small request - when you click on a photo to view the fullsize version, is there any way we can change the display page? at the moment the photo comes up on a white page, at top left. any way we could change the colour and/or center the image too? maybe a stylesheet in the main theme? no biggie, but it would be nice to keep a theme throughout. either that, or maybe make the full-size version a pop-up window at the same dimensions as the photo?

and any plans for reading exif information? (given that a lot of the images eventually hosted on fotobuilder would be from digicams i'm guessing). even if its only reading the date and camera make?

The reason that the image comes up with a blank background in the tyop left is because that is the URL to the picture. The only HTML contained in that page is the image tag. If you were to customize that page, your image would no longer show up where you place the <IMG tag.

actually... the "display page" as the original poster put it is simply what happens when you put the full url to an image into your browser's address bar and hit enter.

its not a "page" of any kind. its just the image being loaded into the browser.

the "picturepage" is the page that you click the image to get to the "display page" and is the most specific page that you can customize.

the original poster's icon can be found on their allpics page.

the "display page" would be at http://userpic.livejournal.com/254223/11068 .

You're correct except there isn't even an img tag, so it's purely the browser's choice about how to represent the image. You could edit the style for your gallery and make the fullsize version come up however you'd like, but there's (to my knowledge) no way to change how the browser displays the raw image.
