Amazing New Photo Feature on UKC

Web Genius Nick Smith has added an amazing new feature to the UKC photo galleries.

The new viewing feature requires a plug-in from Piclens:

"PicLens instantly transforms your browser into a full-screen, 3D experience for viewing images on the web. Photos will come to life via a cinematic presentation that goes well beyond the confines of the traditional browser window. With PicLens, browsing and viewing images on the web will never be the same again."

Download the plug-in here:

Currently the Piclens feature is available on the Top 200 gallery, the New this Week gallery and the Top 10 photo's of the week.

UKC is moving forward; we recently launched the new Classifieds area and we have other new photo and video features in the pipeline.

This is what we thought of the new photo feature:

Mick Ryan: "Wow.. that is gobsmakingly amazing."
Nick Smith: "Browsing the UKC Top 200 photos with it is just stunning!"
Jack Geldard: "Very Nice."

Try it out and please let us know what you think.

Cool, was looking at this over the weekend and was thinking it would be good for UKC

Downloaded it but how do I use it?

Better than me - I can't get it to download! Chris ;-(

Once it's downloaded you have to close the browser completely and then open it again. If you go to something like the top 200 gallery page, if you hover the mouse over a picture you should get a 'play' button. Click that

In my browser there is a little blue triangle button in the top right hand side. Navigate to the Top 200 photo's page. Hit the blue button. Experiment with it, and hit the button in the bottom left (of the new screen) to do a slide-show. Hope that makes sense. Jack
