Photo Albums

The Photo Album extension for Contao Open Source CMS provides photo albums functionality for your website’s photo album(s) by using the outstanding gallery presentation jQuery plugin lightGallery.

The Photo Album extension is easy to install and effortless to use; it’s the flexible solution for all of your photo gallery needs. You’ll be able to create galleries and portfolios and sort them into categories. Viewers will be able to zoom in and also download your images; with more than 30 transition types between images you have plenty of options for customization. Both Pager and thumbnails are included, cross-browser and fully responsive solution, URL hash change support, autoplay and fullscreen support, and every aspect of this extension is supported by excellent lightGallery script with multiple plugins.

More Personalization Options

Every album/portfolio can be assigned a teaser with text and a dedicated teaser image. A details page holds your description for the album and images are manually sortable within each album. The album feature supports single files, folders, or both mixed as image source. Also provided is support for the image meta data (title and caption).

Flexible Frontend Modules

The Photo Album extension allows you to choose the desired categories to display in the frontend modules settings. It also allows for a configurable list of enabled gallery plugins, including: autoplay, full screen, hash, page, thumbnail, and zoom. You select choose various sort orders and pagination for your images.

Also included are configurable default gallery features like image download, infinite loop, gallery controls and the images counter. Further adaptability is provided by custom templates for all frontend modules, and you’ll also have support for the Contao responsive images feature.

Selected album as content element

In addition to frontend modules, you can also use a single content element to display a manually selected photo album. This gives you a flexibility to include albums in various parts of your website.

PHOTO ALBUMS is the most complete contao solution for portfolio websites I know. Create new pages/collections of photos with a description with ease. The lightbox in use "lightGallery" is pretty cool. Perfectly for use on mobile devices. For me this is the fastest way to build up artists / photographer websites.
