AcuWeb™Gallery

This tutorial we'll get you acquainted with the features of Acuweb™Gallery -- one of ten browser-based apps in our fifth generation suite of tools that make it easier than ever for you to easily set up and manage photo galleries and slide-shows on your site, without the need for any prior web-tech knowledge.

Acuweb™Gallery allows you to set up an image viewer on your site in one of two ways -- either by specifying it as a sequential "slide show" or as an interactive photo gallery. The process to loading and managing your gallery images, however, is the same, regardless of the final output method.

As you can see in this example of an actual, published gallery, images are displayed as small thumbnails, each of which can be clicked . . .

…to see an enlargement. Notice that your site visitor can then use the left and right arrows to navigate through all the images in the gallery, or close the gallery by clicking the 'x' in the lower right.


Edit Gallery

From the Acuweb™Gallery administrative area, clicking on the Gallery item in the main Acuweb navigation will show you a list of all existing galleries, along with a button at the top that gives you the option of creating a new gallery.

Clicking the 'edit' button will allow you to manage the set-up and performance of each gallery...

First, the Gallery panel asks you to define the type of gallery you wish to create, and give it a name. You'll also have the option of displaying the name of the gallery, immediately above it, on the published web page.

Depending on the type of gallery you select, the appropriate set of control parameters will then be displayed below.

For this example, we've chosen the 'slideshow' option, as it has more control parameters than does a photo gallery.

Most parameters are self explanatory; they let you manage which controls might be visible to the user; the speed at which the slideshow plays; and whether the user can pause the slideshow.

Further down the panel, you can also specify what kind of transition you'd like between each "slide", and how fast you'd like that transition to occur. You can also have the ability to open a slide in an embedded gallery in a new window or in a fancy pop-up window or add a link to make your slide a clickable link.

File Upload

Next, the images/slides panel allows you to upload, sort and caption your images; the "upload new images" button at the top opens an upload window . . .

…just like the one you'll be accustomed to seeing in updater, eflyer and other Acuweb apps.

Clicking the "add images from your file library" button opens an image selector …

...not unlike the one you may have seen in the eflyer overview -- where you simply click the "add to gallery" button to use that image in your slideshow.


Once your images have been placed and sorted, and your gallery saved, it can then be embedded in any page of your website by choosing the gallery from the dropdown list in the content editor panel in Acuweb updater.

This will insert a placeholder, or "proxy" for your gallery, in your updater story; and when your site is published, the finished gallery will appear in that location on your site.
