Spring And Strange Slideshows

Now that March has arrived, I wanted to do a slideshow with bright and colorful pictures that would herald the approach of Spring, but I got sidetracked by something. The slideshow widget used by WordPress (the GMC host) has either changed or my memory is worse than I thought, because no matter what size pictures I use, they end up appearing too small on the final product. Each picture is shrunk and surrounded by lots of empty black space. I looked back at previous posts with slideshows, and they all seem smaller than I remembered  too. (Here’s an example.) I’m probably just misremembering, but I suppose it’s also possible that they’ve changed the way they do them, which has affected old ones too.

Anyhow, I thought I’d try something different with this one. As you can see below, the pictures are shown in a variety of sizes. If you click on any of them, you’ll be taken to a viewer that allows you to go through the full-size pictures at your own pace. (Important note: to return to the main page, click on the tiny ‘x’ in the upper left corner of the viewer.)

  1. Thank You! I had just about convinced myself that it was my Swiss-cheese memory playing its usual tricks, but maybe the trickster is WP.
