New! Galleries Added to the Blog!

Have you ever wondered where the pics go that don't make the blog? Well wonder no more, because I've now added a Gallery Page! Taking direction from Josh's & Walt's Galleries I decided to go with simpleviewer. It's pretty easy. You download the template, upload it to your site, upload your pics and put them in the template's images folder, set some file permissions, run the buildgallery.php page (the only tricky part) and BAM instant photo gallery. Because it's a template rather than a program, it is relatively easy to customize. The page is built with flash, so you might need to install it. As you can see by the picture below, the gallery puts small thumbnails to the left of the actual picture. These thumbnails preload the enlarged images so it seems like the photos are displayed instantly. You can either click on one of the small thumbnails to make the larger image appear, or my personal favorite, use your scroll wheel on your mouse to quickly flip through the photos(sorry mac guys...)Take a look, there's also a link on the right sidebar under the calendar. I really like the way it came out.
