The homepage of the Gallery shows all of the top-level categories. To see the images within a particular category click on its name or the picture. The navigation bar will always show your position in the gallery and allow you to click a category name to return there.

Viewing & Downloading

The images in a category are initially presented as thumbnails (a small version of the image). Underneath each thumbnail are details of the higher quality versions available. The numbers are the width & height of the image in pixels: remember that the larger these numbers the higher the quality of the image but also the larger the file and the longer it will take to display. Click one of these links to immediately download the image at the preferred size.

Clicking on the thumbnail image itself will take you to the medium resolution file (usually approximately 640x480), besides which will be information relating to the image such as the subject matter, the user who submitted the image etc. Clicking on this image will then display the highest quality image available.
