For ages now I’ve been meaning to set up a simple web site to display photographs.
Last year I used a WordPress template to create this mostly photo site for my sailboat Madsu.
This time, I wanted something super simple.
I’ve been using Slide Show Pro for a while now. It’s real strength comes when you combine it with Slide Show Pro Director, which is a content management system. I use it on the main page of this blog, but also for client sites where I need a rotating banner that’s going to get changed often. Adding new images to the slide show is simply a matter of uploading them to the CMS, and nothing needs to be changed on the website itself.
For this little gallery called I Love North Shore, I’m also using the Thumbgrid for navigation.
After taking a lot of bits and pieces apart, I’m finally reassembling Madsu and we’re just days away from getting her back in the water for the summer.
In celebration, I put together this little slide show.
- Use the + and – buttons to go forward or back, or jump using the thumbnail images
- Your keyboard page forward and page back buttons will also work
- Mouse over the image to see if I’d added any notes…
