Print Option for Image Gallery

Permalink
Hello,

I am just looking for an image gallery that offers a print option to users. I want to add free colouring pages to my websitehttp://www.thedogword.com and i'm having trouble finding the perfect solution. Any suggestions? Preferably free or relatively inexpensive would be great! Thanks for any help.

This is a good idea for an addon. Although there isn't anything that does this, I could look into creating one.

It would be so awesome if you could do that! My only other option is to use a image gallery software or possibly convert images to pdfs but i'd rather work completely with Concrete5 as much as I can. I figured there could be a block out there that does this, and if not it cannot be so hard to create? I know people can usually mouse over and right click for print but I think for colouring pages it just makes sense to have that print button for people to easily see and click.

It would be perfect if you could mouse over an image already selected or even from a thumbnail gallery view and the options come up like with PDF's. If you are able to create such a block let me know I will definitely use it.

Would this be for 5.7 and newer?

I already have an image gallery addon in the marketplace, so it shouldn't take very long for me to make this.

I've been doing some planning, and here's what I'm looking at doing (so far).

"EZ Print" will be a package for making any area printable. The package will also include a front-end block.

Package Features:
- Make any block printable by applying a class
- Custom templates for core Image and Content blocks (applies a "print" button)
- Printable Stacks (?)

Print Gallery Block:
- Choose a file set
- Easy sorting
- Responsive lightbox (or similar interface)
- Display thumbnails on page

Print Button Block
- Adds a simple print button
- option to print entire page, or stack

I'm open to suggestions.

I think that sounds great! It would be perfect if the print button was displayed visibly on the top right corner, or somewhere people will easily notice over the image. I can't think of any other suggestions right now. I know for my purposes I just need something simple that displays the images in my specified file set and then when you click on an image will make it larger with a print option. Of course being able to do more is always better for future options.

I was thinking about this and what kind of suggestions I could make, and I wanted to suggest that it would be great to have social buttons for sharing on sites like Pinterest or Instagram.

I also think that adding extra gallery options would be great and would add more value. Like having different styles to choose from whether that thumbnail view, portfolio, etc.

Hi, I was thinking I needed the same thing too for my recipe website. I had just started thinking about creating a stylesheet for printing them. Did this package ever get created?

EZ Print is under review, so it may or may not be available soon.

It is stable and usable, though, and has been tested on the most recent version (5.8.x).

If interested, I could sell a copy now. Send me a private message if interested.
