      800 width and JPG quality 8, what do you think of this for image quality for the Museum areas? For example, instead of downloading a PDF file of the game documentation, you would be able to just view it online like this, except there would be a nice interface of course. Sometimes it’s nicer to just see things on your screen, instead of having to download them. If all the museum areas were built through a graphic interface, it would be more “interactive” and more “welcoming” – that’s what I’ve been thinking of lately, and showing this image is just the first step to get feedback.

      Where appropriate or desired, downloadable versions of stuff could still be available.

      Looks good. I think that both would be good. The images would be nice if you just wanted to see them, or if you wanted to get an idea of what it is, before downloading it.

      Hi, please keep in mind that many of us are accessing this site from international locations using relatively slow connections. I use a terrific download manager called Flashget, and would much rather use it to download zip and pdf files, than first viewing these files in detail on line and only then being able to download them. It would be cool if you could include small, low quality representations of the pics on the site, with a link to the high quality image for download. But I reckon a high-quality jpeg image driven interface will just be too slow.

      That is a good point. The images for the interface itself could be very compressed, so as to load quickly, but still try to have a balance to make them look nice. For any museum item, there could be thumbnails presented first, and then you can view each closeup page. Once you’re in closeup mode, you can page through the series of images, rather than have to go back to the thumbnails each time (though of course a button to still go back to the thumbnails if for example, you only want to see page 5 and page 10 and not the pages in between). Finally, on the thumbnail page, there would be the download version.
