A la peanut butter sandwiches...

With a little help from The Amazing Mumford, we've updated the existing Photo Gallery widgets and added a really sweet new Simple Gallery! We also added Image Captions so you can add your creative magic to naming and describing your images!




New Simple Gallery

The Simple Gallery pretty much describes itself, but it has an unlimited number of uses. It displays a single image with no thumbnails and offers tons of options. One of the coolest things about this new gallery is the images are linkable! Here are three cool ways you can use this new gallery...but we're sure you'll think of more!

1. Works awesome as an auto-rotating image in banners
2. A Gallery landing page can now have rotating images from each individual gallery, and still link to the the Slideshow or page with the full screen gallery.
3. Cool way to highlight "other people" on your website and link out to their website








Display Gallery Timing Update

We had received feedback the images in the Gallery Display were not always transitioning smoothly, so the dev team did some magic and "POOF"...it's all good now. (I'm pretty sure technically that's exactly how it happens...)

Unlisted SmugMug Gallery Support
And by popular demand we performed a special trick which allows you to link to Unlisted SmugMug Galleries! You'll need click the "Login" button and then "Authorize SmugMug" to allow Showit to access your SmugMug account. All your unlisted images magically appear.














Add Captions to Your Images

Now you can and words to your photos! WORD!

Create Captions for the images in your Photo Galleries. Your Captions show up by creating a Text Area that links to your Gallery channel, and automatically transitions the text with images when viewing your page.

I'm beginning to hyperventilate with all the cool things your adding to Showit Sites. Would somebody give me a paper bag please? - M.J.
