Another new feature: Using your keyboard to faster browse (and like) photos


Here’s another new feature: we’ve added keyboard navigation to our photos for faster browsing and liking. So if you are left handed like me you can hold now a coffee mug in one hand, three fingers of your right hand on the keyboard and navigate like Fred Astaire…

Well, not that keyboard… but the photo by snoop was just too good

So how can you do so? Press J or Right to go to the next photo, K or Left for the previous photo, R for a random photo and L for liking a photo and going to the next right away. That’s all. Let us know in the comments what you think of this feature. And start browsing with a random photo.

    I like it. But why don't you just use the arrows for these options?

    It would be a bit less confusing for me if you'd change left and right ;) I always expect "next" to be on the right side

    Yeah Keyboard arrows and L for likes would be the best Super feature! Thanks LSI

    Hey, that's great, it works perfectly! However, as J is at the left of K... wouldn't it be more intuitive that J is for previous and K for next? but anyway thanx a lot for all the work!!!

    @nacarilegea: i think we are too used to our google readers here… :) but well, arrow keys should be clear to everyone

    I like this alot but it takes quite a lot of time to load the photos. Is anyone else having this problem or is my connection far too slow for lomography? I've never had problems like this before :-(

    When I press the "L" key, Firefox wants to perform a search on the website. Is there any way to avoid that?

    Not working when the fast in-page search feature of Firefox is active. I really want to keep that feature, so is there a way to also map a combination of two or more keys for Like and next? For example Control+L, or whatever works best?
