Introducing the chlomo gallery: http://www.chlomo.org/gallery
Today we mark a new step in the evolution of chlomo by launching our very own image gallery. We already had all the sets in various threads but the chan structure is not the best for viewing pics (one picture per line; too much wasted space; poor navigation). It also poses a much larger problem with updating the galleries which is a major pain in the ass.
So, out of necesity, we built our own gallery to replace the old threads. The design puts focus on the pics and uses a masonry layout to put as many pics possible in one view and wasting very little space. We also added a download button for each set so you don't have to use any browser extensions or special programs for it.
Also out of necessity, this was built from scratch, meaning it might have some bugs and need polishing here and there, but it's a solution that suits our needs perfectly.
This is currently in beta. It's perfectly functional and you have all the photoshoots and photo sets in there, but there are some improvements that I want to make before I can consider this a finished product:
- make the site responsive (it should be optimized for mobile devices)
- add related videos for each set
- add screencaps
- add movie stills/promo pics
- add videos
- add next/previous buttons to navigate between the large pictures
So there you have it, your new destination for Chloë pics. Hope you like it and mention any feedback, suggestions or bug reporting in this thread
ps: I must mention that when you click on a thumbnail in the gallery you will get a larger image - that is not the full resolution one, but one that is scaled to 1600x720. You must click the "+" button to open the full resolution image. I did this because a lot of pictures can be huge (in terms of file size) so loading images would be slow for many users.
Also, for now there is no resolution specified for each image (only the file size) and I want to have that in there but I'm not sure how do-able it is so there is the possibility that we might not get that.
