Q: What version of Lightroom do I require?
A: Lightroom 3.2 or higher.
Q: I have a question concerning the design/creation/publication of the site. Where should I be looking?
Q: I already have the standard version of Impact. Can I upgrade to Impact WSPP?
A: No, the two products really serve different purposes and we're maintaining them as separate product lines.
Q: Impact exports fairly high resolution images. Isn't it silly to put such large images on the web?
A: By default Impact exports images at two resolutions - 480 pixels wide for small screen devices and 1024 pixels wide for all others.
You can optionally export a third class of images at a higher resolution. It's worth bearing in mind that the raison d'être of Impact is to display big images
in order to provoke the greatest emotional response. Only you can decide if the benefits of this approach - impressing your potential clients - outweighs the risks
of image theft. Many professional photographers are now displaying large images.
Q: The rounded corners option for the menu bar doesn't do anything. Why?
A: Internet Explorer doesn't support this feature. On Windows Lightroom previews your design using Internet Explorer. Rest assured
that the rounded corners will be seen on better browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Safari...).
Q: My branding image has a coloured background, shouldn't it be transparent?
p>Q: I've exported my gallery to the hard drive and I can't move between images. Why?
A: This is a limitation of the preview under Windows. The transparency should take effect when the gallery is exported.
A: Are you using Chrome? There's a bug in Chrome that stops this working from your local harddrive - it'll work just fine when you export to a web server.
Q: I've specified that images be scaled to 80% of the browser's width (or height), but they are still filling the width (or height). Am I going crazy?
A: The percentage restriction is only applied to the direction in the image is being scaled. For example, if you're scaling images
to a percentage of the browser's width and as a result a certain image would be taller than the browser's height, then the image will disappear off the bottom of the browser.
Any restriction that you've place on the image's height is ignored, since you're scaling to the width! Phew.
