simpleviewer embedding that draws on gallery data (separate image and thumb paths)
|Posted: Mon, 2007-09-24 05:30|
I have been happily using Gallery for some time now and have been really impressed.
At the moment I am playing with some slick ways to embed photos from my gallery within other web structures (embedded flash shows, etc.). One of the tools i'd like to use (simpleviewer) requires that one feeds it a path to image thumbnails, and a separate path to full-res images (for each embedded slideshow that one want's to create). Then, within these 2 separate paths, one must place the image files using the SAME filenames for both the thumb and full-res versions, like this pair:
i'm wondering if this is possible with Gallery, ie. is there a way (URL rewrite, config option, etc) to list an image and it's thumbnail by separate paths, but the SAME filename?
From what I have seen, it does not look like Gallery makes much distinction (within the actual data storage) between am "image" and a "thumb". it looks like both are treated just an another image id
For example, one image in my gallery can be accessed directly at:
i know that there are other pre-packaged ways to place/embed slideshows in other domains that use gallery data, but i must admit that simpleviewer (http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simpleviewer/) is just an amazing, simple and free piece if flash software, so it would be great to somehow link it to the data already organized in a gallery install. I suppose a solution to this would also be of interest to anyone interested in integrating simpleviewer as part of a Gallery theme.
Any info greatly appreciated!
