The photo gallery extension provides the functionality to create a web based photo gallery. It uses the Digital Asset Management (DAM) of TYPO3 to store and manage the pictures and display the photos in albums (which are DAM categories). There are two possibilities to display the detail pages. One possibility uses “regular” HTML for the detail page, the other possibility uses AJAX for the display page.
The AJAX Version uses the Mediabox extension by John Einselens which can be downloaded from the TER.
Albums can also be offered as ZIP archives for download.
The look and feel of the display pages can be influenced with cascading style sheets (CSS) – some parameters like the sizes of the images or how many images per row are displayed can easily be configured with flex forms. To save system resources the images are automatically resized and stored on the first time they are displayed. The next time the scaled images are used.
