A Photo Gallery content type with a slideshow view.

Don’t Panic


To enable this package in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add add the following to it:

    eggs =

After updating the configuration you need to run ‘’bin/buildout’‘, which will take care of updating your system.

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in a Plone site and click on the ‘Add-ons’ link.

Check the box next to Photo Gallery and click the ‘Activate’ button.


You may have to empty your browser cache and save your resource registries in order to see the effects of the product installation.


Original images in a Photo Gallery can be easily downloaded by enabling the display of an explicit link. To use this feature, go to the Photo Gallery control panel configlet and select ‘Enable download?’.

If ftw.zipexport is installed, you will also be able to download all images on a ZIP file.


Photo Gallery uses Cycle2 slideshow plugin for jQuery and it can load its resources from the Plone JS registry if they are present there.

If you’re using Photo Gallery with other packages that use Cycle2 also (like collective.nitf or covertile.cycle2), it is highly recommended that you register those resources to load them once and avoid conflicts.

You can use a jsregistry.xml file that includes the following:

<javascript id="++resource++collective.js.cycle2/jquery.cycle2.min.js"
    cacheable="True" compression="none" cookable="True" enabled="True" />
<javascript id="++resource++collective.js.cycle2/jquery.cycle2.carousel.min.js"
    cacheable="True" compression="none" cookable="True" enabled="True" />
<javascript id="++resource++collective.js.cycle2/jquery.cycle2.swipe.min.js"
    cacheable="True" compression="none" cookable="True" enabled="True" />

Not Entirely Unlike
