I have a new client that needs a website where there is a gallery of say Jewelry photos where you click on a photo and have it open up in a lightbox where there is a description of the item and a link to purchase the item. The added difficulty I see is that they want there to be 3 photos of each item showing the item from different views (front, back, etc). I am at a loss as to how to do this and would appreciate any suggestions.
The only thing that comes to my mind is to have a thumbnail photo showing just one view and have it open to show 2 or 3 views. Is there a way to do this? My only experience with photo galleries so far is to use Image slider, refined slide and weaverpix but I don’t think these will work.
Off the top of my head, Doobox’s Image Plus stack has a column that opens on clicking an image. As far as I can tell, you can then use any stacks in that column to insert other images and some text and a button.
@NeilUK Thanks for that suggestion. I’ll take a look at that stack…sounds like it might be just what I need.
I was also looking at some of Elixir’s themes like Rustic where there is a Blog Entry Topper where you can add photos above the blog entry and was wondering if that might be a way to do it by linking the gallery photo to a blog entry (but not named blog entry).
I used Topbox on my site here: http://www.transparentimages.com/wall_hung_glass_art/
I made a stack with information on and a photo, and then when you click on each photo a new window pop us, you can have as many photos and text areas as you like, you just set them up in Topbox
