Picture perfect ...
Bring your images to life with the most powerful, feature-rich image gallery solution available for Dreamweaver: Image Gallery Magic by PVII - the leader in creative Dreamweaver extensions. Create image galleries from inside Dreamweaver - in Windows or OS X. Image Gallery Magic can create the entire layout for you or you can insert a gallery into an existing page. While Image Gallery Magic is powered by thoroughly modern CSS and DOM Scripting, we've taken great pains to ensure that your gallery will work in all modern browsers (on all operating systems) and some key older browsers, such as IE5.x (Windows and OS X).

Sets the standard for quality, ease, and power
Full-Size Images are loaded on demand without page refreshing
Automatic optimizing and scaling of original images...
even from your digital camera
Web-ready images are automatically produced from your original images, which can be located on any drive connected to your computer - including drives mounted by your digital camera. Image Gallery Magic handles all image processing automatically - preserving your original files in their original locations in their original, unaltered states. Choose the size of your thumbnails and your full-size images and they are processed: scaled, optimized, and neatly organized in folders within your defined site.
Use Fireworks, Photoshop, or other editors...
While iGM makes quick work of existing images you've processed yourself in Photoshop, PSP, or any other image editor, Fireworks users benefit from total and seamless interoperability. Simply point iGM at a folder of images anywhere on your system - or to your Digital Camera's mounted drive - and sit back and relax as your images are automatically scaled and optimized to your own specifications - using the Fireworks engine. iGM will create both your full-size and your thumbnail images - automatically. The size of your originals does not matter. They can be 1 megapixel, or 10 megapixels.
Once your images are processed, and your gallery built, you can use the Edit buttons in the iGM interface, at any time, to load your images into Fireworks for further processing.
If, however, you use another image editor, such as Photoshop, you can process your thumbnails and full-size images first, then use Image Gallery Magic's interface to locate your full-size images, associate them with their related thumbnails, and build your gallery. The edit controls in iGM will load your images, for further processing, into the image editing application you have set as default in your Dreamweaver preferences.
No aspect ratio is ever harmed...
your images can vary in size or orientation
When Image Gallery Magic processes your images, they are never distorted in any way. Original aspect ratios are always preserved. In other words, your thumbnails and full-size images keep their natural proportions and are not foced to be the same size. Many gallery applications are not so kind to your images. We know how important your images are to you and would never dream of forcing you to live with that kind of limitation. All of your thumbnails and all of your full-size images always maintain their natural aspect ratios and orientations.
Select from 6 professionally designed layouts...
or insert your gallery into an existing layout
Image Gallery Magic comes with a built-in PVII Page Pack™ engine, fueled with 6 gorgeous layouts that you can create with one-click ease. Once your page is created, the Image Gallery Magic system launches, enabling you to select and process images to complete your gallery. And because styling is CSS-driven, you have full control over the look and feel of your gallery.
Captions and descriptions and counters, oh my!
Image Gallery Magic allows you to mange image captions, descriptions, and even to include an image counter - right from the comfort and convenience of the iGM User Interface window.
Bring your images to life...
in a gallery that is alive with interactivity
iGM thumnails are presented in horizontal rows. You choose the number of thumbnails per row and we provide smooth-glide scrolling between rows with automatically numbered links to each row. If that's not cool enough, you can choose from 42 ways to animate the appearance of your full-size images. 40 of these effects utilize efficient Direct-X, which is supported by IE5.5, IE6, and IE7 on Windows. Other browsers will automatically use a cool fly-in effect powered by modern DOM scripting.
Manage it all from within a dedicated window
All aspects of your gallery are managed from within the iGM user interface window.
