Well, with the introduction of the new VScroll in the past few days, I’ve knuckled down into getting my original Horizontal Scroll gallery into Lua and with more control. While Lua Galleries are a whole new learning curve after busting through XSLT, they’re very powerful. An understanding of CSS can lead to have a great deal of control in the gallery settings. Building the galleries is not overly difficult. It’s very logical, but time consuming as you’ve no true debugger and it’s a game of “will Lightroom ignore the gallery”, because there’s a missing comma somewhere. Enough of the gallery building talk.
HScrollLua 1.0 is a horizontal scrolling gallery. It’s a single page gallery with all the image appearing on one page. No thumbnails, just the preview sized photos.
To install the gallery, you need to go to User/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Lightroom, (On XP got o C:Documents and SettingsUserApplication DataAdobeLightroom -Note that Application Data is a hidden folder, on Vista C:UsersUserAppDataRoamingAdobeLightroom ) where User is the name you log in with. Look for a folder called Web Galleries within. If it’s not there, create it yourself. Unzip the file into this folder and restart Lightroom.
The new Gallery will apppear in the Right Hand Panel, in the Galleries Pane.
I recommend that you create an alias/shortcut to this Lightroom folder for future use.
