More fun with Original
That got me thinking about the possibility of speeding a little bit my photo album.
When you click a photo in one of my galleries, you end on a page with the selected photo centered, and with two thumbnails in the two sides of the photo, to navigate to the next/previous photos.
A typical behaviour would be to see one photo (and that takes a few seconds), and click on the “next” thumbnail to see the next photo. When you click, you are not anymore interested in the current photo, and you have to wait until the page with the next photo loads in your navigator. Surely enough, this time will be dominated by the time to load the next, big, central image (plus any fixed delay determinated by your ping).
The end result is that the user can navigate to the next/previous photos without any appreciable delay (at least, if they really look at the central photo), making it a snappier experience.
Needless to say, that makes the code a bit trickier, and I had to remove some hardcoded (read calculated by php) widths and heights, and that
In the TODO list,
