How to display a photo gallery

From this tutorial, you will be able to display a photo album for your viewers to browse through. This is good for blogs that offer free or ecommerce templates, icons, designs, or photos. This photo album script v2.0 is brought to you by and modified by Blogspot Vision for blogger blogs. The photo album script is ideal for displaying multiple images at once, with links to cycle through additional batches of images.templatedisplayicon

Highlights of script:

  • - Customize the album’s dimensions as desired, such as 3x2 images, 4x5 images, etc.
  • - For each image, specify an optional description, link, and link target.
  • - Script automatically builds navigational links to allow the viewers to cycle between batches of images within the album
  • - Ability to run your own code whenever an image within the album is click on, enabling you to modify the default the behavior when a user clicks on the images, such as load their associated links in a pop up window instead

You will need the following for this tutorial:

<script type="text/javascript">

//Define your own array to hold the photo album images
//Syntax: ["path_to_thumbnail", "opt_image_title", "opt_destinationurl", "opt_linktarget"]

var myvacation=new Array()
myvacation[0]=["../photo1.jpg", "", "photo1-large.jpg"]
myvacation[1]=["photo2.jpg", "Our car", ""]
myvacation[2]=["photo3.jpg", "Our dog", "photo3-large.jpg"]

var thepics=new photogallery(myvacation, 3, 4, '700px', '600px')

//OPTIONAL: Run custom code when an image is clicked on, via "onselectphoto"
//DELETE everything below to disable
//Syntax: function(img, link){}, whereby img points to the image object of the image, and link, its link object, if defined
thepics.onselectphoto=function(img, link){
if (link!=null) //if this image is hyperlinked, "", "width=800, height=600, status=1, resizable=1")
return false //cancel default action when clicking on image, by returning false instead of true
