Here we've assembled some hints and tips that we think you'll find useful as you create your Online Photo Gallery.
Enhancing and Cropping your Photos
Very rarely are your photos perfect. At times you may wish to crop them or brighten them or even rotate them. ZyWeb can do all this for you. When in the FileStore click on the box next to the photo you would like to edit and from the Actions panel, choose Edit. This will take you to the Photo Editor where you can perform a wide range of tasks to improve or alter your photo ready for your web pages. You can crop margins and change the, contrast, quality, brightness, sharpness or size of the image. Don't worry if you have scanned the photo in upside down or sideways. You can and also change the orientation by using the Rotation tool.
Photos to go on your web pages should be either in a JPG or JPEG format. For the best results we recommend they are scanned between 50dpi and 100dpi and should not be more than 90K each.
Framing your Photos on your Web Page
You can make your photos a feature on your web page by highlighting it with a photo frame. When you are editing a web page, simply select the Insert new drop-down menu. Select image and then above or below (whichever is appropriate). In the Image Picker list, select the option Use frames to display photos.
You will be offered a range of Picture frames from which to choose and then select OK. ZyWeb automatically frames the image on your page within your picture frame.
To change the default photo displayed in the frame to one of your own click on Change Style to take you to the Image Picker. Then choose one of these image types. Any photos previously uploaded to your FileStore will be displayed. Click on the photo you want to insert and it is now inserted onto your web page within your Picture Frame.
