Managing Projects

If you need to show­case anoth­er kind of works that needs some text to go along with your images and videos, projects may be the per­fect choice for you. In this arti­cle, we will explain the main work­flow of adding and cus­tomiz­ing a project. You can add new projects from Projects →  Add New page.

Adding images

All you have to do in order to enrich your project with images is to click on Add Image and a modal win­dow will show up (the Media Uploader). Here you can Drag & Drop images from your com­put­er or add already uploaded images to the project

*Note: In the same modal win­dow, after adding images you can drag & drop them to change their order.

Projects Specific Options

When creating/editing a project, under the edi­tor pan­el and the Project Gallery you have a series of set­tings that allow you to con­trol the slideshow (each project dis­plays its gallery in the form of a slid­er) and some infor­ma­tion like client name or client link.

  • Image Scal­ing — Allows you to con­trol how we will lay­out the images in the giv­en screen space of the slid­er. The Fill set­ting will stretch and crop your images to com­plete­ly fill the space. The Fit option will shrink your images the com­plete­ly fit in space with­out any crop­ping, but with emp­ty spaces;
  • Slid­er Height Ratio —It helps you to set the height ratio for the slid­er.
  • Slid­er Tran­si­tion — Allows you choose whether the slides will move or fade when going to the next or pre­vi­ous slide;
  • Slid­er Auto­play — Allows you to set the slid­er to auto­mat­i­cal­ly start when load­ing the page. Once acti­vat­ed you have the option of set­ting the Auto­play Delay Between Slides (in mil­lisec­onds);
  • Exclude From Archives.

Adding Videos to a Project

Every image from the project slid­er can behave as a hold­er of a YouTube or Vimeo video.

From the edit gallery modal win­dow, when select­ing an image, an option­al Video URL input field will appear in the right side­bar. There you can paste a YouTube/Vimeo link along with choos­ing if you want to Enable Video Auto­play option.

This is all about cre­at­ing projects. We hope you enjoy the tools we have devised to help you beau­ti­ful­ly show­case your awe­some cre­ations.
