You may have noticed the gallery got some new tweaks today.
First up, you get better thumbnails. The server can handle it, they’re easier for you to see what image you’re after, it’s great. While I did this, I dumped (most) of the watermarks. You’re welcome. The bigger thumbnails means I’m still working out some of the kinks with the layouts for albums, especially ones with really long names, but so far I’m very happy with the new look.
A few points to note about colorbox:
- The link to the ‘full sized’ is the real like to full sized images. The one to ‘image page’ takes you to the old image page, in case you want to link someone to one specific image.
- Your keyboard’s arrow keys (left and right) work as navigation, and are much faster than clicking the old next/previous links.
- The escape button closes colorbox (so does clicking the x or anywhere outside the colorbox area – i.e. that black area).
- You can’t open up a million images at once anymore. Instead I made you something even nicer. A link to download the album as a zip. You’ll only see it on the final album (so you can’t download the whole server’s images at once). If you abuse this, it’ll go away so please remember that the more times you download, the more money you cost me. Be responsible.
So there you go! Remember, you’re always free to use the images from JFO for your own sites. All I ask is you link back here to credit. If I’ve credited someone else, credit them instead. That way, everyone’s happy.
