image and gallery updates

Galleries now easier to navigate, and zoom is back... tell us what else you want!

We've been beavering away here at over Easter to make our image galleries a bit more useful. there's lots of lovely pics on the site and we know how some of you like to dig down to the detail when you're looking at stuff, so we've done a bit of tinkering to make moving around the galleries easier, and added a zoom function too.

Image galleries now open in a new tab, so you can get back to whatever you were looking at more easily. They also have a control bar across the top, so you can scroll through the images. On top of that, you can simply click on the image and it'll take you to the next one.

There's a zoom function too: click on the magnifying glass on the right of the control bar to bring up a bigger version of the pic, if there is one. You can click anywhere to go back to the gallery page.

We're always trying to make the ol' user experience better, so if there's anything you want to see on the site please let us know by adding a comment below, and we'll add it to the big list...

Gallery images don't load in a new tab if you pick one of the thumbnails.

That's what we are working on next rjw - they used to with our old image handling system.
