How to make Flash galleries show more than 500 pictures?

You need to modify the Flash template. This is at

Windows: C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.x\Shared\webengines\default_flash.lrwebengine
Mac: Applications\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom [version]\Shared\webengines\default_flash.lrwebengine

Copy that lrwebengine to

Windows: C:\Users[user]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\LightroomWeb Galleries
Mac: [user]\Library\Application Support\Adobe\LightroomWeb Galleries

Open the file galleryInfo.lrweb in a text editor. Notepad is fine on Windows, or TextEdit on Mac where you may need to right click the lrwebengine and select “Show Package Contents” to get to the file itself.

Look at line 21 and replace the following lines with this:

title = LOC “$$$/WPG/Templates/Flash/Bluefire1=Lightroom Flash Gallery > 500”,

id = “com.adobe.wpg.flash.bluefire1modified”,

galleryType = “Flash”,

groupPath = “resources/mediaGroupData/group.xml”,

mainSWF = “resources/gallery.swf”,

maximumGallerySize = 50000,

Why are colours different in Flash galleries

It’s because the Flash gallery’s SWF (the Flash file) isn’t colour managed.

Flash does now support colour management.  But the SWF would have to be ActionScript3 (the version in Lightroom is AS2)

You also have to consider what the person viewing your site is using. Assuming the visitor isn’t using a Flash-hobbled device like an iPad, that computer would have to be running Flash Player 10 and would only get good colour if the monitor is properly colour-managed.


If you want to use a Flash-based gallery, look at SlideShowPro for Lightroom. It’s not colour-managed though.
If you can code Flash, get SlideShowPro standalone
