As some of you may have noticed, a couple of new menu items have appeared under the main Forums menu at the top of the page - Latest Images and Popular Images.

This is a new image-browsing gallery I had made for the forum that should make it better for both those who are viewing photos and those posting them. :)

For those viewing the photos, when you click the link, it will give you a gallery page with all of the most recent or most popular images from the last seven days, depending on which link you click (it shows images from all the presentation forums on a single page). This is far faster and easier than individually clicking on each post to see what's there (of course, you can still do that as well).

If you see an image you like, click it, and a pop-up window will appear with the thread for that image. Note that only the first image from the thread will show in the gallery, so again, if you like what you see, click the image as there may be even more to enjoy! Make sure you comment and like your favorites, of course. Once you're done with a post / image, press the "X" in the upper right corner to go back to the gallery page.

If you're posting images, this should drive more traffic to your photos. Often new posts can get buried and go unnoticed. The images in the "Latest Images" gallery are always in the order they are posted, so even if your thread gets pushed down right away, your photos still have a chance to get plenty of attention. :)

During testing, I found that using these galleries is a very fast and efficient way to browse the photos on the presentation forums. It's way easier to get to the threads you want and I think it's more enjoyable too. I find myself looking through the images far more than I did before, simply because it's so convenient to do so.

Also, regarding the Popular Images page - the images in that gallery are based on likes. So, if you're posting more than a single image in your thread, make sure you put your best photo first so it gets the most attention in the "Latest Images" gallery. As users, if you see an image you like, make sure to hit the "like" button to help the poster rank higher in the Popular Images gallery (even if you post a comment - comments aren't counted towards "popular" at this time.)

Let me know what you think or if you have any questions. I'm cross-posting this in all the presentation forums.
