Like browsing through the various photo geocaching galleries, but hate having to click through those tiny thumbnail images? Tired of having to go through multiple steps just to see an image in its original size? This script fixes all that. This is recommended for those with a broadband connection. If you're on a dial-up, you should probably stick with the thumbnail images.
This script does four things:
- Replaces all thumbnail images with their corresponding 300 pixel-width images.
- Rewrites the page's table to show images in a 2-up format, instead of a 4-up format, to retain the same approximate page width.
- Changes images so that clicking on them will open the original image in a new tab (or window).
- Changes the image's caption into a link, that will open the image's log in a new tab (or window). If you are already viewing a log gallery, clicking the caption will redisplay that log, with the image in the top viewbox.
Normal gallery page:
Enhanced gallery page:
This works on the "most recent photos" gallery, cache page and travel bug page galleries, log galleries (including benchmarks), and profile galleries.
NOTE: By now, everyone should have updated to Greasemonkey 0.6.4 or better, so I'm no longer providing the extension work-around.
- v1.5 (2010-02-11) - Update to accomodate site changes.
- v1.4 (2009-02-09) - Added Banner Galleries. Since this adds a new URL to the script, you may need to uninstall any previous version before installing this version, so it will recognize the Banner Gallery pages.
- v1.3 (2008-11-28) - Update to accommodate site change.
- v1.2 (2006-04-19) - Update to accommodate change to image server name.
- v1.1 (2005-11-20) - When viewing a log gallery, clicking on the caption now redisplays the page with that image in the viewbox. Previously, the caption was not a link in log galleries. The change was necessary to allow log owners to select an image for editing, and to view notes attached to an image.
Greasemonkey 0.6.4 (Firefox 1.5) Compatible!
