Sometimes however hard you try things just don’t go as planned and you have to fix corrupt images. Internet connections can drop because of interference from nearby electrical gadgets that you have no control over, and power can fail at the most inconvenient time or you could be uploading on-the-go and simply loose connectivity. It’s frustrating, however if your internet connection drops when you are uploading a large file collection the problems are compounded. You might not know which images have uploaded and which files were still in the queue, and sorting that sort of mess out can be very time consuming. So here’s a trick to vastly ease the pain.
For a super easy display of images on a web page, use the scrolling folio page. Whether it be a portfolio, event, sample images for a client or even product photos, this page type has always been great for SEO but also has the benefit of offering sales options from each image if required. Theimagefile has just released some updates to this page type which now makes it even better and easier to use. (more…)
