You may have noticed some of our tour apps have photo galleries that rotate automatically and can also be swiped. These were beta users of our Photo Gallery widget and we’re happy to announce that it is now available in the App Builder for TourSphere Pro accounts.
What is the Photo Gallery widget?
The Photo Gallery widget allows you to add multiple photos to a single page in one image carrier. Think of it as a responsive slideshow that gives users access to multiple photos on a single page without scrolling. You can set the gallery to auto rotate, adjust the timing of the rotation, or let users swipe to the next image. You can even use the gallery to add sponsor logos to specific stops on your tour.
How do you add a Photo Gallery to your tour?
Use our web-based mobile App Builder to create a Photo Gallery on a page-by-page basis. You must be in a project created with TourSphere Pro. You’ll find a new widget under the Add Widget menu. Once you click to add the widget to the page, the Photo Gallery editor will open up. Upload photos from your computer directly into the gallery, or drag images from the Library to the Image section on the right. Click the Show Options button to set the auto-rotatation and speed.
A few thoughts to remember about the Photo Gallery:
1) The gallery looks best when all the images have the same dimensions. 2) In the widget editor, drag and drop the thumbnails to re-order the images. 3) If you don’t have a Pro account, you can still take the widget for a test drive by creating a new project from your Dashboard and selecting Pro.
