SimpleViewer-Pro is currently on version 2.3.1. Not your version? View upgrade details and previous version documentation.
SimpleViewer-Pro now includes SimpleViewer Mobile, a HTML5 version of SimpleViewer specifically designed for mobile devices that do not support Flash. This includes iPhones, iPads and Android devices. SimpleViewer Mobile provides a minimal interface to better present images on a small screen.
The mobile version of the gallery is automatically created and is displayed if the user's device does not have the Flash plugin enabled. To see this in action, view any SimpleViewer-Pro demo using a mobile device.
We reccomend using svBuilder-Pro as the easiest and most powerful way to build a SimpleViewer-Pro gallery. You can also build SimpleViewer-Pro galleries using various templates and scripts. Follow these instructions to upgrade templates to use SimpleViewer-Pro.
The following terms are used frequently in this documentation:
To upgrade existing SimpleViewer standard galleries to SimpleViewer-Pro, replace the svCore folder in your existing gallery folder with the one that comes in the Pro download web folder.
SimpleViewer-Pro supports ICC Color Profiles which can provide more accurate color display. Check the 'Use Color Correction' option in svBuilder-Pro to enable this feature.
When 'Use Color Correction' is true, SimpleViewer-Pro will use Flash 10's color correction when possible. This can provide closer color fidelity for images with embedded color profiles, but can also cause color shifting on some systems. To ensure your image colors look the same on all systems, we reccomend you save your images without a color profile. Check the FAQ here for details.
There are multiple ways to add a logo or branding image to your SimpleViewer-Pro gallery. These are ordered by how easy they are to implement:
SimpleViewer-Pro allows you to load gallery option presets into existing galleries by using the presetURL flashVar option. This allows multiple galleries to share a common style. A preset file loaded via the presetURL option will overwrite any options in the gallery.xml file with the contents of the preset. Create a preset file using svBuilder-Pro. Set the presetURL in the same way as for other flashVar options.
Presets only affect options that relate to gallery appearance, not gallery content. The following options are not affected by presets: Local image data, Flickr search options, title, audioURL, backgroundURL.
