What is a gallery in DaVinci Resolve?

A gallery in DaVinci Resolve is a feature that allows users to store, preview, and apply grades from one shot to another. It is essentially a space where users can save their favorite color grading settings or "looks" for future use. This feature is particularly useful for colorists who want to maintain a consistent look across multiple shots or scenes in a project.

The gallery can store still images, reference images, and grades. Users can also organize these elements into folders for better management. The gallery also allows users to compare different grades side by side, making it easier to choose the best look for a particular shot. Overall, the gallery in DaVinci Resolve is a powerful tool for enhancing workflow efficiency and maintaining consistency in color grading.
