The New redrex Portfolio Gallery gives you the ability to create a web site with multiple pages and galleries all in one single Lightroom export. jQuery is used to display all the content from just from one HTML file, no server side scripts required
The loading of each thumbnail image is managed via an image loader which means only the gallery pages the viewer decides to view are loaded when they click a gallery nav link.
The gallery also has the feature to support up to three pages that can contain HTML content with customisable titles and URLs. Navigation to the pages is done via the top nav bar. You can also add up to two external nav links to the top nav bar, to link to pages on another website such as a blog.
A powerful front-end framework is provided via the bootstrap platform giving you resizeable pages, so your site looks great on a laptop screen, tablet or a mobile phone. The framework also gives web designers and developers a sleek, intuitive base for faster and easier web development.
Theming & Styles
Font Awesome and Bootswatch themes are included and configured to work with bootstrap framework for enhanced styling and web design. You can also customise the themes and choose from a list of image textures to give the gallery a background. Google web Fonts can be applied to websites too. Also included is a thumbnail cropping position feature that lets you have more control over the cropping of the square images.
When you click on a thumbnail on a gallery page a large image will be displayed in a prettyPhoto box (a lightbox clone). This powerful tool allows you to view the galleries images in a slide show and it resizes your images to fit your viewers monitor, but allows this to be overridden if required. The viewer also lets you display text to complement the photo from its meta data.
Fotomoto is a print-on-demand ecommerce widget that integrates into the portfolio gallery website. This option gives you the opportunity to sell and share your images via this service.
