I open saved picture gallery maker project file. It's empty. Why?
I have saved all my galleries on my computer. Recently I changed computers, I transferred all the Project files/Galleries to the new computer. On the new computer I can still see the Gallery name, I can see f.i. Size 16 Kb, but when I go into the Gallery there are no pictures anymore.
What can I do to get the pictures back?
Thanks in advance for your reply.
A: VisualLightBox project file stored settings of your gallery only (information about template, image resolution, template of thumbnails, etc), it does not include images.
So if you saved you project as .vislb file and decide to edit created gallery, all the images should be in the same folders/directories they were, when you saved .vislb file.
Otherwise, if you replaced or deleted images .vislb project file won't open correctly.
Anyway you can try to correct(check) paths to images in .vislb file.
Just open it in any text editor and find the following code:
<Images> <Image> <url>D:/Images/leaves/frosty.jpg</url> <title>frosty</title> </Image> <Image> <url>D:/Images/leaves/geranium-leaves.jpg</url> <title>geranium-leaves</title> </Image> <Image> <url>D:/Images/leaves/leaf.jpg</url> <title>leaf</title> </Image> </Images>
