Getting the most out of the image galleries
XXSethontheRoad.com is designed as a flexible digital
gallery, one that has its own preset "sequence" of images
and text but still allows viewers to look at and compare any
set of images or jump to a specific series of images. To see
the entire sequence of images, simply click on the "next"
button in the bottom right-hand corner of every page. If you
would like to see an image enlarged and in better detail,
click directly on the image. A pop-up window will appear
with the enlarged image. You can keep these images open
at any time without interrupting the sequence of images in
the rest of the site; just click back to the window containing
the smaller image and continue on by clicking on the "next"
site is additional functionality which allows you to better
and more dynamically navigate the site. A header at the top
of each page will tell you what section you are in (e.g.
"Europe" or "South America"), and that section title will
also appear on the left-hand menu bar in a darker, bolder
orange color. Clicking on any of the lighter-colored section
titles in the menu bar will take you to the beginning of that
section, while clicking the section title that you are already
in will cause a new pop-up window to appear with an index of
all chapters or series for that section. Click on any chapter
title in the pop-up window to go directly to that chapter (you
can try it right now with the menu bar in the introduction!).
each page, in the header just above the images. Below the
section title is a list of each city or region visited within
that continent. Clicking on any one of these city/region
titles will cause a new pop-up window to appear that
contains an "index" of all the images from that given
area. Clicking on the image title or thumbnail will produce
yet another window containing an enlarged version of the
image. I have added functionality in this way (i.e. creating
new windows for individual images from the index) so
viewers can jump to or compare specific images without
interrupting the overall sequence--and I hope this feature
comes in handy!
