[Pro] images in galleries

I have built sections on this website using galleries to show old picture features of this 80’s magazine.

When you click on them to display them in the gallery, it works fine but whilst I can zoom in to read the type, I can’t then move the page around inside the window to look at different areas close up, only up and down not left to right.

Is there a way to build in this functionality in Freeway using the galleries or will I have to make each item to open in a separate window like this one ?- features 02

Or is there a better way to display scanned magazine articles so that they have the functionately of being able to be zoomed in and moved a round for ease of reading ?

Cheers, Neil

Hi Neil,

difficult answer, cause I tend to give the decision into designer’s hand what of them both she gives the favor point.

Technically spoken you’re right:

The “lightbox” behind showcase isn’t a “window” but an item overlaying the page (in page). So nothing to drag - cause nothing there to. Only scrolling available after zooming in.

The other one is forcing to open a new smaller instance of a window (such as you would hit CMD-N in your favorite browser), therefor to drag and drop even after scaling.

Personally I prefer the in-browser lightbox version - but if you favor the “new window”, there’s nothing against (and even the better choice - perhaps).

Cheers

Thanks Thomas, I think I may have to re-build the pages as “new window” links. What is the in-browser lightbox version, is that plug-in for Freeway Pro or is it an existing feature ? I haven’t seen it.

No … in your case it’s automagically a feature and part of your showcase “gallery” (but might be wrong here)

For “single” images, there is even an action called ScriptyLightbox in different versions. Have a look at ActionsForge for them.

I can’t see anything for a lightbox feature in the gallery application, just ‘gallery’ or ‘slideshow’ ??

Haven’t seen ScriptyLightbox, I’ll look on Actions Forge.

Ahhhmm???

You already got what you need - NOTHING to seek for - nothing to change (it’s just the type “gallery” doing this click and make images big type of thing that I called lightbox).

Just decide what you like more, and you already gave the answer: The new window method.

Apologize if my answer caused confusions.

Cheers
