Topic: Pro newbie question: svBuilder to 'permanently' modify LR3 SV output?

Long time SV user, short time SV Pro user..

Is it possible to use svBuilder to make a 'preset' and move it to LR3 web galleries folder so
ALL SV pages created by LR3 will have a unified look?

I am trying to avoid massaging my pages with svBuilder every time I change my website (which is quite frequent)

thanks

You can't use svBuilder to build presets for Lightroom, what you would have to do edit the SimpleViewer Lightroom plug-in and add in your your standard settings as you see them at the top of the gallery.xml.

whoops -- now I am a bit confused
I thought you meant edit the plugin package for lightroom
opening the package, it does not contain a gallery.xml file.

please advise.

thanks

the gallery.xml is genorated by the plug-in, if you edit the plugin in a text editor like notepad you should be able to find the piece of the XML in the code where the settings are stored. Just change that to the settings you normally use.

xmlTransformer.xslt about lines 34-55:

<simpleviewerGallery 

    title="{$galleryTitle}"
    galleryStyle="{$galleryStyle}"
    thumbPosition="{$thumbPosition}"
    textColor="{$textColor}"
    frameColor="{$frameColor}"
    thumbColumns="{$thumbColumns}"
    thumbRows="{$thumbRows}"
    frameWidth="{$frameWidth}"
    showOpenButton="{$showOpenButton}"
    showFullscreenButton="{$showFullscreenButton}"
    maxImageWidth="{$maxImageWidth}"
    maxImageHeight="{$maxImageHeight}"
    useFlickr="{$useFlickr}"
    flickrUserName="{$flickrUserName}"
    flickrTags="{$flickrTags}"
    languageCode="AUTO"
    languageList=""        
    imagePath="photos/" 
    thumbPath="thumbnails/"

ahh.. gotcha. I was hoping I could tweak the plugin to automatically generate a gallery.xml with the setting I use.
prob just easy then to use svBuilder to open the generated code, apply a preset and save the modified code.

works well, but just adds an extra step which is tricky if I am changing photos in different galleries frequently.
are there plans for a true SV pro LR plugin?

cheers,
Eric
