Well, it’s taken 18 months (did I mention how busy this year has been?) But I’ve finally updated the highlights page. All new pictures – all new style. But still the same promise.
Full screen slideshows.
Yep, absolutely hugely massive luxury slideshows in full colour filling a screen near you. Here’s how to get the best from them.First of all click the “pictures” link at the top of the page. That’s where they live.
As you run your mouse over the pictures you will see a control panel. Hit the last button on the right. I call it the gorgeousifier. Click this and the slideshow will fill your screen! It looks beautiful on my 20″ widescreen monitor and should look pretty smart on your screen. Just press escape to return to non full screen if it all gets too much for you.
Of course all of this comes at a price:
- You’ll need Flash installed. Over 95% of our visitors use Flash and if the show just works for you then you have it too! Nope – I fixed that! It runs very nicely on my iPhone.
- We’re using pretty big files to run this (bigger than anyone else because our pictures deserve it ). That might mean a small delay as the pictures are downloaded. If the delay gets too much (and it should only really be bad on dial up) then go and make a cup of tea – the slideshow is cached and will run much faster the next time.
