A few photos at the zoo using a 500 mm cheap "long lens" "FIVE STAR" brand with T-mount. It worked surprisingly well. Handheld with Manfrotto monopod for stablization. The t-mount screws worked loose during this shoot so I did not make very many, and the close focus ability was not very good (about 25 or 30 feet is closest) but it was quite sharp.

The following pages constitute a slide show and photo selector.

The slide show itself is intended for sequential viewing of a collection of photographs.

Each page includes in its title bar, and underneath, the file name of the photo. This is useful when corresponding to someone about the photo.

To advance to the next photo: Clicking on the photo advances you to the next photo unless you are on a thumbnail or zoomed photo, in which case clicking it takes you to the 'normal' size.

Below each photo is a set of links (buttons) to advance, return, or exit the slide show.

To download an image: Right click the image and choose "save image as."

Each photo includes a button to ZOOM to a larger size. This size is intended to fill the screen for closer inspection, or for saving as a computer 'wallpaper', or for download to your disk for use in newsletters and other medium-resolution needs.

Each photo includes a button to zoom HUGE to the largest size. The largest size is typically 2,580 pixels wide (5 megapixel camera) or 3,200 pixels wide (8 megapixel camera). These sizes are suitable for full page printed advertising.

A thumbnail gallery is available for visually selecting photos. If you choose this option, clicking a thumbnail puts you into the slide show at the photo chosen; from there the slide show proceeds with the remainder of the show.
