    My name is George I run BGMedia Services. I Manage the Motorhead Website ( and I need a suggestion as to what I should do with a few galleries I'm updating.

    We have about 200 photos of fans with Motorhead tattoos that we are adding to the website. The problem is, I really don't have a clean, easy way to display it. Something that would be awesome would be the

    Carousel Image Slider widget but Adding each of the images to the widget is mind numbing. Is there a way to add the folder to the server and pull the images maybe through JSON or something similar? maybe with a lazy load as to not overload the server with 200 images per page.
    Your help would be greatly appreciated, I love your themes and your widgets.

    Hey @bgmedia

    I totally understand where you are coming from there, however the Carousel Image Slider i really made for displaying a small number of images on your site and cannot pull images from an external folder without edits to the code of the widget itself.

    What I would suggest is to use some of these widgets:
    • Flickr Photo Album Widget
    • Facebook Photo Albums
    • Mumblr
    • Instagram
    You can find a full list of our Photo widgets here:

    The advantages of using widgets such as the Flickr widget is that you can do a bulk upload off all of your images, then our widgets simply pulls the images in, from Flickr for example.

    So, my best option would be to create a flickr, facebook mumblr or instagram just for all the fan tatoos? I don't mind I'm just wondering. What do you think about maybe using owl Carousel?

    Yep I would personally say that would be the best route to take, it means that you can do a bulk upload of all your images. Uploading 200 images to the Carousel Image Slide may cause it to run a little slow.

    It is also worth remembering that with products such as the Facebook Gallery widget you can display the image captions on your site which can be good!
