Re: Add (PP) stacks frame on images? Possible?
CallieJo: Sorry for not getting back to you before; for a number of (personal) reasons I haven't been online lately as much as I used to be and in-between this project got lost on my To Do list. The last time we spoke I think you aren't using Gallery for anything other than actual image files... has this changed? That answer will determine the HTML I need to send your way. (If you're only doing images only then I think we can get away with a template change but if you're doing non-image files as well then I'll add the code to the 'inline media' hack code.)
Brinnie: I prefer not looking at anybody else's code for any of the stuff I release here. I am aware, though, of the technique you're describing; essentialy the actual thumbnail is embedded as the background graphic of a cell and then another image is displayed in the cell giving the appearance of the graphics being layered. For the desiered result of this thread the second image would be in the shape of a frame or other picture-type display with a transparent center so that the background image can still be seen. Since IE doesn't support transparent PNG files a transparent GIF would be preferred. Eventually that'll be the direction that I take with this but for the immediate timeframe I'll get CallieJo up & running with the graphics she's already prepared.
