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.

Publishing a project

Publishing a project means the process of resizing images to the desired sizes and write the XML needed for the slideshow, gallery or banner rotator. You can also upload the resized images and XML to the production server automatically, via FTP. The Publish functionality is available in the XML settings interface:
