filter images by folder

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

Using Zentools2 is it possible to use the filtered layout for images, filtering them by folder name? If not, how can images be filtered?

How many images do you need to filter?

Quite a lot. The idea is that 5-10 different folders containing 10-15 photos each are all filtered by folder type - that's the ideal scenario.

So the minimum amount of images is 50?

Actually there might only be a couple of folders to start with, then we'll add on. But yes it'll need to work with 50+ images normally

Think you have a problem

That amount of images is going to be a huge lift for the page

If the images need to resize you will probably break the site as you will run out of memory

I thought you might say that. I'll work on another method for this.

Yeah not a goer with that amount of images

Unless the images were really small file sizes

Just to be clear. If they were really small files, is it possible to filter using image folders as filters rather than article tags or categories?

It isn't something anybody has tested or asked about :)

I have used the filtered gallery for a few images

openalldoors.co.uk/wedding/

The "The Day" section at the bottom

I really, really love the animation and the filtering there. So was that done with article tags as the filtering? And choosing an animation option from the module settings?

No it is done via the gallery content source

Purely from the module and a folder of images

It isn't actually documented anywhere at the moment

In the content tab you drag across images from a folder in the root of the images folder

That's very clear, thanks. I've not played around with the gallery content source very much.

As far as I know, nobody has really used the gallery content source much
