  • Photo viewer size preference

     

    If the photo viewer becomes unresponsive
    Close the browser window or tab and connect to the site again to restart the script that runs the viewer.

    All settings present the photo gallery in a "modal" window on top of this page.

    Normal uses a window 640 pixels high x 1000 pixels wide. It is suitable for desktop computers and some laptops.
    Wide is adapated for widescreen laptops which may not be able to accomodate the height of the Normal view. The elements remain the same size, but are rearranged in a 550 x 1300 pixel window.
    Small is adapted for tablets and devices that cannot handle the two full size versions. The window is reduced to 450 x 875 pixels, with the elements all reduced in size. In order to maximize the photo size in a smaller viewer, there is no caption information.


    Note that the Gallery Photo Viewer size setting is stored as a cookie on your computer, so it will remember your preference as you return to the site. If you have not enabled cookies, the site will remember any changes you make throughout your current session.

    Note also that changing the size of the photo viewer to reflect the device you are using also changes the height of the list in each tab, inserting a scroll bar within the tab when necessary.

    The majority of photos you use to build a collection will likely be landscape (wide) orientation. The samples here show how cropping can improve the framing of a picture or add emphasis by "zooming in" on detail.

    Photo collections are restricted to landscape (wide) orientation. While some portrait (tall) photos look best that way, the cropping tool can produce some powerful results. Here are some samples from nature and people.
