More Options for Panorama?

I'm thinking to add a small number of customization options for captions in the Theater's new panorama presentation.

Any other requests?

perhaps an option to add a separation line between multiple panorama images below the caption

Re: More Options for Panorama?

Hi Matt,

First, thanks for bringing the panorama option back! I am still seeing that pink background behind any displayed caption text - can that go away soon, please? (I'm using TTG-Publisher version created 6/12/2019 in Lightroom, Backlight v.2.0.10, so I think I'm current)

Also a feature request: can you add an option for the gallery to display each pano on its own page (or better yet, let the user choose between this & the way it works now, with all panos on one page)? This might necessitate a gallery page, with previews of all the panos (much like a regular gallery index page)? It wouldn't have to work like it did in CE4 Stage, with the cropped versions, instead I'd be satisfied with tiny thumbnails for the index page...

What do you think?

Thanks,

John

Re: More Options for Panorama?

For the pink background, if you don’t want to wait for the update, you can address it with custom css

For the other, you’ll probably need to create an individual album for each image and put those albums in their own album set

Hi Rod,

Thanks for the info. I will check out the custom css approach. On the workaround for the other (each pano in its own album), would I lose the "thumbnails"/preview?

No need to respond yet - I'll go to work on it & see what I can come up with.

No, those would appear in the album set.

Re: More Options for Panorama?

Here’s an example of Rod’s idea implemented.  More work but I do like it better than having them all on one page.  https://terrancealexander.com/galleries … panoramas/

Re: More Options for Panorama?

Rod's suggestion above, for using the Album Set as a thumbnail grid for panos, is the correct approach. This is in line with how all of the other presentation methods work, and plays nice with Lightroom's Publish Services.

It might work to create a separate presentation type for a grid-based gallery, but I'm not sure it would be worthwhile, and I would need to accommodate for galleries of mixed pano and non-pano images.
