Basics - Introduction

Get started with DPG by watching the video below. In less than 15 minutes you'll learn how to organise images and create your first website.


When you create your DPG site, you start by choosing a template. Think of the template as the main structure of your site.

Templates have different layouts, page types and ways to display content, but each one supports images, video and animated gifs.

Our templates work across all devices and look great on anything from mobile browsers to 5k displays.

You can use DPG to create all kinds of sites, from portfolios to password-protected client areas. And because DPG allows you to make multiple websites from one account, you can use the best template for the job each time.


These are our current templates:

The Classic Masonry template is perfect for portfolio sites. Image galleries are laid out in masonry columns and you can use sets or pages to organise your work into different projects.

There are two layout configurations to choose from - Sidebar and Top Bar.

Check out some Classic Masonry demo sites here.

Flexible Side Scroll also allows you to choose between Sidebar and Top Bar layouts. Image galleries scroll horizontally and can be arranged into sets and pages.

Modern Narrative is a super versatile template which can be used to create all kinds of sites, from portfolios to client delivery areas. It features a number of different vertical-scrolling gallery options, the most unique of which is the Photo Story page.

Dedicated Blog is a template made especially for blogs. Six different index views allow you to change the appearance of your blog with just one click. Featured posts highlight key content and post templates let you create varied and engaging layouts for posts.
