20+ Hardware-Accelerated CSS3 slide transitions types are selectable by the viewer and animated thumbnails in a zoom in / out transition are used if you open or close the light-box, Several transition types are demonstrated in the styles/transitions sample albums.
Almost all index page features as used in the FancyBox skin are also used in the LightGallery skin, but the Cylindrical and Spherical panorama photo viewers are not available in the LightGallery skin. However the panorama settings panel can still be used to generate extra large image sizes for panorama pictures, which allows you the inspect the panorama in the light-box via zoom and pan.
The flexible slide descriptions below the slide image and in a side panel as used in FancyBox are also available in the LightBox skin.
If GPS information is available in a photo, the location can be displayed in Google Maps.
Use my program MakeMap to make a survey of the photo locations to display in a Google Maps or Google Earth map with links to the slide pages.
The slide page can be embedded in a web-page without the use of an iframe or JSON data.
Open the LightGallery sample albums to see what is possible with this new skin.
The lightGallery library used in this skin is a free and open-source library, however a commercial LightGallery license is required if you are using the skin for business, commercial sites, projects, and applications. We have permission of the lightGallery designer Sachin Neravath to use it without a license fee for non-commercial jAlbum users. More information on the “About” tab.
The viewer and user documentation is not yet completely ready.
Don't use trade names, or the name of any of the third-party scripts you are using in the skin. For example, if you're using the greatstuff.js script, don't name the skin GreatStuff. This can lead to copyright and license violation problems, both for you and for jAlbum. Even if the script is open source and has a completely free license, this should still be avoided, even if the script author gives his permission. This kind of naming causes user confusion. People looking for the greatstuff.js script can inadvertently land on the jAlbum site, and are then puzzled about why they can't get the greatstuff.js script here.
You are kidding: $25 / lifetime as you can read in the pricing list
$25 is for personal use. To me that didn't sound like commercial use. But maybe it is.
That pricing page doesn't fit a user of a skin of jAlbum. It's for developers that want to use the library in their own product. So it's a bit confusing.
The LightGallery skin has been updated to version 1.0.1 with the following changes:
The text of check-box 'Skip index page' has been changed into 'Skip thumbnails pages'.
Audio control width enlarged to 250px to show the mute symbol.
The background color of the slide-show progress bar is now transparent.
Much code will be removed from file index.htm(l) if both check-marks 'Skip thumbnails pages' and 'Use LightGallery-placeholder' have been set and slidePage options ' Show location button' and 'Show Share window button' have not been set. You may set 'Show location button', but only if you set also 'Show location in a new tab ...'. This makes it easier to embedded a light-box in a an existing web page without iframes or JSON data, see my homepage www.andrewolff.nl.
If check-mark 'Hide navigation arrows on mobile devices' is set, these buttons are now also hidden on an iPad.
