This is a software tool to show off a set of images/photographs.
Elegant Photo Gallery is a template with 3D carousel presentation. Image thumbnails can me moved around with the slider control available below the display. You can add audio to the presentation and a control is available that will mute the same too. When selected, the thumbnail grows into a bigger display by going through a transition effect which rotates the picture and displays it on frame. This frame has forward/backwards control for browsing through other images at this magnified condition. Alternately you can let the show play automatically. The pause between images can be set through the XML file as well as the other parameters. Things that you can be updated dynamically include background music, slideshow autoplay, fullscreen mode, background color change, unlimited number of galleries and images per gallery and description text box for each image.
The package supplied includes FLA, SWF, XML, JS etc. that opens in Flash CS3, Flash CS4, Flash CS5 and plays with Flash Player 9 when you buy the product. ActionScript used is the version 3.0. The overall effect is quite attractive. Particularly the transition from the thumbnail to the bigger picture is quite eye-catching. This kind of photo-show helps to grab the attention of a visitor to the site displaying the photos. The commerce game on the Internet is about holding a visitor`s attention! Only then, maybe, the visitor will check around the site and find something that interests him and to buy! This could easily create that stickiness. On the flip side, once the slide show of the bigger pictures start, there is no easy way to come back to the thumbnail carousel.
