How to make a Slideshow Gallery Module

After you CREATE A GALLERY, you can put it into a module so it displays in one of these three formats:

  • Bottom Menu: A full-sized photo with a numbered menu at the bottom.
  • Right Hand Menu: A smaller photo with titles on the right hand side.
  • Slideshow Style: A smaller photo with a title and description.

Gallery Height -  Set the height of your gallery in a ratio relative to the width - for instance, use 50 for the height and 100 for the width. (use pixels for Rivista Classic, i.e. "450 px")

Slideshow speed - This is the number of seconds between each slide. You can increase or decrease this number.

Image Height - Set the height of your images in a ratio relative to the width (use pixels for Rivista Classic) 

 

Image Width - Set the width of your images in a ratio relative to the height (use pixels for Rivista Classic)

Loader Image - Chose the image that will appear while the gallery is loading.

These options allow you to customize the look of your gallery. If you chose to show descriptions, credits, or captions, you must be sure to make your gallery width small enough to accommodate these.

The "Show Title" option will show the title of your gallery.

______________________________________________________________

After you have set up the gallery module, you can Add it to a page.

NOTE: You may need to do some experimenting to achieve the look you want with your gallery. You can always make a "Test" page and put the gallery on it to see what it looks like before putting the gallery on your active landing pages.  If it doesn't look right, try changing the gallery height and width or the image width. If you have other slideshow gallery modules, look at their settings and copy them.  If you still cannot figure out the slideshow gallery module, please contact GTxcel support for assistance.
