    xFlow!

    Hi all,

    I would appreciate your peer reviews for my application: xFlow! : A Javascript and PHP based Coverflow style gallery

    The main thread for the application can be found here: http://www.pwhitrow.com/blog/entries...style-gallery/

    All comments appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Paul

    Here is a strait link to a gallery if you don't mind.
    I love it! It takes a little to load JS, but I think it worth it.
    Great job!

    Looks nice to me! I've got no real criticisms on usability or functionality, I'll leave the standards-police to the rest .

    Also as a side note I was browsing what seems to be your custom built blog and I really liked the functionality of it all. Nice work.

    Thanks guys,

    I posted a link to the article as opposed to the direct application as I thought it would be more beneficial for peeps to read a little about it first, but a straight link to xFlow! is also fine so thanks for that.

    Ans thanks for the comments about the main site. Getting a little bored with it now so may look at changing the face of it soon.

    Hi all,

    I've just completed a major overhaul of xFlow!, both front and and back end, so would be grateful for any further feedback.

    So are you not able to call it into your page without stuff like administration screens? That turns me off it very much, given the integration with CMSs I might want to perform.

    Yeah, you can put it where you want. Yiuo can then call the admin pages from where ever you want. Basically, it's been built as a standalone app, which is easy to pull apart and integrate however the developer wishes.

    Hi all,

    xFlow!, my take on a Coverflow style Image and Video gallery, has gone through many changes since I last posted, and felt it was time to share it again.

    Please go to http://xflow.pwhitrow.com if you want to get this latest version. Feature set now is:


    Main features:

    * Creates all thumbnails in PHP to reduce overall Javascript memory requirement (other galleries use Javascript image reflection scripts)
    * Items are aligned in a curved plain to aid perspective affect
    * Items psuedo fade as they move back out of focus
    * Galleries are housed in their own directories for SEO enhancement
    * Each gallery is controlled by an XML file in RSS format to enable linking and following of individual galleries by RSS subscription (example)
    * Import Flickr photo streams
    * Import YouTube video streams
    * A 'sitemap' file is produced (example) using the recognised sitemaps.org protocol for enhanced SEO purposes
    * Images can be watermarked during upload process to make image theft more difficult, and to promote your own work
    * Apply image effects (Sepia, Greyscale) to images
    * Images can be resized during upload
    * Images can be rotated during upload
    * Images or videos can be uploaded from a local source (your machine/device) or a remote location (another website)
    * Other galleries can be displayed as tiny thumbnails or standard links at the bottom
    * Automatically creates a unique favicon for each gallery
    * Built in custom image viewer (NOT Lightbox!)

    * Display items in first to last or last to first order
    * Mouse wheel support in gallery and viewer
    * Lazy loading (preloading) of main images in the background for slick image browsing
    * Individual titles and descriptions for all items
    * Items can be shifted around until you get the order you want
    * Fully customisable gallery options per individual gallery
    * Automaticalley create a gallery from an uploaded ZIP archive of images & videos
    * Automaticalley create a gallery from a directory of images or videos, or a combination of both
    * Language support
    * Easy to re-style with a single style sheet
    * Supports GIF, JPEG and PNG image formats
    * Supports Flash Video (FLV) video format

    Bonus features:

    * xFlow! validates to XHTML 1.0 STRICT
    * xFlow! is compatible with the latest browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome, Safari)
    * xFlow! is built to the latest W3C standards


    Hope you like it,

    Paul
