Test new Picture Postcard

October 18, 2014  •  10 Comments

Hello,

I've sent this message to the few people who have registered on my Zenfolio website, and a couple of ring-ins. I hope you don't mind being a guinea pig.

Soon I will relaunch, as a blog, the Picture Postcard—a newsletter that I first published in 2006. I haven't published a PP since January 2013. Changes in my circumstances will soon see me with time available to resurrect it. As blogging is less labour intensive than the way I used to produce the PP, that makes me happy.

I want the Blog to have a useful feature that existed in the previous Picture Postcards produced as interactive PDFs; the ability for the reader to toggle before and after images, to better understand the text narrative.

This Blog entry is a skeletal prototype—a preview.

If you view it on a desktop, you can toggle the 'before' and 'after' images by clicking the buttons below the image.

If you view it on a tablet, you should achieve the same effect by briefly holding on a button and releasing. I've tested it on an iPad and an Android tablet and it seems to work OK once you get the hang of the touch-hold-release routine.

I'm interested to know whether this post's intended functionality works OK for you. By clicking the BEFORE button you should be able to see the image as captured by the camera. Click the AFTER button to restore the processed version.

I'd appreciate you posting a comment to let me know. You may wish to subscribe using the RSS link above, or register on my site. I will use my site's contact list to send future notifications of posts.

Feel free to share with anyone.

The bird is a Reed Warbler that I photographed beside the Macintyre River in Inverell a couple of weeks ago. I'll have more to say about my quest to photograph this elusive species in an edition of Picture Postcard in the near future.

Kind regards,

Rob

Rob, so glad to have Picture Postcard back - it always used to enliven a dull day. Happy birthday and good luck with the retirement! BTW it all comes out good on my PC.

Very beautiful, Rob. Both interactive items work fine for me and I look forward to reading your blog when you retire. Be warned ... you will become even busier when retired!

Rob, If this is an illistration what you can produce within your very busy working time frame , I struggle to imagine what you will create when you retire. I am in awe of your talent and dedication.
