2014 Image Gallery

Image Gallery Assets feature allows users to easily create and manage image galleries in the OU Campus system. Users can drag images to upload them into the gallery and for each image, provide a title, description (this is the alt text for readers), caption, and link. At any time, images can be deleted, added, the information about them edited, and can be dragged into a new order. OU Campus automatically generates thumbnails based on user-defined settings. 

Examples of Image Galleries

Two types of image galleries can be implemented on the 2014 Linux site. Below is a brief overview of a few options and keep in mind that each type has various configurable options such as the size of the images, the speed of the transition,  and so on.

 


 

Pretty Photo Thumbnails (see a sample page using this gallery)

Description: Thumbnails of all images will be displayed in rows on the page and when the user clicks the image, it will open up in a modal or framed window in front of the current page content.
