[Pro] Exhibeo or Lightroom

Hi chaps, wasn’t sure whether to put this here or the Exhibeo forum … anyway.

I am in the early stages of a new website for the town where I live, I’ve managed to create a ‘gallery’ page in Lightroom, it’s pretty easy, if I want to add a new image I go to L’room drag the new shot into the correct folder and click ‘upload’ then I go to my Freeway project and go to the iFrame and click on the external hyperlink (the folder of images sits in my site folder), and upload … job done. Now we have a new theme in Exhibeo I am tempted to buy it … the drawback is I will now have to export from Lightroom into a local folder and I think updating will be a little cumbersome … can anyone with more knowledge than I (that includes all of you) please have a look at the link and tell me if they think there are any advantages to me using Exhibeo please ?

Hi Roger,

The main advantage I can see is that you’d get high resolution images coming out of Exhibeo. They currently look a little blurry on retina devices.

Hi Roger,

I haven’t used Exhibeo so can’t give the pro’s and con’s of that but I have used Lightroom galleries and use LR as a catalog on a daily basis. It can become a bit of a chore to change and then export, then upload, etc. , especially if you envisage changing on a regular basis.

My current choice and the one I’m implementing on my new photography site is the lightbox that comes with PulseCMS. So suggest you give their demo a go http://pulsedemo.net/gallery.php It can be customised quite easily. Good price also.
