Creating an Image Gallery

UTC's website supports two types of image galleries:

  • Fancy Box: image thumbnails are displayed on the page; when clicked, they launch a sequential slideshow overlay
  • Slider: images are displayed the full width of the parent column, with title and description overlay; hovering over the image displays directional controls. As you may have guessed, this page shows a Slider gallery.

Gallery type can be set either when the page is created the first time, or by editing the page's parameters (Properties > Parameters) after it has been created. Galleries are first created as assets and then inserted in the page by clicking on the Insert/Edit Asset icon in the WYSISYG editor.

Slider galleries: crop all source images identically, at 960 pixels wide by XXX pixels tall. Slider galleries are limited to a single instance per page. For multiple image galleries per page, choose the Fancy Box option.
