Full screen photo viewer previews
Here is a demo of my broadband enhanced high resolution photo viewer.

The 1st photo was taken at Elvaston Castle Steam Rally, Derbyshire on Sunday 4th July 2004.
The 2nd photo was taken from the top of Repton Church on Friday 2nd July 2004
If you have a screen resolution of 1024x768 and are using Microsoft Internet explorer
then you will be seeing the photo at its best !
Just click on a thumbnail below to view the full-screen version. Once you have finished viewing the
large photo just click anywhere on the photo to close the viewer or wait 60 seconds.

*note 1 - The presentation is optimized to make maximum use of a 1024x768 screen size when used in conjunction with Microsoft Internet Explorer.
If you view at a higher screen resolution than this, then the visual impact will be reduced!
*note 2 - Microsoft browser is the ONLY one which supports Kiosk mode (full-screen mode), If you use another brand of browser then you will need a
higher screen resolution to allow for the extra space taken up by icons/scrollbars/window controls etc.
