SETUP GALLERY & CART: | Gallery setup help | Image text editing
Because this template includes a slideshow for each gallery, plus text with each image, the best way to setup the images in the gallery is not to actually edit the gallery HTML pages and change the picture names on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names.
Gallery thumbnails, named "gallery?-?.jpg" in the "gallery" folder, are 150 x 100 pixels in size. Gallery large closeup view images, named "Fgallery?-?.jpg", are 700 x 467 pixels. You can make these images any height you would like, but the 150 and 700 widths can only be changed by editing the "style.css" (see notes in the css file to find these width classes).
Click here to not use text in the viewer with your images and for other options.
EXAMPLE: SETUP GALLERY IMAGE 1-1: In the "gallery" folder replace the "gallery1-1.jpg" with a 150 x 100 thumbnail image. Replace the "Fgallery1-1.jpg" with a 700 x 467 .jpg of the same image. In the "gallery_pages" folder edit the "Fgallery1-1.htm" with your item details and order button details (see next step). Now open the "gallery1.htm" page and check the first image on the page, click on the image to see that it is setup. Your first image will be setup and you can proceed to gallery image 1-2.
