Nancy’s Photo a Week Challenge: Opening

This is an experiment on using the new editor photo gallery. I prefer to show my photos in full. Does this way of viewing photos work for you? Please let me know

A bit of Aussie music for you

    1. Thanks Lisa. I tried to click and it even opened the photos on my phone. I’ll see if there is a setting I may have missed. Was it for all the photos?


  1. The gallery works and I can click on it to view the photos larger, but I can’t say I’m a big fan. I like to see photos (yours and mine) at a decent size right off the bat. Maybe I’ll click on the gallery to do that and maybe I won’t. And if I do, the verticals don’t get the same exposure as the horizontals. I guess I’d prefer to pick what size you see rather than leave it up to the WordPress editor. Nice photos though.

    1. That is the window in my office at home. That Magpie Lark or Pee Wee was often hanging around looking for insects around the window but also having a peek in every now and then πŸ™‚ Thanks for the feedback Susan

  2. I hadn’t thought about the fact that you don’t use galleries. Just prefer to see the detail? I’ve not had much online time and am having a quick catch up now on my phone as I’m out again this evening. It looks fine but I’ll know better on the laptop. Easy enough to do? πŸ€”πŸ’•πŸ’•

    1. It is rather tedious and time consuming to add photos one at a time to get the full view. No one is going to open lots of images. The foirst lot was a group of six and then three but still I am not content πŸ™‚ Have a wonderful evening Jo πŸ™‚


  3. It works well when you have a good collection in your gallery. Clicking on one photo opens the gallery and one can page through the collection. I have a problem with the black background not showing off the photos well especially like in your case with darker framing of your photos. I love the little bird opening its beak and those tiny feathers surrounding it.

  4. I am viewing this post via the Reader and the gallery slide show is working just fine.
    I like the Block Editor galleries, speeds things up, but a gallery slide show is always going to show the images a little smaller than an individual view. What I have noticed is if the photo has been resized (like you and I tend to do) it doesn’t show up individually as well as a larger version, whereas previously it didn’t make much difference. The decision is all yours yours mate! πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for the feedback Sue. Think the adding of photos one by one with using the captions may be the way unless the photos speak for themselves. I will see what happens πŸ™‚
