Fix for Flickr Galleries Released
Posts found: 2
I'm very new to SV Pro, and still trying to figure it all out, but I would like to give a "me too" for some previous suggestions and add some possible new ones:
1) Allow the end user to change the slideshow transition time
2) Have SV Builder read the EXIF camera orientation info and rotate the images if needed
3) As described in another post I just made, enable download in full screen mode via force quitting full screen first
4) Have an automated way in SV Builder to make the Download and Open New buttons link to a separate full-res image. This would allow the main gallery to run much faster by using low-res images, but still allow the originals to be obtained by the end user. Right now I am splitting the difference and using "medium res" images, but load times are still slowish though not terrible.
All in all this appears to be a great product so far. I like its nice clean look.
If it is not possible to enable download while in full screen (is that a limitation of Flash?), I would like to propose an alternative.
But first, why this matters to me (and perhaps others). I just purchased SV Pro and am trying to get my new site going. I plan to have a small note on the page to encourage viewers to use full screen mode for the best possible experience. My clients and their friends & family will know they can download the images, as that is part of the deal and will be explained at each event. If I tell them to use full screen, but then they can't download images, it is going to cause much confusion with my clients and no doubt a few "what the heck!?" emails to me. This will require me to add more explanatory text on the page which will only further clutter SV's clean look and sound broken and mickey-moused.
Can you modify the code of SV Pro to force-quit full screen mode when the download button is clicked, then execute your pre-existing code for that button? It is a shame that downloads will not work in full screen, but at least this solution will allow the button to work with the only side-effect being that it dumps you out of full screen (much less confusing than a non-functional button, I should think). If everyone is not keen on this solution, it could be added as an option in the xml instead of a full-time feature.
