Hello,
this is my first attempt in offering a plugin for Coppermine, so if you find any bugs/errors/mistakes I'm sorry, but I will try to correct everything you find :)

Today i looked into Coppermines plugin-architecture and thought, ok, do it.  ;D

What I did?

First, a good idea is to see it in action. If you have flash 9 or higher installed, Coppermine won't show you the "normal" intermediate image, but an embedded flash-application showing it.
A click on it, and you're in flash's fullscreen-mode viewing the photo on black.

click here to visit my gallery and see the plugin in action

The swf shows the actual image. It will be resized to the screen size, in case it's too large, a click shows a 100%-view. Otherwise the image is centered.
 If you move the mouse to the top, a bar will appear offering some (self-explanatory) buttons to navigate, background-colors, thumbnails of the current album and a slideshow. Uh, and you are allowed to close it, of course :D
If the visitor does not use a flash-enabled browser he will see the normal intermediate picture.

The plugin uses swfobject to embed the swf-file. It's included in the zip.

Warning!!!
  • This is the first release, so please try this with a test-system or backup first!
  • The swf coming with the plugin (fsdia.swf) is my work and (for now) not available as source-code. If you have any suggestions, how to improve it, feel free to tell me.
  • the slideshow-feature is buggy, i know that, but hadn't the time to fix it.
  • it works with images only! I did not try any other media with it, won't work afaik

To-Do (my wish list ;))
  • fix the slideshow-feature
  • make it much more customizable, colors, text (German right now) ...
  • hide the image urls completely from the  html-source (i'm thinkin of a password defined by the admin to rename full-size images) and prevent stealing of high-res images this way
Anyway, using flash (you can completely disable the normal intermediate image btw), 90% of those "right-click-save-as"-thief's are stopped, i think :D


So, I hope you like it, and that it works...

attached the zip to this post.

have fun

  • Hello World :-)

Andreas,

Do you have a direct Link to your slideshow ?
Because without any German language in my head, it's difficult to find and see your work in action  ;)

Thanx for all of us who do'nt speak Göthe.

Well,
no one interested, eh?  ;D

Anyway, as programming is relaxing for me, you can think of what i did in the last nights... yes, i relaxed and a new version is coming... not today, but:
it speaks english than, and nearly any other language, as it is using an xml-config file... (and you provide a translation :D)

a screenshot is all i can provide right now :)

still hoping anyone is interested  ;)

Uh,
thank you Vincs :)

Here is a sneak preview to the version coming... it's not running inside coppermine gallery, but it will be, when i release it.

- It uses now "true" smooth resizing in fullscreen-mode. This works quite good, and you don't have to care of image sizes anymore... well, they still look best in there original size, but there are a lot of different Screen-resolutions out there ;)
- new Thumbnail-View
- new Nav-Box on the right side (Thumbs, Next, Back for now)
- the intermediate image will have arrows to navigate inside coppermine, too. (as you see in the preview)

NOTE: this version can be buggy, I wanted to show you the upcoming version.

I hope someone is interested in this, will be happy to here from you guys

This plugin looks very promising.  I use my site for business, so I will be monitoring your progress for a while before I install it (still setting up my coppermine gallery as well).  Thanks for working on this for all of us.

Well,
it's good to hear, you like what you see there :)

But I was very busy (sister's marriage) and sick the last two weeks, that you'll have to wait... :(

I still have some ideas that I want to implement (integrated flv-player for example), but i will update this thread with news and previews. So stay tuned  ;)

Hi,
a new demo can be tested here:

http://makrograf.com/dev/beta/bin/index.php?id=1

The nav-buttons in the preview are working now, the slideshow feature works, and there are no more visible URLs to the images in the html-source. The coppermine plugin will later generate the xml with the image-information for the app at runtime...

Thanx

Is there a way to remove the ? (question mark) inside the slideshow? I don't want guests on my site to see this. Also, is there a way to make a link let's say next to an album in an album view and have a direct link to full screen slideshow of that album?

Seems great to me. Will it be possible to change backgroundcolour in full screen flash modus in another colour than black? I'd prefer grey for exampel.

Hello,

The last link does not work for me either.  One suggestion when it works fully.  There must be an easy way to go back to the "original page" -- for example, when the viewer clicks on the screen the previous site shows up,  just like what happens with CPG now when you click on the largest "pop up" image.


Here are some other suggestions, apart from a full screen, a more important application would be the ability to embed this plugin to a text site, such as a file in Joomla, for example.  The "full screen" functionality would be applied more by  the ability of the image to occupy the full width of any "module" e.g.,  that of a column.

Uhhh,
sorry guys, forgot to answer and did not see the new posts..

There are two versions of this programm... the old one i offered as a plugin (should work, for me it does) and a new one, called maxiMEE from now on ;)

I showed you a demo of it.

maxiMEE will be running stand alone AND as a coppermine plugin. The plugin makes use of CPMfetch, as i changed the whole structure of the program. It uses XML generated at runtime (this will be the part you need CPMfetch).

Sadly, i don't have much time atm, so the Plugin is still not finished.
But the development of the program itself is on a good way to be "releaseable".


Ok, here are the features
  • runs stand alone or inside Coppermine via plugin
  • resizing of large images to fit the screen is smooth now
  • click the image to hide everything except the image, of course ;)
  • the program has theme support, you can change colors, icons and fonts (the icons as long as you can provide vector-graphics as swf-files)
  • watermark-option to prevent stealing images in fullscreen-mode. In the preview above it's a link, you decide what's in there
  • slideshow (as before)
  • previous/next-buttons in flash when viewing intermediate image
  • new thumbnail-view

ok, thats all for now...

any suggestions?
