HawkEye, as you know I am messing around with images just for fun in the 'Is anyone missing?' thread. A serious thought for you: why not add images into the Glossary?
E.g. Where you give a person's name and claim to fame, add an [IMG] line immediately before or after - or even in-between the name and the claim.
You could also add images of places, like the PdL church.

Standardise the size, say, 100x100 or 150x150. Much more meaningful than trying to cram them all into a 600x600 spread like I have done.

Just a thought.

Funnily enough, I was going to ask you the same thing, as you are collecting such an impressive gallery of portraits. I was going to ask you whether when you have completed your "portraits" project, whether you would be willing to submit your collection to this thread. I could then arrange for it to be shifted up to page 1.

The reason I've not added images to the Glossary is because of post size limitations. The Glossary continues to expand and for months I kept hitting the maximum number of 60,000 characters. I finally had to start the new thread and spread it over several consecutive posts to get the amount of space to continue posting.

When I have more time, I plan to test type font differentiation between the key word and the definition (unfortunately codes and spaces also count towards the number of characters), but I will also do some testing of adding portraits & other key images, rather like the Random House Dictionary, to see if space permits.

It's a great idea, albym!

OK, HE. The portrait montage has just about run its course. The reason I set some 'rules' about what I would and would not include in there was due to the image size restriction.
Being in the Glossary there would be no content restriction.

What I suggest is that I could create a series of montages for you.
There could be one for each letter of the alphabet, or one for each of your Glossary sections.

The former would mean more [IMG] statements (with the full path name each time) and potentially compromise your text limit so I will work on the latter for you.
If you subsequently redistribute letters between Glossary sections then we would need to re-align any affected images but that shouldn't be too onerous.

I will work on some pro-formas for you and then we can decide.

HTH. Cheers.

Hi, albym. These are marvellous! So far so good, I like the idea of leaving the images as a collage and posting them at the end of each letter of the alphabet, rather than breaking up individual photographs and images and adding them to each individual entry. I am currently using my post immediately following the master list for testing your posts before adding them to each letter, but when the postings are complete, I could use that post for the identification of all of the photos for each letter in turn? Alternatively, I could use the Small Italic font size underneath each collage to identify all of the photos. I will play around with this and see what looks best.

Now that I have taken your A-H photo collages and have added them to the GLOSSARY, take a look and see what you think. Personally, I think it adds an exciting dimension to the GLOSSARY. Note: Have since run a test for E with the captions underneath the collage. This would work quite well. You might want to take a look at that too and check the accuracy of the captions!

As you continue to work on each letter, can you supply the captions? Also could you also do a collage for the Numbers section at the beginning of the Glossary? That would be great, albym!

Hi HE. Glad you like them and I agree that they do add a valuable dimension to the Glossary. It's fun putting them together although it does take some time finding suitable images where available - and there are many that I cannot find.

I think they look good where you have placed them and I like the caption idea although that will eat up more of the 6,000 char limit than, say, using only seven chars - bracket b and slash-b - to embolden entries in the Glossary to indicate that they have an illustration in the montage.

Also, although Letter E was fairly straightforward, being entirely free-form in nature, montages are not always easy to encaption in a left-to-right, top-to-bottom fashion. I hit that snag when writing the row/column narrative for the first 'missing?' montage.

Having said the above, you, more than I, know what space you have left to play with.

At the end, or even now, another way to save characters would be to find an image repository that produces a much shorter path name to the montage file. I have no rights to the underlying images, ergo no rights to the montages either. They are 'freeware' that anyone can do with as they wish. Also, at some time in the future I think that photobucket will purge them.

Regarding captions:
- I think your Letter E test omitted 'Europol' in the inset map showing the location of Devon.

(Right-hand section, l-t-r, top to bottom)
