Is there a way to view consecutive photos in an album without the need to go back to the thumbnails in order to choose the next one? In other words, is there a "Next" , or "Prev" button that I haven't found?

If you start at the beginning of an album, look at the bottom of the picture and click on the arrow to the right, that will advance you to the next one

I think, maybe, that this is another Firefox incompatibility feature: I see no arrows at all. I've tried pressing Ctl-A to see all controls, but there are no arrows or buttons visible at all.

For what browsers does it actually work?

Or perhaps there is another method of looking at albums, other than clicking the Albums button at the top of the screen,

Hi Gary

I think it might be a "your computer" compatibility problem - arrows are there for me using Firefox on Windows 7, just as Jason shows by the bottom corners of the image.

If there isn't a "previous" or "next" photo then the relevant button disappears.

The arrows work ok for me on an iPad, also on my PC with The current version of IE.

Hi Gary,

They work for me in Firefox and Chrome on Win7.


Edit: What there doesn't seem to be, which is a bit annoying, is a way of getting back to the albums view from the end of a series of pictures in an album, other than clicking the back button loads of times. If the member has a profile you can click on their name and then click photos, but if they don't have a profile there is nothing.

Unlikely to be Firefox, more likely to be Adblock, if you are using it it can block the arrows.

In Firefox (and I assume IE) if you click on the back page arrow in the browser "Navigation" toolbar with the RIGHT mouse button you'll see the last few (15 in my case) pages that you've viewed. As each photo in an album comes up on a new page you can use that to quickly skim back through an album. In Firefox each album image is called "Model Engineer", but the album "home" page is labelled "Albums- Model Engineer"

Worth trying to see if it works for you, certainly quicker than scrolling back one image at a time.

You were right, it was Adblock. I must remember to switch it off next time I look at an album.

By the way, is the massive list of all albums in any particular sequence? It appears to be random to me.

Most recently created or updated (photos added) album at the top.
