GarethCooper.com Wider Screen Layout

As some of the more observant of you might notice, I’ve updated the website to use much more screen width. This should give my photos more space to breathe! As a side effect of publishing larger photos, I’m going to have to start watermarking them. It’s not something I’d ideally like to do, but they’re at the kind of resolution now that would make decent small prints, so I hope you’ll forgive me!

At the same time, I’ve taken the chance to add some new “social” sharing options to the posts. I hope you’ll use these to share anything you like from my site. The Flattr button is especially important. Flattr lets people make small donations to things that they appreciate. You can load your account with just a couple of quid a month, and that money will be shared out amongst your favourite web content.
