Chapter 19. Creating Presentations with ... > Creating Custom Web Galleries

Creating Custom Web Galleries

As indicated in the previous section, if you have a good working knowledge of HTML, you can create custom galleries using proprietary HTML tags provided by Expression Media. HTML code can be modified in any HTML editor, including Expression Web. Expression Media offers some perfectly fine prefabricated templates, but it is always preferable to add your own personal touch, and create something that is custom tailored to your specific project. While it is beyond the scope of this book to teach HTML coding, we will go through the fundamental tools provided by Expression Media that make creating your own web gallery simple and accessible.

Once again, it is probably a good idea to start with a preset template, and edit the portions of code to your specifications. Templates in Expression Media are made up of a theme containing HTML tags. Once you create a custom HTML gallery, it will appear in the Theme menu along with the preset themes upon restarting Expression Media. The Theme folder contains an index, HTML templates, and the Assets folder, which contains HTML graphics and an image, named About.jpg, which is essentially a preview of your web gallery.
