Selecting a Theme for Gallery

  2. Click on the Admin menu and select Appearance.
  3. Click on Theme Choice.

    The current theme choice is Gallery Wind for both the Gallery and Admin sides of the application.  Keep in mind that the theme can cause the Gallery app to vary in width depending on the theme designer.

Currently, the menu only presents the Wide Wind option as an alternate Gallery theme. However, if you look at the download link you will see a list of 28 other themes you can apply.
