Today we want to share some secrets with you. Last few months, we are working with new version of our Joomla Gallery component - Gallery 2.0. Gallery 2.0 it's not just a new update, it's a new stage of all our Joomla extensions. Let's look what we have already done!
Bellow you can see the first mockup, which was presented to our followers at Social networks.
What the Gallery 2.0 will include?! The main thrust we made on the possibility to create more biggest galleries with great number of pictures and unlimited number of categories and subcategories.
Thereby, we spent a lot of time to improve the speed of the gallery in the admin panel and also on the front of the site.
As the result of the possibility to create an unlimited amount of subcategories, we have changed the Admin User Interface.
But we have changed not only the UI, but also design, the gallery will be present for you in Google Material Design.
The design will be much easier and more intuitive, allowing you to quickly create beautiful Galleries.
Using the context menu, you can quickly manage the gallery, upload images, move images between folders, create new categories.
Almost all elements of the gallery have a tooltips what makes the gallery a more friendly for beginners.
We have a new media manager! With the new media manager, you will be able to manage pictures more effectively. You can create / rename the folders, move pictures.
You have full control over the folder. Using the context menu, you can create, rename and move folders. It is incredibly easy and quick!
You can easily move images between folders.
If you need to move only one image, you can use Drag and Drop feature.
The context menu opens up incredible opportunities. Very handy tool.
