How the 3D Gallery works
The 3D Gallery is constructed like a carousel where only the back section is visible.
Any images added to the 3D Gallery are distributed evenly over the complete carousel. Therefore, the distance between the images is determined by the size of the carousel and the number of images displayed. The size of the carousel can be defined by the setting Radius.
Because of the three-dimensional perspective of the Gallery, the size of the images shown depends on the extension of the carousel. The larger the carousel, the smaller the images in the background. To modify the size of the images, the focus of the Gallery can be moved backwards or forwards with the setting Focus. If you increase the Focus value, the images move forward and appear larger, but at the same time, the visible section of the carousel and thus its perspective presentation are changed as well.
For optimum presentation, we suggest using between 10 and 70 images.
To make the differences in the presentation clear, all galleries below are using the same images.
View of a gallery from above:
The same gallery with fewer images. The distance between the images has become larger:
A large gallery with 40 images. The size of the images has reduced automatically, so that all images could be fully displayed in the gallery:
(Radius: 800 / Focus: 250)
The same gallery with larger focus. The perspective has moved forward. The images now appear larger, but the three-dimensional effect is reduced:
(Radius: 800 / Focus: 600)
