Viewing Betterphoto gallery photos


Is there a way to view gallery photos here without having to scroll up and down to see a photo?

  Hi Lynnmarie,
I think this has more to do with your screen size or your computer. On my 24" IMAC at home, the images all fit easily on the screen but on my 15" MacBook (laptop) I have to scroll to see them as well.
Cheers,
Carlton

  Thanks, Carlton! In the market for a new desktop with larger screen than my laptop so may solve that problem. Appreciate your reply...Lynnmarie

  Lynnmarie; you may also be able to get around it on your current machine, by upping your display resolution (if it can go higher.) For instance, if your current setting is perhaps, 1024x768 resolution, and many BP'ers size their photos to 800 on the long side, then right off the bat, a "tall" (portrait orientation) image will not fit vertically in your browser window, as your screen's pixel height is only 768 to begin with. Then things like your browser's button bar, address bar, etc., take up even more of those 768 vertical pixels.
If your computer supports a higher resolution setting, try it out. Of course, all your fonts will get tinier, and it can be quite an adjustment to go to higher resolution screen settings, if you're used to a particular setting... Also, your browser itself probably has setting you can change, to hide the Status Bar, the Address Bar, the Button Bar, etc.---hiding those things will give you more vertical pixel space to devote to the image, rather than the browser's tools/icons/"wasted space"...
My MacBook Pro is set to 1440x900---so I've got 900 vertical, and if I do it just right, I can get an 800-pixel-tall image to fit on the screen precisely, top to bottom, without scrolling... which means the browser frame and junk is taking up about 100 pixels, vertically...
