sorry I was spelling photo with an F LOL
You have the same 'problem' - if I click on the thumbnail then I have to scroll down to see the picture. Then scroll back up to see which thumbnail I need to click to see the next image. I am using a fairly large screen size - those with smaller resolutions suffer even more.
In my opinion and the opinion of my users there should be a < on the left of the picture and a > on the right (or similar navigation).
Okay the screen may still scroll up
but at least it means that one has a simple method to scroll to the next image.
Maybe I need to tweak the layout, but I didn't know if there was an easy way to achieve this? Or an alternative option.
