On some hubs I have used the photo capsule and people are visiting the site to view the images/slide show. On some hubs where I have photos, people visit but the statistics for the slideshow is not moving.This is ironic because even though five or more photos produce a slideshow, the photos are open even though there is an arrow to play the slideshow.
After thinking it through i realize that i [a] need to delete the photos where the statistics are not moving and replace them with fresh,new ones or [b] leave the old photos and add a new slideshow.
I have gathered the photos and all that is left to do is upload and caption them. Another option[c] is to link them to another website and thus discover the problem.
The slideshow stats will only click over if visitors choose to view the photos as a slideshow.
They may well be enjoying the images as part of the Hub without bothering about the slideshow.
I'm just wondering why you're concerned about it?
Good question, Marisa Wright. I am wondering if the photos I am choosing are effective and attractive. I am in a position where I need traffic to my websites.Iif visitors do not come for content, maybe they will come because of the images and by chance read the content. I am also trying to find my niche. I believe I know what it is but I ineed traffic to confirm it.Thanks for responding.
Aoiffe, people can't find your images on HubPages unless you label them with descriptive captions. Google can't "see" images, it has to go by the title.
So making the images more attractive won't improve the number of visitors - changing the captions may.
Thanks for the insight. I will make more descriptive captions a priority for photos. By the way, how do I deal with original videos? Does the same apply?

I know traffic is a problem everywhere it seems; I'm not talking about low traffic, here. We all need to be aware of the HP's photo capsule may be affecting our bounce rates. There is a real problem if you use the photo capsule for anything-- even the intro photo. I'm NOT referring to the images...

Is there a way to upload old photos to our hubs for HP and/or niches?I'm planning to resubmit my Visiting in Grand Canyon in winter hub to Wander Wisdom before the end of the year. But my photos I hope to get to my brother are 15 years old from my mother's camera. I just have copies. Is there a way...

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.

Argh, this is driving me mad. I was giving a final once-over on one of my transferred-from-Squidoo accounts, now that I've updated all its images, only to find that all the illustrations in " thumbnail" photo capsules are partly covered up by a big black "See all 43 photos on...

I don't see where else to place this issue--I don't think it's exactly a "bug," but more of a change that was made???At any rate, the problem is, it used to be that when you clicked on any photo in any hub, it would open the photo alone in a new temporary window without taking you away...
