1. Setup your PayPal account
Before using your Paypal Shopping Cart, you will need to setup a Paypal account. If you do not have a paypal account, visit PayPal.com and sign up for an account by clicking on the "New Users" or "Sign Up" links on the homepage. Again, you will just need a valid, working email address to use as your Username and a password for secure access. Finally, you must have a VERIFIED PayPal account before the system will work properly. Your account will say "Verified" on your account page after you have completed this process.
2. Unzip the contents of your template zip file.
Unzip the zip file into a location you will remember. You will need to do some minor editing to get your template files to be ready for use.
3. Customize your template.
You will need to customize the template to include your own photo sizes, cost, and styles. Open the file named SubPage.htm using a text editor such as notepad or wordpad.
A. To modify the photo sizes and prices, locate the comment tag that reads:
<!--EDIT THESE OPTIONS (example shown below. edit value (photo size, @price). Also edit value before the </option> tag. -->
There will be various options already pre-staged that you will need to change to fit your needs. Each option lists a separate photo size and price. For example, if you wanted to make the first available option to read 4 X 5 for a price of $10.00, then change this line:
<option value="4X6 @9.00">4 X 6 ($9.00)</option>
<option value="4X5 @10.00">4 X 5 ($10.00)</option>
Continue modifying each option until your total available photo sizes and prices are represented. If you need to remove an option, delete the line from the <option tag to the ending </option> tag.
B. To modify the photo styles, locate the comment tag that reads:
<!-- EDIT THESE STYLE OPTIONS -->
There are two options already pre-staged that you can modify or add to. Each option lists a separate photo style. The prestaged options are Color and Black and White. You may want to add an option for Sepia. You can change the current styles or add another for Sepia by adding the following option line:
4. Save your template file and place template files in the Adobe Windows directory

- For Adobe Photoshop CS, copy the folder to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop CS\Presets\Web Photo Gallery\
- For Adobe Photoshop CS2, copy the folder to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS2\Presets\Web Photo Gallery
5. Use your Adobe Web Gallery to create your web pages.

Then select your Paypal template, specify output options, and click OK.
