Good news for all: UGAL was just updated with new ways to display your photos, including a "zoom" option.
New display options in the Photos tab
The Photos tab is available for all the pages of your website and allows to attach one or more photos to the page. You had up to now the option to display those photos in a slideshow (small, medium or large). UGAL introduces today 2 new ways to display your photos:
- On the page - the photos (either small, medium or large) are listed at the bottom of the page.
- In a zoom - medium or large.
The simplest zoom on the web
We were looking for a simple and elegant solution. The zoom we have implemented does not require any mouse click or new window to open. When the mouse hovers over the photo, the large version is shown in the background, and you "inspect" it by simply moving your mouse around. An example is shown at the bottom of this page.
Ou standard CSS themes have all been updated to support the zooms. If you use a custom theme and are interested in the zooms, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the instructions (a few lines of CSS code) for making them work on your website.
