That brings up a question I have had in the back of my mind. I understand most people use the slideshow mode to view the photos. When I do that I don't even see the description. Is that something to do with the size of the image on my screen? Do you see the description in slideshow mode? If not how relevant is the description if you can't see it.


It's due to the poor design of the Slideshow . . . DPReview allow the Host to specify the rules and then don't give them the correct tools to run a Challenge.

So as a voter when a Challenge has a rule involving the title or Description you have to look twice at the entries, once in non-slideshow mode and once in Slideshow mode . . . as long as the device you use supports Flash, otherwise you an't use the slideshow.

I could go on and on about what is wrong with the Challenges . . but if I do Conan the Barbarian will suggest I step/jump in front of a truck or maybe a train . . . so I won't.
