[Nextgen Gallery] Slideshow should load thumbnails instead of full image (5 posts)

    Hi there.

    Our images are really big. (About 3508 x 2480 pixel!) So the slideshow needs a long time to load the next images.

    We are also using Nextgen to create thumbnails with a size about 600 x 450 pixels. And here is the point. How can I tell the slideshow, that it should only load the created thumbnails instead of the full sized image?

    Any ideas? Thanks and best greetings. =)

    There is no out of the box solution, you need to change the code in this case... Require PHP knowledge

    Hi Alex,

    thanks for your answer. Btw a great plugin, really nice work.

    Ok, that's not too bad. But can you tell me on which php file I should look for?

    Thanks and best greetings. ;)

    I just had a similar situation, although my large photos are not anywhere near as large as yours are, so don't know if this will work for you. My low-tech solution was to add the thumbnail widths to the slideshow css - specifically .ngg-imagebrowser and .ngg-imagebrowser img in nggallery.css. This displays my slideshow at the thumbnail size, but zooms the full size photo when they're clicked.
