Photo Gallery

A gallery template has been created for easy setup of a Photo Gallery that includes a slide show, normal sized photos and photo thumbnails. This will work with JPEG, JPG, BMP, GIF, and PNG images.

Instructions & Tips

Start folders on your desktop to match the photo gallery set up. Create two folders one for thumbnail images and one for section images.

  • Thumbnails Images can vary in size, however images will be spaced evenly over the 700 pix wide of the display area. A good size is 126 x 110, all thumbnail photos must be the same size.
  • Section Images will be adjusted to fit the screen during the slide show. While there is no standard size, it is good practice to keep images 600 pix wide.
  • The Thumbnail Images and Section Images must be named the same.
  • There are two photos for each slide in the Photo Gallery. The larger files are be placed into the Section folder. The smaller preview photo is placed in the Thumbnail folder.
