I am glad to announce Gallery Stacks 3 is on the horizon - the long anticipated successor of the most popular Gallery Stacks 2. I started developing on the day Stacks 3 came out, and it will be a great update.
Beside the features you are expecting from a Photo Album, Gallery Stacks 3 has some key elements I worked on in detail:
Full preview capabilities in RW7 (Yeah!)
7 grid layouts, 5 light boxes, 3+ sliders
Drag and Drop images, automatic thumbnail creation, integration with various warehouse image stacks - and with this, no need any more for using a standard RW photo album
If you are a Gallery Stack 2 user, you will feel quite familiar. If you have certain feature requests, now it is the time to speak up, so let me know. Expect a release around end of May (also depending on the RW7 release date).
N.B.: If you decide to buy Gallery Stack 2 now, you will receive a free upgrade.
Thanks for the beta request too. At the moment your amazing stack is the one and only that supports TCMS Galleries. The stack was without any problems from the beginning. So many features and styles. Great work… Thanks again…
Thanks all customers who already bought the new version for the tremendous feedback
The most versatile Photo Gallery and Slideshow just got a lot improvements and is ready to bring your web project to the next level. Not only beginners will find the new way of Stack configuration very intuitive, also the pros will enjoy selecting between the different grid, lightbox, and slider components (currently 16).
As always, additional configuration and extension options will come along the way in the future, e.g. an integration with Photostream Stack for FTP / Web Directory Integration.
Benefit from the special introductory pricing until end if this week (5th of June).
This may be a silly question but … if I want to use Gallery 3 with Foundry, and I want to use a group of warehoused images, then will this all work fine? Specifically I can’t tell if the Remote Image Stack is needed to work with Gallery 3 for this situation. It seems using Remote Image Stack I’d need to link to each image individually. Ugh. So is there a way to link to a folder of warehoused images that will work with Gallery 3? And, if “yes”, then how does the text description of each image occur?
That all work seamlessly. If you want to use a FTP folder for example, you just take the Photostream Integration (all included) and configure to use a distinct folder of choice for your photos. As Grid option, you select the Foundry Grid.
With that, a combination of:
As captions, IPTC is able to be be used, currently limited to the following attributes.
Date Created (55)
or the image file name
NB: Currently, the thumbnails are not generated automatically with that FTP folder option, so if you need square thumbnails, you have to generate them by yourself and put them into a sub folder called /thumbs
I am working on a documentation update and videos currently…
so I can use it with any theme? It doesn’t have to be one of the ones listed? The reason I am asking is because I have the infinite theme by @henkvrieselaar and I currently have Impact from @joeworkman and they are not compatible at all. I love the theme but I have to find things that are compatible with the themes that I use.
Until now, I did not find any theme not working with Gallery Stack. So assumption is that you are able to use it with any theme.
But of course there is no 100% guarantee. So if it will not work with the the infinite theme, you will get your money back
