Creating web galleries

Being able to put your images on the web is the nicest way to share your pictures with family and friends. In cam2pc you have two different ways to create a web gallery:

  • Instant Web Gallery: creates web galleries based on predefined templates. The number of parameters you can change is very limited.
  • Custom Web Gallery: create web galleries that fit your needs precisely. Everything is customizable so that your web gallery nicely integrates in your web design.

When you open the Instant Web Gallery dialog the first thing to do is to choose the style of gallery you want to use. You can browse through the styles and watch the preview to make your choice. Also do not forget to check this page to see if more styles are available.

Once you have chosen your style, you have to tell cam2pc where it shoudl create the gallery. Pick any folder as the root folder and then give a site folder name: cam2pc will create a subfolder using that name in the root folder you specified. For instance if you chose "C:\My Documents" as the root and you type "My Gallery" in the site folder then the gallery will be created in "C:\My Documents\My Gallery".

Next give a title to the gallery. This will be used in all the pages.

The rest of the options are self explanatory: slideshow, thumbnails size and image size. The gallery creation does not take luch time so do not hesitate to play with those settings.

The color options might not be available for all styles. Styles with a background image for instance do not allow you to change the colors so that everything stays readable.


You should really use this feature if you know what you are doing and have some knowledge of HTML. If you do so, most of the options here will appear clear to you so I am only going to give details on some of them.

    General tab

      Gallery title: you have the option to display this title in the indexes pages of your gallery. It will also be used to create the <TITLE> tag of all the pages of your gallery.

      Home URL: will be used for the Home button that can appear in the navigation bar that you can display in index and image pages.

      Colors: define the colors of the page but will also be used to create the drop shadow effect if you choose to have one.

    Images tab

      Sizes: this define how thumbnails and images will be created. The size specified corresponds to the size of the largest dimension. There is no way in cam2pc to break the aspect ratio of your images.

    Index 2 tab

      Use template: you can have cam2pc create the index embedded directly into your page. This also to create web galleries that match your web design without any hassle. For this, prepare a page a put a dummy <cam2pcIndex> tag wherever you want to the index to appear. cam2pc will parse your template and keep all the other HTML code simply replacing this tag by the code for the index. You can also put the <cam2pcTitle> to put the gallery title.

    Pages tab

      Use template: this works exactly the same as the template for indexes. Of course, you can use a separate template for index and image pages. The dummy tag to use here is <cam2pcImage>.
