Test a New Feature: Slideshow for Albums

End of last week we had a thought: wouldn't it be nice to make an additional view for albums similar to the gallery view in the Magazine?

One of the photos from the slideshow view of an album

We gave it a try and we liked the result. But then we thought why not showing the photos within the gallery in full width? Again we liked the result. We’ve restricted the full width to friends only! Please note: this is just a test, so here are some things to be aware of:

  • sometimes it might take a while until the photos are loaded
  • hitting “show all photos” will – well – load all photos (and this might take even longer due to the measurements)
  • photos will take up a lot of space (so it’s best for desktop computers or one’s hooked up to a larger screen)
  • to leave a comment or like a photo simply click the “open this photo” link on the upper right – this will take you to the detail view of the current photo

Wanna give it a try? Simply add /slideshow to any of your (or other user’s) albums: www.lomography.com/…/albums/20239-concerts should be changed to www.lomography.com/…/albums/20239-concerts/slideshow. So what do you think? Let us know in the comments!

    Wonderful feature!! However, my computer is old and my DSL connection is the cheapest, so it works slow.

    Mammamia! it's like the advent of the cinemascope! I love it, for me the only downside is in the visualization of the vertical shots.

    I really love how this new feature looks like and works, but now our pics can be hi-res downloaded by anyone, isn't it? Am I the only one a little bit worried?

    HUGE !!! @vgzalez: Mmm fair point... Maybe, later, things will be upgraded to Java galleries ? (like here: http://www.photoshop(…)elly-castro)

    @vicuna, @stouf and @vgalez: thanks for this input – this is for sure a concern. java galleries won't help much because: if you can see it, you can take a screenshot… but we have to think on something!

    just a thought: would it be fine for you to have on global setting if your photos can be viewed in higher resolution?

    maybe you can always be able to view your pictures in higher res when you're logged in, as you can see your private activity. And then, additionally, it would be useful having a setting to allow everyone else to view them in high resolution, or not.

    Yeah ! That's a good idea: just leave our friends to see the high res !

    Love the giant shots but it seems that the vertical shot taken with the sprocket rocket come out REALLY tall, so tall that I can't see the shot on my monitor without scrolling down! Can you add a resize to just the vertical panoramic shots??

    really like the slideshow feature! the large size shows the texture of the film and those tiny little scratches - all in all a more authentic way of viewing the photos i think. I agree with @vtayeh about the resize for vertical shots.

    we've also adaptet the maximum size – though this is a bit tricky as most have different browser heights…
