Photos History
Jeff Waldock's Photos : History
18 June 2001 New digital images section added
3 June 2001 New images added - there are now 436.
25 August 2000 New images added - there are now 420, including some recent images from Scotland (July 2000).
10 January 2000 A number of images have been added to the site - there are now 248 altogether.
Also, the scripts used for navigating the site have been updated. These now present images in date order (most recent first), and provide links to higher resolution versions of the images. The basic thumbnails are 100 pixels max in either dimension, and the basic larger version, received when you click on the thumbnail, is 600 pixels max. The other sizes commonly provided are 1200 and 1500 pixels.
To aid navigation through a largish number of pictures, links to each page are now provided at the bottom of the frame.
29 Nov 1999 Following acquisition of a slide scanner - an Agfa Duoscan - I am embarking on a major update to the images on this web site. Over the course of the next few months I will be adding many more images from my collection of transparencies. Check back often!
Presently, this does mean that the images that WERE available (and which were scanned from prints) are no longer available in the previous form - you can, however, find these from this link.
The photos are now available in a variety of resolutions. The thumbnails are chosen to have a maximum resolution of 100 pixels in either dimension; the 'main' offering of 600 pixels is available by double-clicking on the thumbnail, and in most cases resolutions of 900, 1200 and 1500 pixels are also offered. The latter can result in file sizes in excess of 1Mb.
All images are compressed to JPG format, using a quality setting of 90%. These various copies of the original scanned images have been created using the excellent ThumbNailer program from Smaller Animals Software.
The higher resolutions are provided if they exist via links beneath the thumbnail - if you want to download rather than view these, you should use the usual method of holding down the shift key while clicking on the link.
March 1999 This web-site set up using some of the photos I had scanned in from prints. This system is not ideal!
Set up the basic system for web-based delivery of the pictures, using Perl CGI scripts.
