Photo Albums & Slideshows
Display your photos the way you want
ShutterBug's image processing and photo gallery abilities know no bounds! Use your
imagination and create some unique layouts for your photos or stick with a simple gallery
and slideshow presentation. You can batch resize your photos, choose custom sizes, overlap
photos, create auto collages, add picture frames, drop shadows and watermarks, adjust the
number of thumbnails to display, customize the slideshow settings to your exact needs, and
so much more.
Classy Thumbnail Displays
Your thumbnail pictures can be arranged in photo albums, automatic collages, or they can float freely
on the page, even overlapping one another. You can create colored or image backgrounds for the album
box, insert a graphic for the picture frame or use the border settings to select from a list of different
effects to frame your thumbnails with. How about adding some inside margins for a matte effect. You
can even add a drop shadow for an elegant look and batch watermark your photos with one click.
There's an option for every flavor of the day!
Easy Thumbnail Sizing
ShutterBug does all the hard work for you, automatically resizing your pictures for uploading to the
web. You can batch resize your thumbnails to have them all set to the same size or have them display
at their different aspect ratios. You can also center your thumbnails at their various aspect ratios within
a picture frame for a unique look. You can even input your own custom sizes if you want. Or you can
resize them independent of one another and move each one around freely on the page. ShutterBug
gives you a wealth of options without sacrificing quality.
You can decide what happens when the thumbnail picture is clicked. Choose from one of these actions:
Open a slideshow in a new page
Have the slideshow on the same page
as the thumbnails and change the
slideshow picture when a thumbnail is
Open the picture in a new window
Navigate to another page or another
website (opens embedded link)
Set the click action to do nothing
Or activate a LightBox show
Attractive, Elegant Slideshows
ShutterBug slideshows offer everything from fade transitions, random order, and looping, to adding
picture frames and freestyle positioning of the slideshow picture, controls and captions. You can choose
to display a standard slideshow and make only a few adjustments to such attributes as caption font,
control fonts, and slideshow sizing. Or you can set every fine detail by using the freestyle option. If you
have retouched photos, you may also want to try out the Before/After option for your slideshow images.
You can even choose to show the other elements on your page during the slideshow view and include
as much text description and comments as you like. You can edit everything about the slideshow, or
you can leave it the way it comes with the template, it's up to you!
Your captions for your thumbnails and slideshow views
can be adjusted independent of one another. You can
change the font style, color, size, and line leading for
multiple line captions. Adjust the space between the
thumbnail and caption text and set the alignment,
bolding, italics or underlining. You can choose to show
the captions as tool tips when hovering over a thumbnail,
or place them above, below, or inset them on the thumbnail.
You can also choose to make them invisible if you want.
