Can't modify web photo gallery.

Feb 27, 2012 8:18 AM

This is rather complex so I hope I can explain it well.

In CS3 I created my own gallery styles based on the supplied ones.  Pretty much cusomizations of the white on black.

When I got CS4, it had a new method of gallery creation, and I wanted to continue to use the types I had already created.  I had talked to tech help and was told how to import the styles I had and use the old method.

I am currently creating galleries containing various families of insects.  I had previously created a template for bullerflies and moths called Lepidoptera gallery, after the Order to which they belong..  It contains a link to another page which has the families, and the link is called moth families.

 

 

Now I was working on an entirely different Order, Orthoptera which includes, grasshoppers, crickets etc.  At first I used the Lepidoptera template, but then I had to go into 5 pages that were created and change text and links.

 

So I created a copy of the Lepidoptera folder, and modified what I needed to change in an HTML editor, which was how I customized the style originally.  When I first tried to use the new Orthoptera template, it wasn't listed in the choices.  I searched the C: drive and found that the one I modified was in a different directory.

It was in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Presets\Web Photo Gallery

So I copied it to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4 (64 Bit)\Presets\Web Photo Gallery.

 

And now it appeared in the list of templates (Orthoptera).  So I ran the gallery creator, but found that the page created still had "Moth familes", instead of "Orthoptera Families".

I had modified it already, and did so in both locations just in case.  If I go to windows explorer, and burrow down to the file, click on the template itself, orthoptera/indexpage.htm then this will produce a page with "orhoptera familes"

 

I am just about tearing my hair out with frustration as this makes no sense to me at all.  I wonder if anyone understands what is going on.  As I continue to make more family galleries, which may have several pages, I don't want to have to keep going into each and doing the same changes all the time.  It should be so unnecessary.
