About the picture layout:

Pictures as internet files can be very time consuming to open or download. Depending on the original source file they can be very large. When building this website, I have changed how I handle pictures. Since dial-up internet connections are still by far the most common way of accessing the internet, I began by modifing all pictures to make them a medium size compromise. Large enough to enjoy viewing and small enough to open or download in a reasonable amount of time on a dial up modem. Most of the pictures that have been submitted to me are of a smaller size and this fits in well with this format. However, many pictures that I am receiving are larger in size than what I have been using. I resize every larger picture and make them all about the same size for the website use.

Lately, where ever possible, I have been using both the original full size version along side the smaller, resized version. On pages that have mostly smaller originals and one or two larger originals, I put the two versions next to each other with the file size indicated below the pictures. On pages that have many large size originals, I made two versions of the same page. The dial up version is made with the smaller pictures, and the broadband version is made with the larger pictures. There aren't any limitiations, you can access either version with either type of connection, this is only a guideline to help indicate the relative size of the images used.
