Maybe I don’t understand the question, but why can’t you upload your photos into an unused/new directory on your website?
Or maybe you want something like Flickr or Picasa - I just don’t quite understand the question.
Wild guess? - It’s probably the same procedure to output an Exhibeo gallery to HTML - you need to then upload all the dependent objects to somewhere - and change the URLs in the code to point to their new online location.
Something like flickr or picasa, but I have never used those, so I am not sure if I could make my account private and have the pictures only seen on the website i am creating. I just want to upload them to make a slideshow and have the slideshow to be seen on the website, instead of just having ALL the photos on the website
The exhibeo feature for slideshow just doesn’t work well with backdraft, so I am looking for alternative solutions.
OK. I think for any of the free gallery/photo sharing sites your images likely have to be shared publicly in order to use the direct links (some may not even allow direct linking due to bandwidth usage considerations).
It really probably is easier to just get Cyberduck or similar and upload your images to a hidden gallery on the site IMO. You could probably even find a program to set up to sync a folder in your Mac to a cloud storage folder as another alternative.
Spreading resources across different sites/hosts has other concerns though you may wish to consider as well.
but when you click on the first image, i want the bigger one to show in middle…
And you want it responsive? :-/ Only a couple of the Exhibeo themes are responsive unfortunately.
If i could do it that way, that would be fantastic. How would you do a hidden gallery in freeway?
Upload Resources allows you to add items to your site’s directory. I just use Cyberduck because it’s simpler - and more direct. It’s the equivalent of going to your host/file manager and adding an extra directory and dropping the files into that directory. Freeway won’t erase it as long as you aren’t using a directory name FW needs to use. (Call it “xtraphotos” or something.
What I was talking about would be embedding a different type of viewer in a FW site. That would require the extra directory of photos to be manually uploaded.
The Exhibeo Showtime theme http://exhibeoapp.com/showtime/ is thumbnails with one large image and is responsive and works well in a responsive FW7 site - but I think you’re saying 1. It doesn’t play nice with Backdraft - and 2. You want to initially see thumbnails only - then pop up to a full size image in a lightbox?
There are solutions to this problem, but they will require you to get out the oily rags and spanners and do some things that Freeway and the many Actions for it generally insulate away from you. This is not difficult, but it is aggressively technical and requires precision. If you feel like this is something you want to tackle, please let me know. I have a particular idea that may work for you here. But as I say, it’s not going to be clicky-draggy-easy. It’s going to be “download a programmer’s text editor, create some text files, upload them to your server, upload the images to your server, and paste this line of code into a Markup Item in Freeway.” You won’t be able to see anything in your layout except a little [ < H > ] icon. You’ll have to take it on faith that it works. And if it doesn’t, you’ll have to turn on error reporting and read a cryptic message from the nether world and try to make sense of why a semicolon is such a big deal.

Wasn’t there a post a while ago that had this exact idea? I don’t really remember
If this does not work, what is another way to get the images to work like a slideshow?
