Mouseover Photo Above For Black & White Version
While editing photos, I may end up with a few different versions of the same photo. Trying to decide which version I will present to the world can be difficult. There is a plugin for WordPress called IMG Mouseover that helps make this choice a little easier. It allows two photos to occupy the same space on a page, changing from one to the other when the viewer hovers their mouse over the image. If you mouseover the image above, it will switch to a black & white version. This is a very clever way to show more photos with less space but you will want to make sure to include some text or a caption so your viewers will know they need to mouseover images to see something else. Back in February, San Diego had a “King Tide” event so I was able to use the IMG Mouseover plugin to show the difference between high & low water marks. Being able to switch between two photos really helps to make a point and tell the story. That post, with photos that show the difference in San Diego Bay’s tides can be seen here.
