Topic: picasa web

hello,

I must say your plug-in is amazing piece of work and I like it a lot.
I am using the picasa web code.

I have this site: http://danporat.com/Photography/
The problem is that the image size is very limited.
Is there any way , to view the images (not in a seperate window)  @ 920 MAX ?
If possible , the ideal is that they should be the size of these images :

Thanks

Re: picasa web

You could perhaps increase the size of the gallery on your page by reducing the blank space above the header and by making the gallery wider.
The gallery is displaying each image as large as possible in the given image area without cropping the images.
You could also try using only one column or row of thumbnails which would increase the space available for the image area.
You could also disable thumbnails completely by using thumbPosition="NONE" giving the main images even more space.
If you were to purchase SimpleViewer-Pro, you would have access to other options such as stageBorder, stageHPadding and stageVPadding which would help you reduce unwanted space around gallery elements.
With SimpleViewer-Pro, you could also change the imageScaleMode to force images to completely fill the image area (though this may result in cropping of certain images).
All available 'SimpleViewer-Pro Config Options' can be found here: http://simpleviewer.net/simpleviewer/pr … tions.html

Re: picasa web

Thanks for the elaborate response!

The Pro version configruable params look just great!
I think that is a great option once I have my site set.

Are any of the options below (except reducing the blank space above the header) viable in the Simpleviewer picasa web code ?
if so , is there a code snippet you could send me ?

in the original code I have Downloaded from http://www.paulvanroekel.nl/picasawebalbums/ those options are not in the css.

I would very much appreciate your help.
Already implemented your first advice (eliminating blank space above header).


Thanks

Re: picasa web

SimpleViewer options are not set via CSS.
CSS can, however, be used to place the gallery in a certain position on your page.
SimpleViewer Options (as described on this page) should be set as attributes to the opening <simpleviewergallery> tag in the gallery's XML file.
If you were to use SimpleViewer-Pro, you would need to replace the 'simpleviewer.swf' file in the plugin with the 'simpleviewer.swf' file from the SimpleViewer-Pro download package ('simpleviewer_pro_213/web/svcore/swf/simpleviewer.swf') and then add the options into the plugin's 'xml.php' file on line 18.
With regard to the CSS file, you could reduce the margins (though it would appear you may already have done that).

Re: picasa web

In the pro version exists for picasa web with more than 50 photos?

Tanks

Re: picasa web

@matheussoli
In order to remove the 50-image limit, replace the 'simpleviewer.swf' file in the plugin with the 'simpleviewer.swf' file from the SimpleViewer-Pro download package ('simpleviewer_pro_220/web/svcore/swf/simpleviewer.swf').
