Have read through several of the threads in which folks were looking for a way to insert a photo gallery into Freeway. A couple of them went off topic into discussions of Photoshop versus Aperture versus Lightroom, but I still couldn’t find what I needed.
While ‘actions’ are cool, the few photo gallery actions I found seem clunky and, to be honest… ugly. Perhaps the problem is a limitation of what can be done within the ‘action’ framwork? What the hell do I know… I’m a designer…
Here’s what I’d like to be able to do and perhaps someone can point me in the right direction other than to a class on HTML/XML although I know some of you good folks live for that programming stuff.
I’d like to be able to draw a box on my website, the way you draw an HTML or Graphic box when designing a page. And then I’d like to be able to insert code the way you insert HTML markup stuff and then have the gallery automatically configure itself to fit within the boundaries of the box I defined (within reason) and still have the functionality of the particular flash gallery that I picked.
Now some of you are shaking your heads… I can see you in my mind thinking “can’t be done…, can’t be done… Freeway can’t do it…”
And while that may be true… that’s the way it should be able to be done (just in case any photo gallery scripters, who have forgotten the beauty of how easily things work on a Mac, may be reading this.)
Since I’m asking for the moon… here are a couple galleries I’d love to be able to just insert somehow into my Freeway page:
Remember folks… we’re Mac people (most of us… the rest are posers
But in seriousness… should I not be able to just insert a flash photo gallery as a flash object or something into a Freeway Pro 5 web page?
I’m not concerned about whether it’s free or not… I just need something that works, is at least a tad customizable and which doesn’t require a programmer’s skill to setup.
Thanks in advance…
