I'm curious as to which photo option you guys prefer? slideshow or thumbnail?
I like the thumbnail option. I used both when I first started, but find thumbnail suits my style better.
Thumbnail because you can see all the photos and choose which to expand - but you get an ugly bit of white space if your photos are a mixture of whitespace and landscape!
I prefer thumbnail when reading hubs, as like you've mentioned Lissie you can choose which images to look at. But, I was curious as to what others thought. Because, I know when using them, I don't like the white space left when one photo may be taller than the rest. And, it seems no matter my cropping and resizing abilities, I can never get it right.
Has anyone else had a problem with this? Even if I set all the heights the same, there's usually one picture that remains taller than the rest, creating the ugly white space. I try making those pictures my first image, but eh, I still don't like it. Ha.
I figure with the slideshow, fewer people would actually look through the photos.
Anyways, any more thoughts?
Whatever I feel best serves the hub and the presentation of the content.
Which in my case is usually thumbnail.

I have received an email from an editor as follows -'please remove walls of photos by consolidating them into a photo capsule and using the "thumbnail" option to create a slideshow. Feel free to use a few throughout the piece'.I can't find a thumbnail option and I'm bamboozled. Can anyone...

I would like to have a lot of photos for some hubs. However, the page loading time would be a killer.But I don't like using the Slideshow option. To me, the red arrows to navigate the slideshow are too low. They almost sit on the title of the capsule below and look like they belong to THAT capsule....

I have seen in most of the hubs about how they are keeping thumbnail images even after a list of photos. for example: if we have 20 pics, how we can keep only 5 or 6 thumbnail images on above the slide show.

Does anyone know if it is possible to adjust the thumbnail of a hub? One of my thumbnails is of a picture which is portrait of a person and the way that it has been cut makes it look a bit strange as his head is cut off so ideally it would be adjusted so that his head was included?Is there a way to...

When using the thumbnail option with the pictures. Is there a way to alter the extra white space when one picture is taller than another, leaving a huge white space. Or is just something I will have to get used to?

The slideshow does not suit many hubs and the horrible black button ruins the first photo. Please allow authors to choose whether they want it or not. You get a slideshow with just 2 or 3 photos which is silly.
