Is there a way to increase the size of the titles or remarks that are displayed with the photos in a photo gallery? The default size is hard for us oldsters to read.
Anyone? Thanks so much.

Does anyone know if this can be done?

There are no controls to do so. However, you could opt to use your built in browser magnification to make the entire site larger on your screen.

Can you please either increase the default font size for photo galleries - or allow admins to set the font size required?

Cedric, thank you for the suggestion to CC. To set the default to a larger font seems like a simple interim fix, while you work on adding the ability for the admin to set the font size. I believe we used to have this ability, did we not? I seem to recall when I added photos for our 50th reunion, I was able to make the comments right on the photo and could select the size and maybe even the color of the comment? Am I recalling that correctly? Scott?

Here's a "fix" for the gallery font size. Put this code in Preferences in the Google Analytics section. Change to the font size you want.

Trivia: You can also put custom HTML inside of the gallery description area - including other images Wink

This sounds great! Excuse my ignorance Jack - but how do you do what you've suggested?

On your admin page there's a section called Preferences where you set various options for your class.

Scroll to the bottom till you get to a section called "ADVANCED SITE TRACKING WITH GOOGLE ANALYTICS

Paste the code above into that section and "Save Preferences".

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'd really rather have a solution that doesn't require knowing or using HTML.

Hope it helps somebody else.

"HTML" is there all the time in any and all 'web' pages, For example, your home page using GIFS from other sites is done via HTML.

Jack, it did help someone else and I've got it noted in my own personal Administrator's How to Do It page. Thanks!

I figured out and replied to her yesterday one a different thread. She had been using the older version of the Image Editor when she added text to her images. That allowed her to make the text larger and add it directly onto the image. I showed her how the new Photo Editor also has this capability.

Yup, photo editor does put text on an image - although that was not the original question Smile

It could be more convenient though to allow the gallery text area to have a variable font size. Pretty simple task and way easier for a user vs modifying each image.

Putting the text on a photo sort of destroys the photo for any future work since not only is it fixed, very inflexible but also obscures the image Idea
