This post is simply to provide a reference point for post tags associated with the FlashViewer apps within NextGen Gallery. I typically post using TiltViewer so I always forget exactly what the tags are when I am posting with SimpleViewer, AutoViewer, or PostcardViewer. Below is a listing of all four of the FlashViewer types and what the specific different tag options mean.

I have been playing around with Tiltview for the past couple of days which is an addition to a WordPress plugin called NextGen FlashViewer. Let me start by saying that even though I had a couple problems when starting out the combination of NextGen Gallery, NextGen Flashviewer, and Tiltview is one of the coolest combinations I have seen. It actually is fairly easy to get going and surprisingly when configured properly is not a huge CPU and memory hog. If you have configuration errors as mentioned below it can clearly be a PC resource monster. You definitely can see it taking up some memory but most client PC’s have plenty to handle Tiltview style applications these days. If you have something configured incorrectly as I mention below it wil easily crash browsers and possibly lock up the entire PC. My 1.8 GHz Windows XP laptop with 2GB of RAM was on its knees begging for mercy during troubleshooting the issues I explain below.

I was a bit furstrated last night when I tried to install the flash templates from paulvanroekel.nl because the installer was telling me it was completed yet I could not find the templatebs. After trying to figure it out for a bit I went back to the site and noticed I had missed the install instructions at the top right of the download page. I seem to like to jump into things and forget to read instructions a lot!

It turns out the installer is for Picasa 2.x and Google has decided to change folder locations in the Picasa 3.x versions. Now instead of being on your primary drive under Program Files >> Picasa the application is now located in C:\Program Files >> Google >> Picasa3. So if you end up running the installer you can just copy the files from C:\Program Files\Picasa2\web\templates to C:\Program Files\Google\Picasa3\web\templates and the new templates will show next time you export a folder or a single photo to HTML via the Picasa interface.

The collection of templates includes 19 in all including simpleviewer, tiltviewer, imageflow, highslide, lightbox, thickbox, and more. All of them are cool in there own way and can be viewed here.
