Gallery Preview Thumbnail

Post by Ink8455 » Tue Jun 12, 2018 8:19 am

Is it possible to add a preview thumbnail to a gallery icon in the Pano?

I've tried adding a hotspot_preview to the gallery skin but to no avail.
I can generate a white preview box but with no content.

My still images have a sucessful preview thumbnail.


Properties
Type: URL
SkinID: gallery
Title:
Description:
LinkTargetURL:
Target: images\ABC.JPG

image in the images folder

Hi,
Please explain more, will this preview image be part of a point hotspot Gallery icon?
If so will the image change depending on the hotspot?

Will the galley icon be a button in a toolbar?
Again will it have to change or would you only need the one image?

The preview image, I take it will not be any of the panos, so an image created outside of Pano2VR.
Need to understand what you are doing.
Regards,
Hopki

In my pano I have numerous hotspots, still images and galleries.

Each still image has a preview thumbnail which appears when you hover the mouse pointer over the still image icon.

The still image is linked to a preview image and is unique. i.e I can have a mulitude of still images around the screen, each opening a different image. Each preview is linked to that image.


The still image for the preview thumbnail is selected by adding images\abc123.jpg in the Target: under properties.



My black gallery icon has no preview thumnail.
I'd like a thumbnail preview linked to an image in my images folder (images\abc123.jpg) as per still images icon, which will have all the features of the still image preview thumbnail. i.e when you hover over the black gallery icon the preview thumnail box will appear with a chosen image.
Each gallery will have a unique image linked to open as a thumbnail.
So far I've tried adding a hotspot_preview to the gallery skin but to no avail.
All I get is a white preview thumbnail box but no contents.

My pano has multiple still images and galleries.
So, when I move from one hotspot to another, I have still image, gallery and movie icons throughout.
Each gallery has a unique number.
So in one screen, I have an icon associated with gallery00. gallery00 is stored in my output folder and has a number of images inside, named img_00 onwards.
There may be many galleries per screen, gallery01, gallery02 etc and these can be included on other screens.

I'd like each gallery to have a specific preview thumbnail image to indicate which gallery or what is contained within that particular gallery.


Does that make sense?

My apologies in advance, i know what I want to do but....... my explanation may leave a lot to be desired!!!!!!!

These are gallery and image hotspots in my skin. The ht image hotspot works perfectly.

Another example.

Hover over the ht_image and a preview thumbnail box appears.
The attachment IMG_2537.jpg is no longer available
Click on the icon and a full size image appears.
