No photo gallery? Worth knowing about technology and program
If your operating system doesn’t build the photo gallery, but instead displays a warning that
restricts the display of active content, allow the blocked risk. The navigation, the selection
menus of the photo gallery as well as the control of the gallery pages are completely written
version 3.0 the entire screen is designed in container technology with a maximum of 5 areas,
which are set visible or kept hidden depending on the screen width. Same width also determines
how many shots can be shown in a row and automatically adjusts to it when you refresh the
screen, similar to your Windows Explorer. Due to the variable structure of the gallery,
unfortunately, no headings can be given any longer, which area will be displayed next.
The photo gallery itself as one on the 5 subsections is displayed with dynpro subscreen
technology, means in the screen encircled container 2 other containers are connected in the
top left position. One of these sub-container shows as transparent background image
the SL Ginga C58-239, the steam train to the stars; the other container contains the text.
The wallpaper in the background is fixed with 100% x-axis and 100% y-axis and
3500 pixels, the text container calculates its depth itself. Depending to your screen
configuration, one container is displayed deeper than the other, so there it at the bottom
an overpowering beyond the edge of one of the containers. In normal cases the wallpaper
should finish deeper than the text.
Some patience, please note
The pictures of the photo gallery are extremely compressed to 165 * 110 pixels,
thus very fuzzy, but this is the intention. By clicking the frame you will get the actual size
with an image resolution of 2250 * 1500 pixels and the detailed data to the picture.
You can click the graphics right away, the second screen will open, but it may be that
your Internet browser will load all the photos in the gallery before the single photo
is activated in the zoom. Also note that your computer may issue a warning about active
elements in the background. Without activation and during charging, the zoom screen
remains black, which is not a program error, it is just the background color.
Please be patient. How the photo description is structured and which possibilities
you have in operating the system, is shortly summarized in the
to the photo.
