The Main Gallery contains personal photographs collected over the years as well as contributions from various sources. The main gallery view presents a number of individual upper level galleries, each of which contains either photographs or a listing of one or more sub-galleries. Each sub-gallery then reflects this same organizational process carried out to one or more deeper levels. To enter the Main Gallery click here or click the Main Gallery option under the Gallery Menu on the left.
There are several ways to navigate the galleries and several ways to view them. Each gallery is initially presented as a series of links usually containing a thumbnail. Clicking on a link or thumnail will take you either a lower level sub-gallery or to a detail screen for a particular photograph. Each photo detail screen then allows you to view a popup of the photo by clicking on it, which then displays the full original photo if the original photo is indeed larger than the detail photo. The detail screen also provides you with access to a slide show of all the other photos in the current gallery. You can also move backwards and forwards through the current gallery using the navigiation buttons or the photo scroller.
