Photo galleries online are
becoming more and more popular with the growth in digital cameras
and camera phones. People want to share photos and post them
Since our sitebuilder is fully
web and wireless compatible anyone can upload images from a
computer, cell phone or other Internet ready device.
Since our system is primarily
business applications it is not the best fir for personal
websites or family websites. We do limit the overall combined
image counts to 2500 shared between the shopping cart and photo
For most businesses 2500
photos is way more than they want to share and the people who
need more can find ample space at other hosts without all the
security, redundancy and backup protection that we provide. For
business websites, having backups is critical and the trade off
is less space for the photo gallery.
We are also one of the only
hosts that provides a complete photogallery system with website
hosting. It is based on our shopping carts without all the
ecommerce. You can manage photos, create categories, add
descriptions. Use standard image display, pop up image displays
or lightbox style slideshows to feature your photos.
This is a great tool for
companies that want to showcase their work such as landscapers
and contractors that tell their story with pictures. It is also
popular with photographers and artists that need to show off
their work without selling it.
Lets face it, people are
generally lazy and would rather look at picture than read lengthy
pages about how great your product or service is. They say a
picture is worth a thousand works, the our photo gallery for
websites is worth two and a half million words. You just can't
argue with that logic.
Below are samples of some of
the display options of the website photo gallery.
The first example of a
photography website shows the main gallery pages which lists all
of the categories with one thumbnail representing each category.
The thumbnail is linked to a lightbox style display slideshow
here the users can scroll through all of the photos in that
category. This sample is shown in the default black, but the
colors are customizable and can be changed to match any website.
The next sample shows basic
thumbnails without names or descriptions linking to full size
images embedded in the actual pages.
Another display option is to
use the pop over page style which lets everyone see the website
in the background clearly.
All of these looks and
features are standard in the photo gallery program. Just select
the options you want and that is how your page will appear.
This is a great program and
offers all of the same image editing tools as
the standard page gallery so the displays and looks can even be
taken further or to even an extreme.
While this gallery is not
going to make your website the next photobucket it will
compliment any e-commerce or business website with great looking
pages that feature pictures showing off what you do or sell.
