Ocean waves – Aran islands

This time on Inis Mór we travelled a bit further than Dún Aonghasa. I wanted to see Dún Eoghanachta, another ancient fort, but somehow missed it. Though we found a small side route to the shore and I spent like an hour taking pictures of the waves). It’s my favourite thing ever actually, I love to take pictures of the water, and the ocean crashing against the cliffs is a perfect subject.

I have about a hundred pictures, so I will post few of them sometime later)

    Now that’s some wild scenery. I feel like I want to be able to see your exif data from your photos – did you consider using any theme or plugin which displays it? I know a couple of good ones.

      Hmm I never thought of that to be honest, but its a good idea. So you think it will be interesting? Which plugins can you recommend?
      I still need a good plugin to post pictures – I still post large pictures using the basic wordpress interface and make them smaller with html tags which is totally wrong. I need a plugin that would create a separate smaller file out of the large one that I upload. Any chance you know a plugin that does it?..

        Hehe :D Actually, WordPress creates multiple copies of images in different sizes. Go to my most recent post, scroll down a bit and see one of the photos? Although it links to the full size version (well, the full size that I uploaded) the actual image file is “http://fiveeurofood.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/IMG_1442-1024×682.jpg”, whereas the link is to “http://fiveeurofood.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/IMG_1442.jpg”. When uploading using WordPress make sure you insert a resized image into the post (not the full size option). The link to the original will be retained. I just have a jQuery lightbox plugin which makes a nice little image viewer overlay on my site, but you might prefer a gallery plugin. I used NextGen gallery for a bit and it seems really good. For exif data – I’m not so sure about plugins, although of course they will exist. There’s a nice theme, free too, called AutoFocus which displays exif data of the images.

          Yes, this is the point – I cant use the resized option and I use the full size, because the next resized option is too small for me. Usually I want 800px and WordPress offers 600 or full size. Maybe I am doing smth wrong (

            Ah, I think the default sizes which are displayed are defined in style.css or one of the theme files. Maybe have a little tinker in there and take a look

            They look inbuilt in the wordpress admin panel, cause its always some percent of the full size picture. I will try to poke around, lets see if I manage to find it…

            Ah, you’re right – I was thinking of that theme I mentioned above. As it’s for photography it does do some image size fiddling. Actually it seems you can hack the default images sizes yourself in functions.php (http://www.deluxeblogtips.com/2010/05/max-image-size-wordpress-theme.html)
