[quote=“Ryan Paddy”]I’m experimenting with a scattering of photos on the homepage. It turns out they need to be much bigger than I thought so that their detail can be visible, otherwise they are just little blurry smears. Which in turn means I could only fit three photos in withotu using too much screen space.
The photos I chosen for this example are just some from across the projects & affiliates that I thought were attractive snaps of nice costumes, I haven’t asked anyone for permission yet.
The main thing I feel is missing in that sampling is more “action” shots where characters are interacting or clearly doing somethig, but I couldn’t find any that were really attractive photos. Action shots are harder to do well that portraits.
If we want to show a greater variety then maybe we could make about three of these scatter images, and show them randomly. Requiring 9 photos in total. This will slow down the load time a bit for people who visit just occaisonally, but allow us to show
Adam, could you point me to smaller online versions of the pics you’ve gathered or something? I just want to get an idea of what they’re like.[/quote]
And I’ve tried out another image here:
I think it might work better when there’s a “happy” shot in amongst them.
Also, I think the random image idea could work pretty well for it.
