most of what is used in that gallery can be found as Open Source at sites
like http://www.flashkit.com. It's not really anything special, and the site has
been discussed here on ozzu a number of times.

Great photography, but the flashwork is average.

The coding in a gallery such as that for anatol is quite advanced. Right off the bat I can see that you have to have previous knowledge of...

1) Elastic Motion
2) The ever popular "infinite menu" effect
3) Masking
4) Motion in AS as well as checking position/sizing to initiate actions at the correct time.

Chances are you will not find an open source gallery like this... but you would have to find individual open source files of each effect and try and meld them together the best you can. Frankly it would just be easier to code it yourself from scratch... since most open source files are scripted differently (every coder has their own methods) and can get quite complicated to combine them.

You can find tutorials on Elasticity, Masking, and the "Infinite Menu" effect at http://www.kirupa.com .

But basically what this all comes down to is.... how much do you know of Flash already? You are going to need to crawl before you walk, walk before you run, and run before you jump off that cliff. If you are a beginner in Flash, a gallery like this is not something you should attempt yet.

May be u rite. I thought It's just a simple matter of insert a flash movie and the dynamic picture. So what's the quick way to make a photo gallery ?

There's like 87 Billion+ ways to create photo galleries... some easier than others, but it all depends on what you are capable of pulling off. Varying methods, varying complications.

You may want to check out the flashkit.com link UNFLUX posted, that is a source of a ton of open source files, i'm sure you can find plenty of open source gallery files there. And from there you can figure out what would work best for you.

You will at least have to know the basics of Flash to be able to create the easiet of galleries. This includes...

1) What Symbols are and how to use them.
2) How do you assign actions to Button symbols.
3) What actions will you need to know to show an image (are you getURL()-ing to it or are you loading it in via loadMovie()?)

etc, etc.

The best flash photo gallery of all time is located at http://www.imagevuex.com and it is awesome! Too bad it is so expensive!

expensive? He's offering a personal creation to the public for a
nominal fee. I don't think the prices for that are all that
outrageous at all. I think they're quite fair for the work done,
and what you get with the script. It's a fantastic piece of work
all the way around.

As an actionscripter, I have to agree with UNFLUX on this one. The amount of time/energy/effort instilled in this gallery is amazing. This has obviously been created to be as dynamic as possible for easier installation/use for you. I don't think it's overpriced at all.

Especially considering the author of this has released many great open source files at http://www.mjau-mjau.com/ . So it's not like this person is just being greedy. They offer open source for a few things, and this one project took enough work to feel they had a right to charge for it, and I say more power to them :)

I diddn't catch the $150 usd commercial liscense price earlier :shock:

Let's not forget the online controll panel, & the PHP involved for info/thumbnail generation.

I'd bet my life this will sell (if not allready) more than 10 commercial liscenses.

If you ask me that price tag is as brilliant as the gallery itself :)

I understand that, I know it is a good price for what he has made. I think it is too much to pay to have a gallery on your site if it is just a normal site though. Like if Ozzu had a gallery section with Bigwebmasters personal photos, it wouldn't be worth $150 to set one up if you could get one that wasn't as awesome as imagevue.

I'm not denying the awesome software and the deserved price, just the fact that it is too pricey for anything I would need it for. It wouldn't make me any money, so why spend to much on it? That's all.
