Timothy Armes has today released the second in his new series of “Web Site Publishing Pro” plugins.
Filmstrip WSPP allows users to create and entire web site based around a hierarchical set of horizontal scrolling gallery.
There are plenty of configurable options. Here are the highlights:
* Impressive and memorable viewing experience thanks to scaled-to-browser-height images.
* Images are preloaded and faded in as they become available.
* Multiple image resolutions are exported and the most appropriate resolution is used when displaying the images. This ensures fast loading on mobile devices without penalising the image quality on desktop machines.
* Very configurable interface. The “filmstrip” can be displayed in many ways thanks to the ability to add spacing and borders.
* Optional fixed size header and footer areas give you space to put menus and controls that won’t interfere with the images.
* Individual annotations can be displayed on the images. Annotations can include image metadata and may be formatted with Markdown.
* The display of annotations can be turned on and off by the viewer.
* Custom pinch gestures for iOS devices such as the iPhone and iPad allow visitor to change the height of the strip.
As with Impact WSPP, publication of web sites is done through Lightroom’s Publish Services, and the resulting simplicity of creating an entire site has to be tried to be believed.
