Favorite Viewing Modes
Most photo galleries support the following viewing modes for photos:
- Tile views are good to get an overview about lots of photos.
- List views are mostly used to show more details than tiles can do.
- Single views are used to show single photos in full detail. You can usually swipe from one photo to another.
Not so common viewing modes:
- Calendar views give you an overview about what happened on specific days, months, etc.
- Collage views are used as interesting looking alternative to tile views.
- Map views are used to show the locations of photos on a map. It can help you finding photos much faster than in other viewing modes if you know the location.
- Augmented Reality views (see PhotoMap or Photo Compass) can be used to see where (in which direction) your photos were taken. This can be useful if you want to walk/drive back to a specific location. It’s also helpful to orientate yourself.
