Sharon, it wouldn’t let me leave my comment on the slide show part, so I’m leaving it here. We have 256 DSL, and it took a little over two minutes to load everything. The first time through, during that 2 minutes, each image was several seconds from the next, but after that, the images came down quickly, one after another.
Sharon it wouldn’t let me leave my comment on the slide show part either. I’m on dial up and it took a couple of minutes to load – the images were slow in cascading after one another. Nowhere near as quick as on the other blog site you’d seen it on – which seems a little odd.
I can’t leave a comment for the slide show either (nothing happens when I clicked the comment link). But… I think it’s very cool. I love the photos you used for your slides.
I’ve seen this feature offered at http://flagrantdisregard.com/flickr/ and had thought about putting one on my cat blog. But having recently switched to DSL from dial-up I am, like you, concerned about how it would effect dial-up users. So I will be interested in their comments too. Maybe putting it on another page like you did would help(?)
An interesting ap. I’m not sure if I like it with the photos stacking on top of the other. Think I’ll stick with Film Loop when I need to put photos up. The only negative feedback I got was from folks who do not like anything moving on their screens.
Sharon, my dial up almost instently went to the site, the slide show only took much less then a minute to load, usually I can drink a cup of coffee waiting for a site to load, wonder if that will happen each time, will test it out, through out the day
Hello Sharon. I looked at slide.com, was hooked and have made several slideshows of my own – all flowers etc so far, kind of colour studies. I wondered about putting the url for the slideshow index page on my blog, so people could go there if they chose, and look at whichever one they wanted? Next best thing to actually having the pics in the blog itself. But can that index page be accessed by non-members? Your link to another part of your website is sort of halfway between these ideas!
Barbara You can put the code on your blog – and if it is the index everyone can see it – but it will be in the blog itself as the indx page is part of the blog ie the front page – hope this makes sense-
