A few weeks ago, Matthew Campagna from The Turning Gate, sent me a gallery link to look at, specifically via my iPod Touch. It looked wonderful and was very elegant, of course it elicited lots of questions and comments from me. In truth I was very impressed with it. This was a preview of the TTG iPhone Portfolio 1.0 gallery, and is now available to download.
The purpose of this web engine is to create an iPhone compatible gallery, which has all the bells and whistles of a normal web gallery. The gallery itself comprises of the Identity Plate on top (optionally), a contact and an about page (both editable) and a series of square thumbnails. The thumbnails are fluid and fill the page if you tilt the iPhone/iPod Touch. Touching a thumbnail will reveal a larger version of the image. A second tap of the screen removes it. As with all of Matthew’s galleries, this one looks great and suits a very specific task in the ever evolving world of online self promotion.
