Feedback

    * I would like to say that Flickr Gallery is a stunning lil program! Its almost too good to be true i'd say! I've been looking for tutorials to create a lightbox gallery, but just couldnt come right. Im so glad i found Flickr Gallery!

    * I find Flickr Gallery (and lightbox2) a great tool and was about to proceed in its purchase.

    * I LOVE your free Lightbox2 software tool and will purchase the business version shortly. I have seen the Lightbox JS effect used with video tutorials and I was hoping you have a version for video that I can purchase.

FAQ

Q:Instead of making one page with 40 photos, is there no property to make 2 or more pages?

A:You can do it in the following way:

1. Create your gallery in Flickr Gallery and publish it on a local drive in any test folder.
2. Make two copies of the generated index.html file (for example index1.html and index2.html).
3. Open index.html, index1.html and index2.html files in any text editor.
4. Find code for the gallery inside the BODY tag and cut some part of the images, so you'll have different images on each page.

<!-- Start Flickr Gallery.com BODY section -->
<div class="gallery">
<!-- leave the following code on index.html page -->
<a href="./data/images/1.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="Best Toy Ever"><img src="./data/thumbnails/1.png" /></a>
<a href="./data/images/8.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="PrueaMacro"><img src="./data/thumbnails/8.png" /></a>

<!-- leave the following code on index1.html page -->
<a href="./data/images/3.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="Macro Leaf."><img src="./data/thumbnails/3.png" /></a>
<a href="./data/images/11.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="Bell Pepper"><img src="./data/thumbnails/11.png" /></a>

<!-- leave the following code on index2.html page -->
<a href="./data/images/5_0.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="5"><img src="./data/thumbnails/5_0.png" /></a>
<a href="./data/images/6_0.jpg" rel="lightbox[sample]" title="6"><img src="./data/thumbnails/6_0.png" /></a>

<!--[if lte IE 6]><script src="engine/js/pngfix_vlb.js" type="text/javascript"></script><![endif]-->
<a id="vlightbox" href="http://Flickr Gallery.com/">Online Photo Album Sharing by Flickr Gallery.com</a>
</div>
<!-- End Flickr Gallery.com BODY section -->

5. Create links to switch between your pages, for example:
<a href="index.html">1</a>  <a href="index1.html">2</a>  <a href="index2.html">3</a> 


Q:I want to change color of the overlay shadow? How can I do this?

A:Open engine\css\Flickr Gallery.css and find the following code:

#overlay{
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
z-index: 90;
width: 100%;
height: 500px;
background-color: #FFF;
filter:alpha(opacity=60);
-moz-opacity: 0.6;
opacity: 0.6;
}

set the background-color parameter :

#overlay{
position: absolute;
top: 0;
left: 0;
z-index: 90;
width: 100%;
height: 500px;
background-color: #FF00FF;
filter:alpha(opacity=60);
