The presentation of the albums is adapted to the used media. For most of them by clicking in the upper right corner of an illustration at the small black box with an ‘I’ some information is provided. Double-clicking a picture fixates it to a somewhat smaller size. At the bottom left of the pictures the items ‘slideshow’ and ‘fullscreen’ can be chosen. In full screen mode by double clicking at the illustration it is fixed again to a smaller size. By clicking once more at the word ‘fullscreen’ that mode is left.

All illustrations carry both visible and invisible watermarks!
