My final project site is up, and I’ll be adding in more of the text as the day goes on. The text is from one of my masters thesis chapters.
I considered using Omeka as a base, but decided not to for two reasons: I don’t think I have enough images to warrant it, and I have no experience with it and wanted the coding challenge (really, I know that’s odd). I spent most of my time going back and forth over how to allow viewers to see the images at a decent size with some detail. I tried using Zoomify, but didn’t like how it opened a new window to go through the image; I think this creates a disconnect and a clunky user experience. If anyone has a good (free) alternative, I’d love to hear it.
