Update: Theater Add-on 1.0.2 Brings Passwords and Horizons

The horizontal-scrolling gallery is a classic design, but one that’s been in dire need of a modern overhaul. If you’ve been patiently waiting for a followup to CE2 Horizon gallery, our horizontal-scrolling gallery plugin for Lightroom from several years ago, then today is your day!

Backlight 1.0.4 Release 3 and Theater Add-on 1.0.2 are now available for download.

The Backlight 1.0.4 Release 3 update adds password support for Theater albums, and is necessary only for users of the Theater Add-on.

Theater Add-on 1.0.2 brings improvements to existing presentations, including captions support for Vegas Slideshow, and the new Flickity slider presentation.

Flickity is a highly customizable, touch-enabled slider, and can be used to create a variety of differently styled presentations. Here are just a few examples using Flickity:
