box Universal AIR XML Generator

With Universal AIR XML Generator you can rapidly and effortlessly create or update the XML, images and texts for your slideshows, galleries and banner rotators. It crops or scales all at once the images for thumbnails, full screen preview or default view, then automatically generates the XML for each image and uploads everything to the production server via FTP.

Adding Images and Albums

To generate the XML for the slideshow/gallery/banner rotator you need to add the images to the application. Images will be later resized to the necessary sizes. If the slideshow supports albums, then you can define albums and place the images in these albums as you need them.

Creating Albums

By default the applications comes with no albums defined and it works this way if you don't need albums in the slideshow XML.

If you need the images to be placed in albums, click on the "define albums" button; you need to define the album name, the album folder (the images will be saved inside this folder), album title and album descriptions. For the last 2 you can enable HTML and this will show a minimized HTML editor to help you style the text with ease.
