Save Pictures From a Kodak Gallery Slide Show

One of my sisters recently sent me a link to a photo gallery slide show online at kodakgallery.com. The gallery is in a flash slideshow format where you can scroll through the pictures, etc. I wanted to save a couple of the pictures to my desktop to upload to a personal photo gallery however within the flash application you are unable to right click the image and save it to your desktop. It took me a second to figure out but you can actually save these images to your desktop by exiting the slide show and viewing the images outside of the flash application.

When you are viewing a Kodak Gallery in the slide show format it will look similar to the below.

Simpleviewer Pro: Move Arrows To Each Sides of Thumbnail Rows

SimpleViewer offers a great way to display your photo albums on WordPress combined with NextGen Gallery in an easy to browse format. The arrows display out to the sides of the thumbnails when you only have one row configured however you must have the source code that comes with purchasing the product to modify the source and move the arrows to the sides if you have multiple rows of thumbnails configured. I figure it is worth the money if this is a gallery you are using as it would cost much more in time to develop the gallery yourself.

The default location of the arrows is shown below in the image.

Moving the caption to below the image itself instead of below the thumbnails is easy however you must have the source code that comes with purchasing the product. I figure it is worth the money if this is a gallery you are using as it would cost much more in time to develop the gallery yourself.

The default location of the caption is shown below in the image.
