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.
