.

Here are some ideas about how I may organise my puppy albums on a litter page but I’m sure more experienced breeders have other ideas. Shoot me an email if you do, so I can share it on the blog.

Creating and publishing multiple albums on a litter page

Creating multiple albums on each litter page enables you to organise photos into groups, making it easier for visitors to browse and find what they’re looking for.

Each album may have a unique title and unlimited images, all with unique captions.

This functionality was originally developed so you could display puppy photos taken over periods of time, but there are other ways it could be used.

Organising your albums by time periods or date

You could create an album on the day the litter is born and title it - Day 1, fill it up with photos (if you’ve got time!). Then you would continue to publish photos over more time periods into separate albums which could be named something like the following.

  • 1 Day
  • 1 Week
  • 2 Weeks
  • 3 Weeks
  • etc

Some people may like to use a date as the title instead. That’s probably ok but it won’t mean that much to visitors really unless they work out the pups’ ages from their date of birth.

Make sure to name the pups in the image captions.

Organising your albums by pup

You could also organise your albums by pup and use the image captions to display their age at that particular time.

You should order the images in each album by their age from youngest to oldest or oldest to youngest but be consistent in each album.

  • Red girl
    • Image(s) at 1 day
    • Image(s) at 1 week
    • etc
  • Blue boy
    • Image(s) at 1 day
    • Image(s) at 1 week
    • etc
  • Green boy
    • Image(s) at 1 day
    • Image(s) at 1 week
    • etc
  • Yellow girl
    • Image(s) at 1 day
    • Image(s) at 1 week
    • etc

Make sure to add the pups’ ages in the captions and any other information required in the context of the image being placed in that album.

Other albums that could be added to your litter pages

You could provide your visitors with some background information about the litter by creating albums containing the following.

  • Sire photos
  • Dam photos
  • Photos of pups from other litters by the dam and/or sire
  • Photos of adult dogs from other litters by the dam and/or sire

Because it’s so easy to take photos nowadays, web space is cheap and internet connections are fast, you should take advantage of that and provide your prospective puppy buyers with as many photos as possible.
