Photo galleries are a great way to tell a story or visualise an event. This week I participated in Elearning Hero’s Challenge #84 – Using Image Sliders and Photo Galleries. I was excited to get stuck into this project as I had a few ideas buzzing around in my head. I really wanted to use a slider, one of Storyline 2’s new features. I decided to use wedding imagery, as I thought these are really popular photo galleries and would make great content for this challenge. I got my images from www.freeimages.com.
I saw an example made by Nancy Woinoski, see her example here. In Nancy’s example she used a dual slider, so as well as dragging the slider you could also drag the images along. I thought this was really cool so I decided to give this a go.
In my other example I really wanted to use a grid layout. I was inspired by the site: designspiration.net. I was really pleased with how this one turned out.
