Creating a HTML Photo Gallery
You don’t need a lot of skills to create a HTML photo gallery to add to your website. The steps are easy and you will be able to make a gallery in no time.
Make a new folder and select the pictures you want to add. A very useful tool you will need here is Flash Slideshow Creator. You can google it and download it. After installation is finished, click the “New” button to start making the slideshow by dragging the pictures you’d like to add.
After that, select a gallery template you like. The program has more than 35 ready designs you will like for sure. Pick the one you see suits you the most and click it. Choose according to the theme you are going for.
Next will be the step of decorating. There are “Intro and End” settings you will need to set. Disable them if you don’t like, and then click the effect box to begin adding transitions. There are more than 70 effects to use including effects such as pushing and swift. With these, you are sure to make your slideshow stylish and beautiful. You can check it out for yourself by viewing the preview and see if you really like it. You will be able to choose different transitions and effects for each picture in the slide or apply the same one to all the images. Last step is optional and it is up to you, adding texts. There is an “Add text” button in the lower part which you can use for that.
Now since we have the gallery’s design and the pictures all added, we will need to publish it to the website. This is not so hard, but it requires some focusing. Go to the “Publish” panel and click the button, “Settings”. You will see a various set of options to set, including looping styles, flash options and sizes. After you are done with that, click the “Make HTML file” to export the file you are going to use for putting the gallery on your website.
Check the folder you chose earlier to put the output files in. You will see 2 files. These are the ones which will be used for uploading the gallery on your website. Upload these two files to your server through your FTP manager and then use your host to display it on your website. Examples are WordPress, Blogspot and MySpace. If you are going to use something like MySpace, you are not going to need a FTP manager most likely.
Making a gallery for the website you’d like to have it on is not as hard as you think as long as you use Flash Slideshow Creator. You might find other programs as well that are similar to it, but this program makes everything easier for you. Just follow the steps in this article and you will have a gallery for people to view on your website in no time!
