Impact

Impact is Web Engine for Lightroom 2 and later which creates a powerful showcase for your work.

Impact is all about emotion. By scaling each image to fill the browser window your visitors will be treated to a “wow” experience that will help to separate your work from the crowd. The slideshow and the transitions are handled using Javascript so your site will be visible on devices that don't have Flash such as the iPhone and iPad.

Impact is exceptionally configurable. You may adjust all the colours, change the font, create up to 6 menu bar items, alter the slideshow transition timings, turn various elements on and off and change their positions.

A single gallery or an entire site?

This standard version of Impact will generate a single gallery of images — this is ideal for integrating into an existing site.

If you wish to create an entire web site based on Impact then Impact WSPP would be a great solution.

Feature summary

  • Impressive and memorable viewing experience thanks to full browser width images and sliding transitions.
  • The first image in the gallery is displayed as quickly as possible, and the others are preloaded one by one in the background. The waiting times are therefore reduced to a minimum.
  • Multiple image resolutions are exported and the most appropriate resolution is used when displaying the images. This ensures fast loading on mobile devices without penalising the image quality on desktop machines.
  • Text annotations.
  • Very configurable interface - the colours of all on screen elements may be changed.
  • Users can bookmark images and return directly to them (the URL changes as the slideshow advances).
  • Designed for iPhone. The iPhone will be served with low resolution images to increase download speed. When viewed in landscape mode the navigation bar is automatically moved out of way to leave more room for the images. Finally, users may then swipe between images.
  • Pure HTML/Javascript - no Flash.
  • Image scaling is handled using some clever HTML rather than relying on Javascript. This results in a more fluid user experience when resizing the browser, and also ensures that the gallery looks correct if Javascript is turned off.
  • The gallery will fall back very gracefully if Javascript is disabled. Users will continue to see the full size images; image preloading and the automatic slideshow will be unavailable.
  • Support for The Turning Gate's TTG XML Auto Index and TTG Pages galleries for creating entire websites.
  • “Right-click and save” is disabled to discourage casual theft.
  • Automatic update checking.

Samples

This is a new gallery so we'd love to see the results of your creativity. If you'd like to showcase your gallery here then please contact us.

Here are some existing galleries created using Impact:

  • Svarteld has kindly allowed us use of his amazing avionics gallery to demonstrate how impressive Impact can look. The images have been exported at very high resolution to their best on big screens (but the low res images will be used on small screens).
  • Timothy Armes uses Impact to showcase his commercial photography.
