Mo Photos Mo Problems

Some notes—hope to expand further—on the surprising number of additional website issues I faced when trying to include more photos on my blog.

  • authoring

    • taking more photos
      • at more angles
      • w/ more lenses
    • selecting
    • editing
    • narrative construction based on good photos
      • not intrinsic (but non-photographable) beauty
      • not genuine interest
    • placement
    • pruning (slow here)
    • writing captions
  • images themselves

    • interlaced / progressive
    • choosing the right size
    • multiple sizes
    • lazy loading
    • formats (e.g., WebP)
    • color space
    • compression tools
    • compression level (& options)
    • pre-sending heights
  • layouts

    • general: redesigning
    • height matching
    • viewport height limiting
    • width matching
    • small device wrapping
    • background generation
    • appearing during scrolling problem
  • storage

    • clogging git repo
    • GH pages limit << repo limit
    • separate hosting
    • CDN
