About TTG CE3 Client Response Gallery

TTG CE3 Client Response Gallery facilitates the exchange of information the photographer and client.

The gallery employs a Form-to-Email PHP script to collect data from clients, including image selections, image ratings, individual image comments and more. The gallery employs HighSlide JS to allow side-by-side large-size image previews without disrupting form input, and (optionally) also allows clients to download a copy of each image to their own machine. The gallery’s features include:

  • Fully responsive design built on modern web technologies for desktop, tablet and mobile devices.
  • Publish galleries via Lightroom's Publish Services using TTG CE3 Publisher.
  • Clients select and submit favorite images to photographer; selects are received as a text-based list that can be used in Lightroom's filters to easily isolate images for processing.
  • Allow clients to rate images.
  • Allow clients to submit comments on images.
  • Setup custom options, allowing clients to specify parameters for processing, delivery, etc.
  • Form-to-email powered delivery for feedback, using FormToEmail.com's venerable, powerful and secure PHP script.
  • After form submission, clients lands on a custom Thank You page.
  • Emails sent to photographer and copied to client.
  • Password protect image galleries.
  • View large images as a Slideshow, or use the Comparative mode to view multiple images side-by-side.
  • Keeps count of image selects in real-time, and offers flexible display features for refining selections.
  • Automatic detection of color labeling from the Library module.
  • Optional download of hi-res image renditions.
  • Every element can be toggled on/off.
  • Auto indexing supported by TTG CE3 Pages and TTG CE3 Auto Index.
  • Features robust visual customization options as a part of The Turning Gate’s Core Elements 3 (CE3) series of releases.
  • Supports extensive user customization via PHPlugins.

System Requirements

Requires Lightroom 3 or newer.

Hosting Requirements

We recommend hosting on:

  • Apache server
  • Linux OS
  • PHP 5.2.6 or newer

TTG CE3 Client Response Gallery requires PHP for its integral form-to-email feature to function. Additionally, optional features such as password protection, social networking Open Graph Protocol, PHPlugins and TTG CE3 Publisher compatibility all require PHP.

Galleries may be previewed as HTML locally or using Lightroom's “Preview in Browser” feature when all of these optional features are disabled. However, form submission will fail when the gallery is not being using in a server environment with mail() PHP function support.

TTG CE3 Client Response Gallery may function on hosting configurations other than our recommendations above, but this is the only environment that we officially support. If you need to find new hosting, we heartily recommend Bluehost for reliable, affordable hosting of TTG websites.

TTG CE3 Client Response Gallery is known NOT to work on Yahoo Hosting, due to restrictions placed on PHP mail() functionality on their servers.
