A few months back I mentioned that Adobe has been working on a system to enable rich Flash- and HTML-based Web galleries to be created from Adobe apps. That engine is currently available in Photoshop Elements and Photoshop Lightroom, and I’m happy to report that the underlying ActionScript code is now available as an open-source project. The galleries (see examples) are rather deceptively simple, but the underlying code supports good stuff like dynamic resizing, user-configurable high/low bandwidth states, multi-resolution files, and more.

If you just want to start generating slick Flash galleries from Photoshop CS2, check out Felix Turner’s sweet PostcardViewer hook-up (see example output), as well as the ones that ship with Photoshop.

How exactly does one use this AMG scripts ? Is this a Flash component or can one drop this in the Photoshop scripts directory like the Postcard viewer ?
[There isn’t yet a connection between Photoshop and the AMG galleries. For now you can use them with the latest versions of Elements and Lightroom. –J.]
