ProteiStyl' Photo Gallery PLUGIN

  • This is the support thread for the ProteiStyl' Photo Gallery PLUGIN

    Current version: v2.3.0

    Short Description
    ProteiStyl’ Photo Gallery is a html5 plugin for krpano designed for displaying ‘classic’ photos and/or videos into a virtual tour.
    The ‘philosophy’ of this plugin is to go over the classical "thumbnails + one-photo display" in a single layout. The plugin offers two displaying modes: a grid gallery, which displays only thumbnails but gives an overall vision of the pictures of the gallery, and a scroll gallery, which displays only enlarged images. Switching to a displaying mode to another is done by clicking on the pictures (or on the back button if zooming function is enabled).
    Another exclusive feature of this plugin is the possibility to customize almost all elements displayed on screen. Indeed, very different gallery appearances/ambiances can be easily created by using the graphical EDITOR , which directly applies any changes done on the parameters.

    More info on the official web page:

  • Release of the beta3 version *smile*

    Changes compared to beta2

    · The EDITOR is fully operative also for the scroll gallery.

    · Preloading processes for grid gallery and scroll gallery can be independently disabled (new ‘preload_image_scroll’ attribute).

    · Progressive loading of images of the scroll gallery when preload_image_scroll=”false”.

    · <keep_gallery> element replaced by a new ‘keep’ attribute.

    · New ‘numbers_opacity’ attribute for defining image numbers opacity (in the scroll gallery) independently of the one of the image titles.

    · New possibility to open automatically a gallery when opening a scene (for integration of a gallery as a scene in the virtual tour).

    · Bug fix: Preloading processes occur only once per gallery (even after scene change).

    · Bug fix: no message “ERROR: style not found: pspg_FS_button” anymore on mobile devices with no fullscreen support.

  • Release of the beta5 version *smile*

    Changes compared to beta4

    · The scroll gallery uses temporarily the smaller images (previously downloaded for the grid gallery) before the normal largest images were downloaded.

    · Add .png and .gif images support.

    · A loading time-out was added (in case of download failure or file corruption). New global parameter to set the time-out : <pspg_settings load_timeout="20"/>. After the loading time-out, images which are not displayed yet are replaced by an error message.

    · Use also email to tie plugin license to the krpano license.

    · Change in the scrolling behavior for the scroll gallery on mobile devices.

    · Change of default color background of gallery (light gray 0xCCCCCC).

    · Updated documentation (in particular with points 3- and 5- (previously forgotten!!) in section “Syntax / XML Usage Example”).

    · Bug fix: message “Loading Images…” (defined by pspg_settings.loading_text) did not disappear when some images were missing and/or if there is some download failure (fixed by loading time-out).

    · Bug fix: updates of galleries were sometimes wrong when changing windows size (in particular changing orientation on mobile phones).

    · Bug fix: the font size of images titles was sometimes not consistent.

  • I'm going to release version 2.0.0 of the plugin... a lot of change compared to v1.4.0 !
    The internal structure of the plugin was deeply changed. Compatibility checked with krpano v1.20 *smile*

    It's not completely tested yet (particularly on mobile devices) *unsure* (and i have to update the documentation)... but all the examples from the first post of the current thread are now with v2.0.0.

    2 others examples:
    - demo of new colors and styles for interface buttons
    - demo of using different default_settings sets

    If some peoples have some time for testing them on (various) smartphones, please send me some feedback *wink*
