IMAGEVUE X5 POSITIVE & CONSTRUCTIVE FEEDBACK
mjau-mjau wrote:Attention! Massive Update!
#1. Will there be commenting and the ability to preview image comments?
#2. When on the preview page, will you also have "Social" share buttons?
#3. When you hover on an thumbnail, will it display the number of comments too?
#4. When clicking on the Next / Previous buttons in preview mode OR full screen mode, I find if you "slightly" move your mouse off the [>] button, you lose the preview or full screen preview.
Could you please make it like X2 where if you click the 60% RHS of the screen, it advances, and if you click on the 40% LHS of the screen, it goes back??
It just seems a little fiddly, having to try and find which image you were up to, and resume the slide show, etc.
#5. Will X5 have the ability to auto create Thumbnails, Preview image and Full Size (not original, but resized Full image)? (e.g. Per gallery image resize in X2)
#6. Your website was displaying an Internal Server Error 505 at URL, approx 30 mins after my previous post, when visiting: http://mjau-mjau.com/updates/#19sep14

#7a. When dragging my mouse back, in Slideshow/Big Awesome/
, it was nice and smooth. I then clicked the Full Screen view, and it went backwards again. I clicked again on Full Screen and it went backwards. I then clicked on the right hand side of the image and it went backwards... There seems to be some random event occurring after dragging the slideshow, that it continues to get stuck and go in the wrong direction, even when single clicking on the RHS of the image, OR the Full Screen button. Weird!!!
It seemed to occur if I double clicked instead of single clicked and doing so quickly, whilst on the << arrow, and dragging. The >> arrow seems fine. I cannot get the error to occur with the RHS >>.
The same thing also occurs Slideshow/Thumbnails/
when going foward, then moving backwards, and dragging it in reverse and double clicking. Click click click and then click it finally starts going forward.
#7b. On /slideshow/scale-fit/
it shows you can go backwards by clicking on the LHS of an image. Great!
Well done. I was getting worried that you could only go in reverse by Left << or Left Arrow on keyboard and by dragging it...
#7c. On /slideshow/inline/
, I click click click and it looks really smooth. I dragged it in reverse and so on. This is truly great coding! Very fluid.
However when I click click click click really quickly, it advances, advances, advances, goes backwards, goes backwards, advances, advances....
When I say goes backwards, I mean the frame starts sliding backwards from where it came, instead of going in the Right to Left direct of slides.
So I think this is the same issue as above, it gets into a locked pattern where it thinks it is going forward, you give it too many clicks and it goes backwards, OR, you go backwards a few times, and then Click Forwards, but it keeps going backwards. Very strange.
Drag forward, drag forward, drag forward, click click click, oops, went backwards during one of the clicks and then corrects itself...
I hope this info helps and I've been detailed enough.
#8. Exactly how does one exit out of the Full Screen slider? I cannot see any X to take the user back to some sort of standard page where they can see the menu. I guess Browser Back is the only option?
#9. Browser history and being able to go back images with back button of browser and forward too? I know in ImageVue X2, you could have it so that advancing through the photos and media would update the browser and have it recognise there was a different image. I think they refer to it as Flash Deep Linking. Is this possible with the new X5?
I just found going through a dozen images, then pressing back on the browser took me back to the previous page.
NOTE: History works in Slideshow mode, but doesn't
work when going from album to album etc.
Another image not found, and for the first time, a thumbnnail could not be found.
Can this carousel be made so when it gets to the end, it doesn't then slide all the way back to he start? Instead it just continues and loops from the end to the start again? Or perhaps add a tall | or gap to distinguish the end / start?
Can you have the carousel's set to auto slide? e.g. easing slowly? 1KM per hour? or xxx measurement of speed?
I spoke to soon, the next Carousel after Auto Height does this in a similar way, but it automatically moves all of the current images off the screen, and then pulls in the next, rather than a "one image at a time" method...
#12. Video Carousel! WOW!
That is fantastic! A brilliant idea!!!
I guess Video Auto Scroll would be a difficult one. Auto slide but when video playing, stop sliding.
#13. Ok this might be a complicated question... But when you have an item on the coursel or slideshow, is thre a way to "activate" an element, so that you can be taken to that specific page? e.g. if you want to give someone a URL to a video on a carousel, rather than the whole carousel, you could do it in X2 due to Flash's deep linking. But there doesn't seem to be any way for a visitor to get a link to a specific part of the gallery (slide 10 of 30) or to a specific object only, and display that object only.
Perhaps some sort of 'read more' button or link on elements, where you can open that image in a new window within your gallery (not just an image within the browser window)... I guess this is a little confusing, but having people copy the link of X out of 100 is useful, as then the visitor can find slide number 75 out of 100, without going through ALL other images... So is this possible?
#14. Within album /albums/black-and-white/, you don't actually mention the setting to have all images set to B+W or Sepia. p.s. More slideshow images are missing here too.
Are there filter overlays that can do this where they don't modify the image and /or simply manipulate the output? Sepia, Toy Cam, Vintage, B&W, etc, just applied to a gallery rather than permanent changes to the images.
has a missing thumbnail, but the preview image (slideshow) is however visible... FYI.
many of the preview images are missing here. FYI.
has lots of missing images too. FYI.
#18. An idea for you. To allow owners to preview what things look like on the front end, you could have a similar X2 Admin Menu that appears on the front-end when logged in as admin in the backend. Then when on an album, you can change each and every option until you get it the way you like. Then go to the Admin area, and copy the settings you selected in the front-end's Admin Menu.
e.g. Transition, Easing, Delay, Theme, Style, Thumbnail size, Preview size, Layout type, Layout style, xxxx, yyy, zzz. All as drop-down boxes in each field (some options disappearing when not available when a certain theme or layout is chosen - obviously).
Or even have the front-end admin menu bar generate some code so that it can be pasted into the backend, and it automatically imports the settings into the active gallery being edited!
p.s. You could even allow the admin to set the "default" layout, by which all new albums are created from (rather than only the Imagevue default). I say this simply from seeing the multitude of options already available!
