About CE4 Pages

CE4 Pages creates the foundation of your photography website, a set of static web pages to frame and support your image galleries. The plugin creates up to six pages: Home, Galleries, Services, Info, About and Contact. A single image gallery is supported, which allows you to greet visitors with a set of your best images, usually as your Home page; a single gallery index allows you to corral your image galleries for perusal. Flexible design options allow you to customize page layout, branding, colors, typography, navigation, social networking, and more. Whether building your first photo website or your hundredth, CE4 Pages is the best tool to streamline your Lightroom-to-website workflow, and to create a website you can take pride in.

System Requirements

CE4 Pages is a plug-in for Adobe Lightroom's Web module, requiring Lightroom 3.0 or newer, for Mac or Windows.

Hosting Requirements

CE4 Pages outputs its pages as PHP documents, not HTML. For this reason, CE4 Pages should be hosted online (or in an equivalent offline environment). We recommend these hosting specifications:

  • Linux OS (recommended)
  • Apache server (recommended)
  • PHP 5.2.6 or newer (required)

We only test on hosting meeting these specifications and cannot guarantee functionality on alternative configurations. If you require new hosting, we highly recommend Bluehost for reliable, affordable hosting of TTG websites.

Because CE4 Pages generates PHP pages, you cannot view pages using Lightroom's “Preview In Browser” feature, nor can you run pages in the browser from your desktop.

CE4 Pages is one part of a component system, and allows the creation of only one image gallery on any one of its pages. To create additional image galleries, presumably to populate your gallery index, you will need to use a separate gallery plugin, such as CE4 Gallery or CE4 Stage.

CE4 Pages includes ONE gallery index, powered by our auto indexing script. These makes it very easy to add or publish galleries to your website. To create additional gallery index pages, or to create a categorized hierarchy of images galleries, you will also need CE4 Auto Index.
