Gallery Server Pro follows web design best practices in separating content from styling

Gallery Server Pro is designed from the ground up to target the latest HTML and CSS standards, while falling back gracefully on older browsers.

  • Easily change styling by editing style sheet
  • Works the same across all modern browsers
  • Adaptive rendering for a great user experience across all screen sizes
  • HTML5 video and audio tags used when supported, falling back to Flash and Silverlight when required

All styles—including colors, padding, margins, and font sizes—are contained in two style sheets that can be edited right from the site admin area. Within minutes you can give the gallery the same color scheme as your client's site.

Integrate into existing web site

Here we see Gallery Server Pro integrated into a legacy ASP web application through the use of an iframe.

Choose one of the following methods for adding a gallery:

Stand-alone installation. This is the quickest way to get up and running.

Integrate with existing ASP.NET site. Gallery Server Pro is wrapped into a single user control that can be added to any .ASPX web page. Take advantage of your existing login system and master pages, and share session state, application state, and global variables.

Integrate with web site using iframe. Install Gallery Server Pro as a stand-alone application on an ASP.NET-compatible server. Then add an iframe to your existing site that points to this location.

This technique can be used to add a gallery to any web site including static HTML sites, PHP, Java, or a web site built with a web host template application.

The Administrator's Guide has a full discussion on each of these techniques, including their advantages and disadvantages.
