My Thoughts on Persona Paper and the Photo Gallery Template

If you look at Persona Paper's roadmap (there is a link at the bottom of most pages, I believe), one thing mentioned for the future is a template. I love the idea of gallery posts, but hope the template is not too similar to some others I have seen. The key to a good gallery post, in my not-so-humble opinion, is how the reader is able to view the photos.

Ideally, the pictures could be viewed either by using arrows or buttons to go from one photo to another, or the viewer could choose to see the images in a slideshow. Having to click on a photo, close it and then repeat the process for each photo is a cumbersome method. Maybe it could be a third option in case someone only wanted to see one picture, but as the only option, it would leave a lot to be desired.

I look forward to seeing how the gallery template is designed when it is rolled out. It is a wonderful format that I will likely use often if well designed. I imagine some exciting things are in store for us. I am glad to be along for the ride.

I'm a one at a time girl, so haven't given much thought to this new feature.
