Hi All,

Is there any way of altering the size of the gallery thumbnails, I need to add 3 logo's to the bottom of my site but they are oblong not square?

Steve hi,

No you can't adjust the shape of the holders of the Yola image gallery. There are tricks but a bit of heavy going. Using a background of the same colour as your site background and no borders. Adjust all images to the same size before including them into the gallery.

You may like to try an alternative such as an image manipulation program. Photoshop of course, Gimp a free download, or various online image manipulators such as picnik. You can then create borders to fit the image and subsequently place the images in a line on your page.

Gop, many thanks for this info, I can use photoshop pretty well but I'm not sure how to get the 3 images in a row, when I try and add a picture it seems to put it by itself with no hope of adding another image to the side of it?

This is something probably really easy I just haven't gotten to grips with the editor yet.

One other thing I was trying to do was cascade the menu items so the pages appear underneath each other in groups so to speak. any ideas?

Re the image gallery:

You may consider creating a collage of the three images in Photoshop and then placing that image. Each apparent image could then be mapped with an image mapping program to create the specific item link to wherever.

Your second idea:

Not something I have ever considered but a good idea and I think others may like to try it as well.

One idea and really just formative without any thinking it through is something like a page flip program or a corner flip insert. I think the corner fflip business is free banner creations and the page flip is an online book creation. I can't remember the names of either of these but a search should find them.

The other idea that comes to mind is really a faux stack whereby you make an image of the corners, bottom(or top) and right hand (or left hand) side of your pages, depending on where you want the offset stack to appear. Place these as images carefully aligned and offset and link each of the sectors of the image to another page. I think you would need to create an image map for this but may be do-able. Image maps are fairly easy to find on the web. I don't keep a library of these I use Google as my library when needed or if I remember I add them as favs :).

If you are into CSS then you could work on CSS positioning and Z-index offsets. If you aren't into it then it does you in for a while but it could work for your project.

Keep these concepts coming. Great stuff!
