«Gallery maker» section.
This is a small tool for automatic gallery creation using design templates and picture content.
Gallerry template file - path to gallery template file. Gallery template should contain macros <!--img#--> and<!--img#t-->;
To cerrectly generate your gallery you
should have <!--img#-->
and <!--img#t--> macros in your gallery
template, where # is a number of a picture, starting from one. During
generation process all <!--img#--> macros will be replaced with paths to
full size pictures, and <!--img#t--> macros - with paths to thumbnails.
Gallerry content path - path to gallery content (pictures);
Output path - a folder to create your gallery in (content will be copied here too);
Gallerry file name - name of a gallery file (default: index.html);
Image folder name - the name of subdirectory which will be created in Output path folder. That's a place where your thumbnails will be generated and content will be copied here too;
Thumbnail settings - thumbnail generation settings.
Resample image by - select a side you want your images resampled by:
Width - by width;
Height - by height;
Resample image to - specify size of selected image side in pixels;
Thumbnail file name suffix - specify suffix of thumbnail names;
Crop output images by other side to make them same size - this setting must be checked if you want all your thumnails to be same size;
|Example:||Let's imagine that we have a "big" gallery containing two pictures: 400x600 and 400x610. We select - Resample by width, 120 pixels. As a result we shall have two thumbnails with 120x180 and 120x183 dimensions respectively. They're same width (120 pixels, as we set), but as the heights of source images were different, our thumbnails aren't same height. To make them same height you should put a tick on "Crop output images by other side to make them same size" and then we shall have two thumbnails with same dimensions (120x180 pixels).|
Available thumbnails (found in content path) - all image files that were found in specified content path, which matched user filters (see Image filters button below). This is a source content to make thumbnails from.
Delete selected - removes selected thumbnail;
Image file filters - filters files to display in available thumbnail list list;
File name filter - list of acceptable file extensions (default: "*.jpg;*.jpeg;*.png;*.gif");
Minimal width - minimal size of a picture by width;
Minimal height - minimal size of a picture by height;
Image effects - this option used to apply graphical filters to thumbnails - sharpen, blur, brightnesses, contrast e.t.c.;
After all adjustments are done you need to do next:
Generate thumbs - to generate thumbnails;
Generate gallery - to generate gallery file;
