Hi guys! I’m working for this tutorial brought to you by AdobeNicNacs and this is one of the five promised tutorials to make up of all the absence of tutorials because my microphone was broken. And this is going to be the Dreamweaver OEM. And I thought be we have to look at very popular thing on the internet where it has been popular for sometime on this and its Shadow box. And you probably seen it, so, I’ll show you an example and then you probably recognize it.
So, I have a picture here, you click and the rest of the picture is grayed out and the picture opens up and it can be in the Gallery or in a single image like this. And I before that, I show you really quickly in Dreamweaver on how to set this all up. So, we’ve got a Shadowbox-js.com or I just Googled Shadow box and just click Download, download it, I’ve already done that for you and once you download it, you get a zipped file. So, I’m just going to set up a site in Dreamweaver and I’ve got two images which I’m, going to use, I’ve got the image and the thumb, thumbnail image, and look at the zip file. So, I’m just going to right click and extract it here, and I will just delete the zip file now. In here, we’ve got everything we need, so what you can do is you can just take all this, copy it, go back into the site, paste it and then we can get the shadow box field photo.
See you probably do not actually need half of this stuff to do it, but it’s worth having it there in case you want to take it a little bit further than it originally is because all we’re going to be doing is the very basic one. So, on the Shadow box site, go to Usage because we’re just going to be following all of this because this is–this site got everything, it tells you exactly how to set it up. It’s really easy. And so we’re just going to be following that, I just want to show you how easy it is and how easy they make it to set it up.
So, we’re just going to go into Dreamweaver and just refresh. So, we’ve got everything we have here and let’s create a new file. So, right click, new file, we’ll call this index.html. We’ll go into that and this is what we’ve got, so we’ve got nothing in code view, this is what we could just rename this file to Shadow Box Example. Then what we need to do is we go here and we’ll see what they tell us to do. And it says the simplest way set up blah blah blah and it tells us we need to stick this in the head tag. So, just highlight this, copy it and you now head tag up here, just paste it all in.
So, it tells us a list if you go down here and it tells that this is what we need to do it. There we go, so we can just copy this in and we put this in our body. I will paste this. So what we’ve got here is the Image that will show up in the big box. So we’ll change this and because it is not read that right to you, you can just choose this to sunset_img. This can be any with what you want, sunset_img. And then the thumbnail goes in here. so in the moment it's just got text, so we have to link and we can actually change this to an image. So if we do img and then we go source, and we can just type in here sunset_thumb.jpg, close this. And if you’re going to see in design, you see of a thumbnail and then if we actually just save this and preview it in Google Chrome and just click this and that comes our shadow box and there you go. How does that take us to do? Two minutes, three minutes how easy was that. And this can be so customize, you can customize the CSS, you can customize everything. You can make it into a Gallery.
So, this is really was quite quick tutorial, it’s very powerful, you can use this as long as you want, it’s nice to keep lot of license and with license stuff like that.
