REPLACE THE GALLERY PICTURES: | Click for more details
The best way to setup the pictures in the gallery is not to actually edit the HTML pages and change the pictures on each individual page. The fastest way is to simply replace the pictures in the "gallery" folder with your own by overwriting the files that are in there now and using the same generic names.
In the "gallery" folder, replace the 54 "Fgallery" pictures with full size photos. Replace the 54 "gallery" pictures with your thumbnails. The thumbnails are now 100 x 67 pixels and the Fgallery images are 500 x 333. You can make them any size that you prefer. There is info for adding more images to each gallery page later in this document.

EDIT PAGES: | Software choices | Notepad Editing
Change the text on all pages with your information. You can use a text editor like notepad. Take care not to delete any of the HTML tags that surround the text.
EDIT PAGE TITLES, DESCRIPTIONS AND KEYWORDS: | Click for more details
Open each of the pages and change the page titles (at the very top of the page) and also the description and the keywords to match your product or service. You can edit one page and copy and paste to the other pages. Be careful to only change what's inside the "" so you don't disturb the html code. The page title is important so your site will get a good listing at Google or MSN and other search engines.
UPLOAD: | Click for more details
Upload the pages on to your hosting company's server using ftp software like CuteFTP or Coffee Cup (free) or your control panel. Be sure to make a folder called "picts" and "gallery" on your server and put the images into these folders. Or just upload these entire folders. You can also upload using Windows Explorer.

USING A GRAPHIC LOGO:
To replace the Flash logo with a graphic logo: Delete or rename the "header.js". Rename the "graphic_logo_header.js" to "header.js". Edit the "logo.jpg" in the picts folder with your logo graphic. If you make this image larger in height, edit the headerheight variable in the "header.js".
You can configure the placement, opacity and whether or not to have a watermark over the images in the closeup views. You will edit the "watermark.js" to change options. In the "picts" folder is a .gif image called watermark.gif. You can replace this image with your own .gif image. If you change the size of the watermark.gif you will need to do some extra editing in the watermark.js file. Click here for related details.
HOMEPAGE IMAGE: | Tiling images | Replacing images

Copy and paste to add new pictures to the list, or delete lines to remove pictures. Images can be added to the slideshow even if they are not shown in one of the gallery pages.
LINING UP GALLERY THUMBNAILS:
If you change the notes near the top of the gallery pages, the pictures may no longer line up from one page to the next. To line up the galleries, open the "line_up_pictures.js" in Notepad and change the height="60" to shorten or lengthen all the pages at once.
