For many of us, especially those of us who have passed the half-century mark, small images have become the hobgoblins of annoying web sites. For some time now, I have been receiving e-mail requests for bigger images in the eZine (so readers can see what the heck the story is talking about) or, if not bigger images on the web page, for that groovy web site option of the expanding picture. (Click on an image and boom … it gets bigger!) Well, our brand-new content coordinator, Matt Becker (who also submitted an entry to the Reader’s Project Gallery), is not even close to 50 years old, so when he heard of our dilemma, he just fixed the pictures to get big when you click. (Huh, go figure. Somehow I thought it would be trickier and more complicated than that.)
So, without further ado, let me announce the arrival of the “big picture when you click” format eZine!
It is my hope that the bigger images will make the eZine more enjoyable and maybe even easier to understand. If you like the new feature, be sure to drop Matt an e-mail and say thanks. If you don’t, there are plenty of hobgoblin-plagued web sites that will still support your apparent need to squint.
