Holy blogosphere, Batman! It’s my 10th post! Sure this might not seem like a milestone, but when you consider that most blogs die out before their 10th post, you realize how glad I am to jump this hurdle. We’ve had our ups and downs, but overall it’s been quite a trip so far, with many great memories made and many still to come!
I’ve gotten a lot of feedback throughout these first couple of months running Sma Man’s Rambling Expirations of his Conscience. Luckily, none about the crazy name, which I’ll discuss in a later post, but instead, photo viewing.
Up until now, you either had to view the thumbnail with a magnifying glass, or click on it to enlarge it to it’s original size… at 4752 × 3168, which is still huge even in today’s hi-speed internet world. (Imagine trying to do that on a 28.8 modem… it would be an all-day event!)
Now, clicking on that thumbnail will bring you to the photo’s hot, new “attachment page,” where you can see a larger, but not nearly as large version of the photo.
What’s more, you can now share an individual photo to your friends, “friends,” like-ers, and followers on Facebook, Twitter and a myriad of other sharing methods. You can also get around the images in a post more efficiently, by clicking the small previous and next photos at the bottom. And for those of you die-hard purists who miss getting the pure, big, kahuna, fear not!
Simply click the “4752 X 3168” (or whatever the resolution happens to be) in the by-line to get the original image in all it’s ultra-hi rez glory.
Hopefully none of you were scared off from the large sizes before. If you know a friend that was, invite them back and let them know its changed! We’re constantly innovating here at SMREOHC, (except in the anagrams department) and we will keep moving forward to provide you an at least sub-par photo viewing experience.
Also, keep in mind this involved a heavy re-hyperlinking process and there’s a huge possibility that I got something messed up. Let me know of any broken/weird links and I’ll dispatch a team of McGyver pigeons to fix it.
Why not try it out right now? Here’s some quick links to previous photo posts!
