Thread: Advice on Photo Galleries

    Default Advice on Photo Galleries

    Hi Folks,

    We are updating our old website (should have finished months ago ).

    I was looking for some advice or suggestions regarding photo galleries.

    Our old version is at http://www.arrowrockhostel.com/html/gallery.html

    This was originally done with NOF 9, and modified over the last 2 years with both Dreamweaver and Kompozer (long story - don't ask).

    All new pages are with NOF12

    As you see the old page just uses embedded Flickr Slide Shows and YouTube Video's.

    I would like to "modernise" the look but I've never really been happy with the NOF in built slideshow. I have had a quick look at Lytebox and Coffeecup but there seems to be so many alternatives out there I could just spend days checking them all out.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on cheap or free Photo Gallery add-ons?

    My second question is I am I fussing over nothing, given the growing use of iPads and mobiles am I better to stick with what I have?

    And whilst on this subject we have a flash banner on the header of all our new pages - how do I get this to display as a static image for iPads etc?

    Thanks

    Craig

    Have a look at Jalbum. Easily maintained and integrated via an iFrame.

    Mac OSX 10.8.3.....Parallels Desktop 8 (8.0.18483)
    iMac 27" 2.7 GHz Intel Core 2 i5.....12Gb 1333 Mhz DDR3

    Jalbum is a good suggestion - even the free version's ads are not intrusive, and the registered version is very affordable.
    Here's an example using the Matrix skin (very customisable) and an iframe as Ritch suggested:

    Visual LightBox and Video Light Box. JQuery galleries. Both work just fine with NoF. JAlbum is fine too, as long as you stay away from any flash skins. Avoid Flash like the plague. In the new world of handhelds, phones, etc, Flash is rapidly becoming obsolete.

    I've used Jalbum off and on since around 2004. You should definitely
    take a look at it.

    Why not use NOF's photo gallery? Works fine in NOF 11.
