Image View: All thumbnails will display information on medium and size before opening, when the cursor rests on the thumbnail. This information is displayed as a function of the browser on the bottom left of the screen. The thumbnails open in a pop-up window, where you can run a slideshow, or print the chosen image – but right click is disabled. If you run the slideshow, the series begins with Slide 1, (sub)gallery 1, and not at the slide, or in the particular subgallery, that you have chosen to view.
I have chosen one of Jill’s orchard series to cheer me up as winter takes its first bite , but there is much to see and appreciate on this website, and one image goes nowhere near doing it justice.
Demo: Yes – see Work in Progress within the Pastel gallery.
EBay/Flickr: No.

  2. It seems to me, from the breadth and quality of your work, that it's only a matter of time, Jill. But I amended the post accordingly.
