Hi guys! Haven't posted a question for a while...thought it was about time


I need a really good looking but easy and manageable web gallery software, which I can upload to the domain that I own, not an external site. Free is preferable, and I'm basically not going to use anything that isn't, I can't afford it...

I thought I had found this with JAlbum and bananalbum in conjunction, and this worked fine, I uploaded a sample gallery of those isabella plantation pics to here, (sorry for linking, but seeing as I'm not promoting a site, and I need to people to see it, can you leave it pleeeease?).
As you can see it is all very nicely presented, and easily manageable, but look at the photos! They have been downsized to 30kb, and look terrible (IMO), with artefacts. I tried looking for a preference setting to stop it doing that (they are already downsized to the pixalo 200kb limit, which is fine for website display), but to no avail.

Does anyone know either how to change this and stop it from happening, or another software which is easy to use but doesn't do this? Any recommendations on what people use would be great too.


Thanks guys!

Jack M


[edit: I'm more stuipd than I thought....I worked it out, there is a preference... ] Sorry!

Re: Galleries

Here's one for you Jack :

* Arachnophilia

I used to use it some years ago + loved it. Assuming it still works the same way, you can use it as a wysiwyg or insert your own html code, or even a combination of the two methods.

Best of all, it's FREE!

Edit: Glad you sorted the problem out Jack - I just noticed your edit - maybe you'd like to take a look at Arachnophilia anyway

* Steve - maybe you'd like to take a look at this one, to see if you want to add it to your downloads section?

Re: Galleries

Thanks Charlotte, did have a look. Looks useful, and very good at management. May have a go with that if this doesn't work out. Am uploading as we (sort of) speak, so may find a way to show people, without getting told off by a mod

Re: Galleries

Jack, just put the link in your signature

But to display it, you'll have to type a longish post, so that your signature is displayed

Try : "Blah blah blah blah blah" etc.

Re: Galleries

Yeah fair enough, but I woud like to make a thread really, so I can ask people if they find certain things instrusive or annoying, and stuff.
Hey mods, if you don't let me, I'll go back to that other site. {Edit: Maybe kicking and screaming.......I've left your link in - don't push it! :-)} (just joking...well....)

Re: Galleries

Jack, you can make a thread, but not put a link to a personal site in the body of a post, it must be in your signature. You could still refer to it in the thread + ask for comments. I believe this is the only way to do what you want to do here

Thanks for the link to Arachnophilia, Charlotte I've popped it into the Downloads section and given you some rep.

Edit....when I've spread some around a bit :-)

Re: Galleries

There really is no issue here...

Add the site to our members website list and also to your signature. Not only will everyone be able to see it with our other members websites but it will appear under at least one of your posts (if long enough) in each thread that you reply to.

If you are starting a thread on your own site and requesting advice, help or feedback on it's design, layout, ease of use etc then you will easy exceed the 'trigger' value and your signature will be displayed...all you need to do to get people to visit is state that the link is in your signature

Believe it or not we did not introduce this rule to be awkward, we did it to keep links organised and retain our page rank...which in turn helps our genuine members who post here and list their sites legitimately. We get an higher page rank by limiting the number of outgoing links and you (with your allowed links in both your signature and members website list) gain from our increased page rank being shared with the few that deserve it.

It really is a win/win situation and shouldn't restrict or reduce your ability to get genuine help or advice on Pixalo.

I completely understand and agree with the rule, that's not an issue, I was just wondering how I could direct people to see it, but kind of forgot about putting it in my sig..,
Thanks for the info though!
