Suggestion for search results

Postby jayfish » Sun Apr 01, 2012 11:29 pm

love the site!

wish i had the option to see search results as a gallery instead of a text list. often it's easier for me to pinpoint a camera as a picture rather than a name.

plus, pictures are pretty.

It is easily doable, I can do it in 2 minutes, though I am not sure what to do with the cameras without photos. Search list (especially if it is long) may get uneven and barely readable if there will be multiple spots without photos. What do you think?

Another possibility is to post a link to thumbnails-only search results, but in this case you'll miss a camera if it does not have a thumbnail :?

i was thinking just a grid of thumbnails. yeah, the cameras without photos would be missing but this wouldn't be a definitive set of results, just more of an easily browse-able gallery of say, all rolleiflexes. if you wanted a full set of results, you could see the text version instead. maybe a "warning" on the image results page saying if it's not a complete list?

thanks!

oh! yes, i figured this would just be a link from the main search results page, nothing fancy.

Sure, try now ;)
There is a link at the top of each search result now.
