With our latest Flash Portfolio Site design, we take a nostalgic look at the by-gone era of film, which naturally reminded us of the movie capital of the world, Hollywood. Reminiscent of an old design favorite “Darkroom,” you’ll love this modern adaptation of the filmstrip inspired classic design.
As big and bold as the movies, your images will be framed in an impressive graphic that features a transition from bottom to top that actually looks like the film is running. No other PhotoBiz Flash Portfolio design functions like this! In fact, it is so unique that you won’t need to use our famous “Transition Bank”.
The motion effect is reinforced by the the ability to see through the “film perforations” to the background, which has a beautiful gradient applied to the top and bottom edge to give it a rustic feel. If you choose to upload a custom background, make sure it is a transparent PNG file so that you can take full advantage of this effect.
When the animation is at rest the main image is centered in the filmstrip, with the lower edge of the preceding image shown at the top, and the upper edge of the following image displayed at the bottom. If a full frame 1500 x 865 pixel image is uploaded, it is perfectly framed by a colored border. Coupled with your logo at the top of the screen, and navigation bar at the bottom of the design boasts a stunning 3-D look.
The entire feel of the homepage slideshow is carried over to the gallery pages. While there are no thumbnails, there is a handy up and down arrow framing a counter to help people navigate through the slideshow.
PhotoBiz’s industry leading color-shifting technology can be applied to the background, navigation bar, and social media icons. Plus, for the first time the social media icons are vertically stacked in the upper left margin, a cool juxtaposition from the traditional horizontal alignment of the icons. And as always, a unique page loader graphic.
We’ve had a lot of fun creating this design and we hope you enjoy it. The Hollywood design is now available in your PhotoBiz Control Panel!
