Larger Images Merely One Click Away
In order to conserve
bandwidth and allow our users to see our
website (please note that this does NOT
apply to the HTML or PDF newsletter -- we do not yet offer
that function in the newsletters) as quickly as possible,
ANN publishes all of the pictures and graphics accompanying our
stories in a default 100 pixel-wide "thumbnail" format. This
format helps balance the need to preserve image clarity, while also
saving valuable resources and bandwidth.
As was covered in a previous FAQ that
concerned viewing options for ANN's Top News page, our readers
can select the options of displaying fullsized graphics, and even
no graphics at all -- but again, we can't imagine who would want
read our stories WITHOUT pictures (don't make us use the Hugh
Hefner comparison again!)
The best compromise (and most popular user selection by far) is
to show pictures and graphics as thumbnails within each story. This
allows our site to load onto slower computers almost as quickly as
it would without ANY graphics at all, while making sure our stories
are visually interesting, as well as informative to read.
But don't worry: choosing thumbnails doesn't mean you now need
to squint to see our pictures. Through the wonders of modern
technology, all you need to do is click on the thumbnail of any
picture, graphic, TFR depiction... ANY graphic on our site, and the
fullsize image will then open in a new window... such as this.
Go ahead... try it!
