LAUNCH: Rick Scott Photography

When you go to the Rick Scott’s Photography Site and navigate into the Collections section, you’ll get a quick note that comes up and tells you how to navigate through the images and collections with your keyboard.


Doing the extra work to get this feature in the site we feel was well worth the effort, and something we’ll probably be doing on a lot of future flash sites. The main perk is that the user can close the thumbnail navigation and give the entire browser window to the image (which is what they are there to see).

Personally I prefer to navigate photo sites using the keyboard because you don’t need to make sure your mouse stays hovered over an arrow or do the work to keep clicking from thumbnail to thumbnail… you just use the left and right arrow keys to advance through the photos and up and down to go between sets. It allows you to concentrate more on the photos than the navigating.
