Has anyone come up with any solution for viewing photos in a gallery format? Ideally, we'd like to be able to cycle through a series of photos in a pop-up, or even in a separate html page.  We're currently using photos in a virtual directory, but we're open to switching to geodatabase attachments if we find a good solution to this problem.  

Right now, our users have to visit a rudimentary web page and click on links to photos to see what they are.  Even just seeing thumbnails instead of hyperlinks would be a huge improvement.

Appreciate any input!

Are the photo's attached to an existing feature service or spatial data or are you looking to specifically show images?

If the photos are attached to a feature layer, check out this tool:

If you are creative in how the photo's are added, you may be able to use a story map app or Geolist to display the data in a different format from standard pop ups.

Thanks for replying KGerrow-esristaff

The photos are not attached to an existing feature service.  We would have to attach them somehow.  I will explore the tool you suggested; it could be useful for other things, as well.  

Thanks!

Stay tuned for upcoming releases of ArcGIS Online. In this upcoming release, you will be able to see thumbnails of attachments in pop ups for some of the 4x configurable apps (like Media Map).
