Full Screen Slideshow on Spaces

So, you shelled out good money for a 21” LCD monitor with 1600 x 1200 resolution, and now you’re wondering “why do all these web sites just show me photos in a little 600 pixel wide area?” All those bright pixels, eager to light up and show off your memories, languishing unused. It’s a crying shame.

Fret no more. With the latest release of Windows Live Spaces, we’ve added a “View full screen” button that will unleash the full potential of your monitor and display slideshows as big as your display will allow.

For now, it will scale up the small pictures you’ve been seeing in page, but those of you who have been playing with our Windows Live Photo Gallery Beta 1 can see that bigger things are on the horizon. If you'd like to see it in action, take a look at my photos from a recent backpacking trip to the Alpine Lakes Wilderness in Washington's Cascade Mountains (including some panoramics stitched with the Windows Live Photo Gallery Beta 1).

Now head on over to the The Space Craft (the official Spaces Team blog) to read about all the other great stuff in this release of Windows Live Spaces.
