So, let me ask…

With blogger, you have the option to do the lightbox setting, which basically allows you to scroll through the photos.

However, I have found that it kills your ability to zoom in, which I've always thought was ESSENTIAL for photos of toy soldiers.

What does everyone prefer? A simpler ability to scroll, or the ability to look at the details of a picture?

Personally, I hate the photo pop-out / lightbox setting. But that's just because I'm an old fart who doesn't like this new fangled Web 2.0 stuff. "twern't nothin wrong with the Web 1.0", says I.

I do not like the lightbox either!

I much prefer the lightbox in most cases. If I really want to zoom in even more I can always open the image in a new tab.

I like both. I agree that it is a pain on tablets though.

I read your blog on my tablet.

Both, but on my phone it is difficult. So If there is something I really want to look at, I go to my laptop.

+1 gbowen. A nightmare on Android tablets.

I read and follow blogs using an RSS reader, Inoreader. I don't have the problem unless I want to read the actual blog page, which I do when I see an interesting article.

I like to scroll through the photos.

I prefer the 'lightbox' and scrolling as well. If I want to zoom in I do as Albino Squirrel.
