  TrailPhotos - Website User Notes      

Below are a few hints for improving the performance of this website on your computer.  Because there is an emphasis on resource intensive graphics on this website, you should be able to get better looking, faster responding web pages if you can adjust to these usage guidelines:

Internet Connection Speed

Faster connections are typically better for downloading large graphics files.  Broadband connections such as cable modems, DSL or wireless broadband are generally the fastest available for the average home or work connection.  With the large number of images on this website, dial-up connections will be slow, and are not recommended.

Web Browsers

This website was created using Microsoft software, and will usually work best with updated versions of Microsoft Explorer and Mozilla Firefox. Other browsers may also be used, but may more likely result in occasional display errors.  This website has not been optimized for Safari or Opera browsers.

Monitor Resolution

Photographs and other graphics on this website will normally appear sharper and richer at higher resolutions and color settings.  In Windows computers, placing your Control Panel Display-Setting to 24 bit or 32 bit true color, if available,  should result in optimal performance.  Using a high quality graphics card in your computer is also recommended, as is using a better than average monitor.  

Setting your pixel display to a higher number of screen area pixels in the Control Panel Settings can also bring sharper images, although it will also reduce the size of text seen on your screen.  An sRGB color space profile was used to create the graphics, and setting your machine to this profile under the Display function in Windows will enable the most accurate match to photographs and map colors on this website.


This website uses some fairly standard fonts, but also some less common ones, among them Gisha and Maiandra GD.  If you do not have access to these fonts, you will get a more consistent and accurate display from this site if you can install them on your computer.  If the text lettering appears too large or small, or doesn't appear to align correctly, you can also change your Control Panel Display Settings, under the Advanced tab in Windows, to the Display Size -- Other = 100% size for fonts, and the alignment should better conform with the correct alignments used for the site design.
