Image viewer

An image viewer displays your thumbnails gallery's images in full size.


You can define settings for the image viewer, such as: 

  1. Image viewer template (see below)
  2. Text position: defines the position of the image description. You can choose between Bottom, Right or Show on hover.
  3. Effect: defines the transition effect between images. You can choose between Fade and Slide.
  4. Timing in ms: defines how long an image will display before switching to the next one automatically.
  5. Pause timing: allows you to pause the timing. The viewer will have to click to see the next image. 
  6. Cover or contain: displays only for fullscreen template and defines if the image should cover the screen or be contained. If you choose Cover, the image will cover the screen and may be truncated. If you choose Contain, the image will display fully but won't cover the entire screen.
