Version History
Software Manual

There are two different versions of Image Arcadia.  Image Arcadia Lite is the freeware version tailored to personal web sites.  Image Arcadia Community is our commercial product that provides more advanced features that multimedia sites would employ.  Read on for more information.

 
Common Features

Image Arcadia provides the most advanced and user friendly Interface for
Multimedia Management around. All procedures are done via the web. You
will not find any complicated and annoying command line interfaces here.
You will never have to create your categories or edit style, order, details by
your FTP client. EVERYTHING IS DONE VIA THE WEB - From anywhere! 

Virtually unlimited number of media files can be stored (Limited to Hard Drive Space).

Virtually unlimited number of media categories and subcategories allowed (as well as sub category levels).

Virtually unlimited number of file types supported: GIF, JPEG, PNG, AVI, Apple QuickTime, ZIP, HTML, PSD, way more than the default supported by a visitor's browser.

Add new file formats as they come out in the future or add existing ones not currently implemented through Image Arcadia's extensible File Type Manager.

Media download tracking.

Decide where to open the full-size media file - Current Window, New Window, or Download.

Image Descriptions, displayed along with thumbnails and full-size images.

You decide exactly what information you want displayed by powerful 'Arcadia Keywords'.

Secure, Multiple user administration.

You may set Category icon, description, and Name displayed.

Category statistics are displayed at each level of categories

Each category is actually a directory on your hard drive. You can simply create a new one via the Category Editor, or upload a whole directory and create it that way.

Each category can have the same look as your main gallery or it can use its own Skin. A Skin is an advanced HTML Template that provides control over every minute detail of the page being displayed.

If Skins are too much trouble, you can modify the way your gallery looks with the Style Settings page - Point and click your way through changing the look and feel of your site.

Built in 'Batch Add' feature to automatically scan your hard drive for new images and categories and add them automatically.
