A gallery/slideshow product for plone that can aggregate from picasa and flickr or use plone images
collective.plonetruegallery is a Plone product that implements a very customizable and sophisticated gallery. It allows you to add regular Plone Galleries, Picasa Web Albums or even Flickr sets.

collective.plonetruegallery will also allows the user to display the gallery in 3 different sizes, choose between two different javascript gallery display types and customize transitions, effects, and timing.

How It Works

All you need to do is select the Gallery View from the Display drop down item for any Folder or Collection content type. Once that is done, a Gallery Settings tab is enabled for the type. With this, you can customize the various settings for the Gallery.


these packages are no longer a dependency of this package

to add support for these type of galleries you must install additional packages

install flickrapi version 1.2 or higher for flickr support

install gdata version 1.2.3 or higher for Picasa Web Album Support

these can just be added to your buildout or installed with easy_install or you can add the package to your egg section like.
