Slideshow Gizmo

What is the Slideshow Gizmo?

The Slideshow gizmo allows you to add multiple images into one location within the content of your portfolio.  You select the images you would like to include and determine the look of the slideshow using the various options available.  Once shared, the slideshow can scroll through the images you selected, displaying them in a unique way.  If the person you shared with clicks on the slideshow, the images are opened in a larger viewer.

 

Creating a Slideshow

Creating a slideshow is very easy.  Simply click on the 'Gizmos' tab at the top of the portfolio editor.   When the 'Gizmo' area opens, click on the 'Slideshow' icon.

Next, click into the content page where you would like the slideshow to appear.  This will place the gizmo in the page and open up the 'Create Slideshow' modal.

Now you can select the images you want to place in the portfolio.

 

Selecting Images for Slideshow

 

For each image selected, you can add a caption by clicking on 'edit' or '[Enter Caption]'.  Type your caption, if desired, and click 'ok' to save it.  If you accidentally clicked on an image or decide you don't want one anymore, click 'remove' to get it out of the list.  When you are satisfied with your images, click on 'Add' to create the slideshow in your portfolio.

 

Editing Slideshow Images

 

Slideshow Editing Options

Once your slideshow is in the portfolio page, you have several other editing options.  Not only can you change it to an image grid or splat, but now you can adjust the size, spacing and borders of the gizmo.  You can access these options by double clicking on the slideshow to open the 'Gizmo Controls'.

 

Slideshow Editing Options

 

At the top of the 'Gizmo' controls, you can switch to a 'Grid' or 'Splat', these are static ways of displaying your images that do not transition between the images as the slideshow does.  Check out the Grid Gizmo and Splat Gizmo pages for more information on each of these. In this area of the gizmo, you can also change the pictures that are shown and completely remove the slideshow from the page.

 

In the 'Slideshow' options, you can set the type of transition, if or how the images will change, whether the image number will be displayed, and how the images are displayed.  There are 11 different transition options for moving between images.

 

Slideshow Controls

 

The 'Outer Spacing' options allow you to set the margin around the gizmo, move the gizmo to the edge of its alotted space, and wrap text around the gizmo, if it is placed inside a paragraph.

 

You can also create a border around the slideshow using the 'Gizmo Border' options.  Here, you can choose the border size (this has to be done before the other options are made available), color, style, and determine the padding between the images and the border.
