The Photo Gallery component is meant to allow CMS Authors the ability to gather a collection of related photos and present them in a lightbox-style presentation. Depending on the column space an author is placing the gallery; there are two gallery styles.
Photos are pulled from the Digital Asset Management system and any pre-defined metadata within the DAM will automatically pre-populate individual photo data fields in the component's dialog edit menus.
Use the Photo Gallery component when you want to highlight a series of related images. When a site viewer clicks a thumbnail image they will see the full size of that image in lightbox mode.
You can use a Photo Gallery in 1-, 2-, and 3-column containers. Although each version has a different look, they share functionality.
Page Layout: When the Photo Gallery component is added into a 1- or 2- column space as defined by a Column Control component, the gallery will display incorrectly and extend beyond the column space. Depending on where the column is located, the gallery may overlap other page content or extend beyond the margin of the five column grid.
Do not insert the Photo Gallery component within 1- or 2- column space created using the Column Control component.
Unable to remove a "new slide" from the list of Photo Gallery of slides. A broken image placeholder appears in the gallery where the new slide is located and attempts to remove the slide cause it to reappear back in it's original location.
To remove a slide it must first have an image associated with it. Afterwards, remove the slide as you would any other slide within the Photo Gallery component.
