Default Suggestions for the presentation

The functionality has been improving today, no doubt

I'm slowly getting used to the new look, and I'd suggest:

- To include the titles of the photos in the gallery (as in the old TE), for some reason in the new site they are shown only in the critiques section

- To find a suitable solution to the presentation of vertical shots, they simply take too much space in the gallery

- The "faces" of selected favorites on the right side are disturbing, just a row in the "snapshot" indicating the number of favorites would be enough (but don't use the free space for more advertising, pls)

- White frames are barely seen against the new background, and maybe a somewhat darker background is better

- The "next photo" and "previous photo" on the sides of the photos are not useful and are disturbing, and could be eliminated

- When we open the photo, the title on top is enough, the indication of the name of the member and the number of points is not necessary "Title by member !*! (12345)" is simple too long

- The "most viewed" and "favorite photos" possibilities seen when we open the gallery of a certain location or country could also be relevant at the individual galleries of each member, so when we take a look at the gallery of a member new to us, we could also go directly to those photos, instead of just taking a look at his/her most recent ones

I agree with all you said

and i tell it in a lot of threads, hope they'll find a solution to the issue of the location par regions : the number of cities is limited and for example Ile de France in North of France stops at the letter C

- Very important photo information, such as camera, gear, filters. Also if the camera belong to some themes or travelogues, etc.
- There is no way to know if a photo has been selected by somebody as favourite unless you check the gallery of each photographer or general gallery, but not photo by photo.
- No indication if somebody has replied to one’s critique, unless checking in the discussion page, which is not convenient. Also, we cannot see other people’s discussions of a particular photo. There were many interesting discussions where tips and techniques were explained…. Now they are somewhere lost or known to the two people exchanging posts.
- The size of a portrait format thumbnail is way too disproportional to the landscape format. Looks horrible.
- I cannot find My Groups. I used to add fellow members to lists, so they can be easily checked for recent posts. They are not necessarily your favorites. Now I do not see them.
- We do not see the points of each photo by looking at the thumbnail. If I want to see my own point for each photo I have to check photo by photo.
- I cant see if a WS was considered useful or not, neither mine or somebody’s else.
- I cannot mark a critique useful from the page that shows all critiques of certain member. I have to go to the specific photo.

me after pastadog + my 2 cents:
-the TE Logo is to big (I mean when I open the page I cant stop looking at this Logo instead of looking at the pictures)
-I dont like the "faces" of favorites so close to my pictures and "recent activity", its just to close and disturb, I prefer link to them like it was before
-spaces between the pictures!(I have all formats- square, horizontal,vertical- and together just doesnt look good)
thank you
