The Pictures you post are great but you need to come up with a better way to view multiple pictures loading a new web page every time is so OLD SCHOOL and annoying I tend not to look at very many...I wonder if others agree

I would agree with a better viewing protocol. Not only is it a new page, but hence the next button often jumps around.

I agree. The galleries are great, but the new-page loads each and every time for each new picture is bogus. It is a blatant attempt to force us to load seven new ads each time - we get it - but it is wrong and F & S is the only modern web site of any size still inflicting such pain on its users. I'm almost to the point of unsubscribing and not participating any longer.

Ditto. Especially since it frequently causes my browser to lock up or crash.

Definitely agree, annoying as heck, and I quit many times just a few into it ... likely only doing it for page hits and in the long run, by ticking everyone off, what will that accomplish? Please change this to no more than 3-5 pages per article, tops.

I can't do it. Got to #8 and quit. Wouldn't a simple slide show do? I know how big some of those fish are, may I presume that they are adults and not juveniles? No sense of scale at all.
Nevertheless, a cool display. I'll put one of them on my next holiday cards.

Definitely agree with the comments about the pictures. Also, I have a VERY fast connection and Field and Stream still always takes forever to load. Everything from the home page to these galleries. I don't know if it's your servers or if the volume of ads bogs everything down or what, but it's getting to the point where there are times I leave the site out of frustration before I read/look at everything I wanted to.

dtbc333: what is your definition of 'forever?' we have a very slow internet here in Papua New Guinea, and Field and Stream doesn't take any longer than any other page...

I have to DIS agree,,,, some of us "older" people cannot see as clearly, ergo, the pictures being REDUced in size,, would compromise the clarity,, oh right, we can enlarge,, well, now were back to square one,, arent we?? My inet is like Paupau sometimes,, all we need is more patience,, and turn off the tv, right?? Enjoy these items, some are quite wondrous,, E
