Bringing you up-to-date with some behind-the-scenes activity over the last couple of weeks...

We've made some subtle changes to the website as we strive to improve the user experience. It's also been a chance to lay the foundations for future upgrades, writing some cleaner code and simplifying the site layout.

Firstly, all the 'Client Area' functions are now handily grouped on the new top bar (below), making it even easier to find your purchases, gallery invitations and lightboxes:



We've also added a thumbnail view to the bottom of the home page slideshow (below), making navigation through the images that little bit easier. Also, it's worth noting that when you hover your mouse over any of our slideshows, 'next' and 'previous' arrows magically appear so you can skip through the images at your own pace:






You'll find a Facebook 'Share' button (left) on all of our galleries and images. So if you find a pic of yourself in our archives, you can share it on your wall with just a couple of clickety-clicks!

Our new social networking toolbar (right) brings together the links to our feeds, streams, tweets and buzzes! The toolbar is fixed to the right hand side of your browser window, making it available no matter where you are on the site.


A keyword search is now that little bit easier. All the keywords associated with a given images are now in a simple comma separated list (below).

That means just one click on a keyword is required to find associated piccies. We've also made the keywords a bit easier to find as they float in a box under each image...



Each gallery has a 'View Slideshow' option. The slideshow is now housed within a TGS customised page (below) to keep everything neat and tidy...



We mentioned our Flickr Photostream earlier on. Our local football and cricket photos are being exported to the popular photo-sharing site to make them even easier to find and view...



More changes are on the way. Much cross-browser testing has taken place but feedback, as always, is welcome!
