Tips on Viewing Images of Websites

How to "See More" than what is in the blog posts.

If you'd like to see more than the small images in the slide show, then click on the slide show and that will take you to Picasa. Once on Picasa you can

1. View full size images, and click the left and right arrow to navigate. (Picasa top header.)
2. Download the image to your computer using the "download photo" link. (Picasa column to right of image.)
3. View all of the websites on a single page (thumbnails) by clicking the "View Album" link. (Picasa top header.)

For example, see screenshot below.

Tracking and Archiving Retail Websites

The slide show below shows 92 of the top retail websites, as they appeared on 10/27/2007. The screenshot is a 1024 x 768 resolution. You can click on the slide show to view larger versions.
