This first version of the Showcase Extras Action allows you to easily extent the standard Showcase Action that ships with Freeway 5.5 to allow you to add image gallery watermarks as well as change the visual style of the controls.

Easily place a watermark image anywhere over your gallery images. Ideal for displaying copyright or contact information (for example).

Use the thirteen built-in button styles to change the look of the Showcase controls or simply create your own and use the Action to apply it to your image galleries and slideshows.

Simply apply the page Action and set the options in the Action’s palette.

  • Freeway 5.5 Pro or Express required.



When use this page action, no button display at all on my website. They do display while previewing in the browser, while I'm working on it.

Hi Chuck, The current version of the action won't change the live preview while designing your page but will update them as expected when the page is either previewed or published to a browser. Regards, Tim.

Version 1.1 addresses a minor bug where the selected button style would be reset between saves.

Version 1.2 - Added a patch so that the spacebar is no longer used for playing and pausing slideshows. This allows Showcase galleries and slideshows to be used on pages that contain forms and other items that require the use of the spacebar.

If you use the Showcase Extras Action on a Showcase Slideshow item that has the thumb position set to Left or Right, the arrow buttons at the top and bottom are still left-pointing and right-pointing. Is this a bug or a limitation of the Action?

Version 1.3 of the Showcase Extras Action adds the following new features and fixes;

  • You can now define custom cursors (previous and next) when hovering over a thumbnail gallery image. The Action supports all graphic file types although for best browser support you should use PNGs or .cur (ico) files.

  • Fixed an issue where the previous and next icons were incorrectly orientated if the slideshow thumbnails were displayed to the left or right or the main image.
