Holiday 2005 Wrap Up

March 17th, 2006 1 comment

I’ve finished uploading my pictures from the end of 2005:

I also uploaded some older holiday pictures:

I published one of these sets as an iPhoto Photocast:

I think the Photocast idea is kind of cool but it eats up the limited space I have on my .Mac account fairly quickly. If I could store them on my other hosting service I’d put a lot more out there.

Minor Programming Update

March 2nd, 2006 No comments

I finally got around to modifying the gallery index scripts I use for this site tonight. They were minor modifications but they’d been bothering me for a while.
When I initially designed them the thumbnail image links went to the root level of each gallery. I thought that was a little strange since I was showing a specific thumbnail and then directing the user to the root gallery where they would then have to manually search through the images to find the image on whose thumbnail they clicked. That made sense at the time but in retrospect I decided it made more sense to go back to the original behavior and direct the user to the root gallery level. The thumbnail image is a much larger target for the user than the gallery title so I imagine users tended to click on a single image then back to the gallery level.
I also modified the navigation section on each page to change the links to simple numbers instead of “Page X”. This more closely matches the actual gallery pages and is more space efficient (now that the general Pictures area has seven pages).

In the past couple of days I’ve uploaded three sets of holiday pictures:
Christmas Eve 2005

I’m also trying something new. I’ve also uploaded all of these pictures as iPhoto Photocasts. If you have iPhoto 6.0 or above you can use the following links to add the pictures to your local iPhoto library:

‘Tis The Season

February 22nd, 2006 No comments

I’ve got my first set of pictures from Christmas 2005 online. (I was delayed for a little while trying to get the new developer of the export software I use to fix a bug that’s been around for a while. Sadly it still isn’t fixed so I had to settle for a nasty little hack that is less wrong more often and more wrong infrequently.)
I think this one is my favorite:

Thanksgiving Pictures

November 28th, 2005 No comments

I got back from Kentucky this weekend. It was a nice trip (although I was on some pretty small planes from MSP – STL – BNA). I took a few pictures during my vacation but it’ll take a little while to sort through them and get them cleaned up and labeled.
I do have a group picture of me and eighty eight of my relatives (not taken by me) and a group picture from Thanksgiving 2001 (taken by me).

Something Old, Something New

August 26th, 2005 No comments

I currently have the gallery index pages setup so that clicking on a thumbnail takes you directly to the picture whose thumbnail you clicked on and clicking on the title of the gallery takes you to the first page of the gallery. I’m considering changing the thumbnail behavior to match the title behavior. Does anyone care?
