    Competition Voting - auto thumbnail trial

    I have modified the competition voting (qualifying out of 10) to automatically make the images shrink to thumb size once a vote number out of 10 has been clicked.

    Please let us know if this helps the voting process

    It has made things a lot easier for me, particularly with larger classes. I did have one thumbnail shrink when I hadn't voted on it. Because all the thumbnails had turned small, I pressed the vote button, but a message about not all the photos had been voted on appeared. I had to hunt through them, and sure enough found the photo which wasn't voted on.

    I think it is a big improvement. Makes voting much easier , particularly when there are many entries , like this weeks monochrome ( 32) .

    Agree. Having left voting for all the comps till yesterday I found it particularly useful and quicker to check my choice out of ten for each entry. So thanks, Kym, great idea!

    But Debra, don't you want to check your choices with a larger image? Not sure I understand. It's easy to scroll.

    I'll go against the flow.
    It makes it hard to go back and reassess the photos and adjust scores as you go.
    If you miss voting on a photo it's easy enough to find which one it was.
    2 cents.

    Sorry for not responding earlier, Mark.

    Yes, it's easy to scroll as was always the way when voting, checking all images were voted for as well as making sure the out of ten choice was 'applicable'. With each image becoming a thumbnail once it is voted for, the checking that all have an out of ten choice is quicker and easier simply because more images are visible on the screen as it's scrolled. Any voting choice that needs reviewing can be done easily because each thumbnail can be made the full sized image again.

    During the next lot of qualifying voting, I will double check my thoughts and get back to this thread. Thanks, Mark, for your query.

    Thanks Debra for the above information. I did originally agree with MarkL. I didn't like the images reducing to a thumbnail after voting as I tend to go back at times to readjust a vote. However now that I realise you can bring the image back up to size again I will now say it is a good idea as it is handy to find an image that I may have missed voting for. However can you please tell me how to bring a thumbnail back up to full size again. Is it doubleclicking on it?

    Hi Helen. After voting the image becomes a thumbnail and next to it on the right there is a 'label' that says Full Size which you can click on.
